A $5,000 reward is being offered for the arrested and conviction of whomever is responsible for a string of animal mutilations in Sacramento.

Since January, Sacramento Animal Care Services and city police are investigating at least nine instances of animals – including chickens, goats and a tortoise – found decapitated.

The Humane Society is funding the reward.

“These animals were mutilated and killed  for no apparent reason and discarded as though they were trash,” Humane Society law enforcement specialist Eric Sakach wrote in a news release. “We are hopeful that this reward will bring forward anyone with information about these disturbing crimes.”
