Family Pets Hung...
$2500 Reward Issued
A Lynnwood, WA man suffered the loss of two beloved family pets this week. After hearing a commotion in his backyard during the early morning hours of July 27, he ran out of the house to find both of this young dogs hanging from a rope tied around their necks. Wiggles, named for her habit of moving her entire body when she was happy, was now deathly still. Peanut was still struggling so Joseph tried in vain to release him from his snare. He then returned with a knife to cut the rope a short time later, but it was too late, Peanut was gone too.
Our heart goes out to Joseph and his family during this terrible time and Pasadoâ€™s Safe Haven wants to help find those responsible for tearing his family apart. We are offering a reward of $2,500 to anyone who provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of Peanut and Wiggles killers. We have spoken to Joseph at length and he recalled the dedication and love he felt toward these two young dogs who he saved from an animals shelter. Why anyone would want to take them away from him in this horrible way is a mystery.
Peanut and Wiggles were gentle and social so Joseph is almost certain that they did not even bark when their killers approached the fence. They managed to slip a noose around their neck, feed the rope over the fence and secure the other end of the rope to a post. The scratch marks on the fence show how hard they fought to stay alive. This most certainly was a pre-meditated crime, possibly carried out by the same person(s) who terrorized another young dog, also named Peanut, by leaving her for dead in a Lynnwood dumpster a month earlier. Fortunately, this little girl escaped death and has now been adopted into a good home. We have posted a $3,000 reward for her case. Read about her story here.
Lynnwood police are investigating this double murder but have no leads at this time.
Weâ€™ll continue to following the case of Peanut and Wiggles and keep you updated as details become available so check back soon.
