A mixed breed dog was subjected to unimaginable cruelty when someone buried her alive on a path near Rock Mountain Boulevard and Lewis Road in Dekalb County, Georgia. The dog, dubbed “Lulu,” was found by Eric Purdue on June 6 – though Lulu was taken to a veterinarian for emergency treatment, she did not survive.
Now, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has upped the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever abused Lulu to $10,000. The hefty reward will hopefully lead to tips which will assist the authorities in finding the person(s) who treated Lulu so cruelly.
“Someone must know where this dog came from and who buried her alive, leaving her to suffer in terror for days,” says PETA Vice President Colleen O’Brien.
Anyone with information is asked to call DeKalb County Animal Services at 404-294-2939.
