The Humane Society of the United States has announced a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to identification arrest and conviction of those responsible for recent animal mutilations in Sacramento.
The person who shot and killed a 26-year-old Sacramento man at an Arden Arcade apartment complex last week may have been whisked from the scene by a driver in a dark-colored sedan, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department said.
Another bag of decapitated chickens was found Wednesday morning in Midtown, one block from a similar discovery Tuesday night. Animal control officials say the discovery is at least the ninth involving mutilated livestock in recent months.
The mother of a newborn boy found dead last week in a remote Yolo County slough pleaded not guilty Wednesday to felony charges of involuntary manslaughter and abusing or endangering the health of a child.
Sacramento authorities reported another ritualistic animal mutilation case Tuesday night, saying they discovered two bags on the rail tracks near 20th and U streets with a decapitated rabbit, dead chickens and tea candles.
