FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for two dead skunks found with a political sign in Fairfield, Connecticut.
The Humane Society of the United States said Wednesday that it is putting up the reward in the hope it will help find whoever mutilated the animals.
One skunk had string wrapped around its neck and was nailed to a telephone pole along with a sign that said “Obama Stinks.” The other skunk was found at the base of the pole.
A woman who noticed the dead animals called Fairfield police at 8:40 Tuesday morning.
Anyone with information that may be helpful has been urged to contact police or animal control.
