A thousand pound reward for information has been put up, after apples were found spiked with screws near Truro.

 

Last week Pirate FM revealed how a dog walker made the potentially lethal discovery at Probus.

 

Now welfare charity PETA has stepped in amid fears animals and children could be at risk.

 

Spokesman Ben Williamson said:

 

“We’ve got to stop violence as soon as it becomes apparent and because animals can’t report their own abuse and can’t speak out and are vulnerable they are easy targets and they often become practice for people who go on to harm other animals or even people.

 

“We’re strongly urging anyone who does know of incidences of animal cruelty to come forward and to report them as soon as they happen. The history of abuse shows up on the records of some of Britain’s worst criminals, Ian Huntley, Fred West, and Ian Brady. These people all started out by deliberately harming animals.”
