Reward increased in Kinston animal cruelty case

Posted: Updated:
KINSTON, N.C. - A reward has been increased in a case of animal cruelty in Kinston.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals added $1500 more to the already existing reward. That brings the total to $2500. The Lenoir County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and a private donor are both offering $500.

On Saturday, officers responded to a report of cruelty to animals at a home on Queen Street.

The owner told them that someone had decapitated one of her rabbits and skinned another alive. Two of the six rabbits she owned were stolen, one was decapitated, and another skinned on both sides and left alive in the cage. Two others were unharmed. The skinned rabbit has since died.

If you have any information about the crime, you’re asked to call police at (252) 939-4020.
