ROCK HILL, S.C. — People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is now offering a cash reward in the case of a pit bull believed to have been used as a dog fighting bait dog and then dumped and left for dead in Rock Hill.
This is a follow up to a story WCCB News @ Ten anchor Morgan Fogarty originally reported. See Fogarty’s original report HERE.
Rambo, a pit bull, was found near death in the woods off Vernsdale Road near Rambo Road in Rock Hill. He had severe gashes and bite wounds all over his body. He also had to get part of his leg amputated due to an infection.
Rambo is now expected to recover, but the York Co. Sheriff’s Office has indicated they have no leads in the case. PETA is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for this crime.
“This sweet dog endured the agony and terror of apparently being left for dead, all alone in the North Carolina woods with bloody gashes, bite wounds, and a cripplingly infected leg,” says PETA Senior Director Colleen O’Brien. “PETA is urging anyone with information to come forward immediately, before anyone else gets hurt.”
Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Crime Stoppers of York County at 1-877-409-4321 or the Rock Hill Police at 803-329-7200.
