The animal rescue group, Pasado's Safe Haven, is offering a reward for information in a Pierce County case in which someone tied a goat to a tree and shot it to death with arrows.
A couple looking for a lost dog made the grisly discovery Friday morning in some woods in Graham. It appears the goat, which was wearing a collar, had been tied a tree and shot several times. The area around the animal was littered with with arrows.
The goat was found along 224th Street East between 58th Avenue East and 51st Avenue Court East.
Pasado's Safe Haven is offering a $5,000 cash reward for information that will lead to an arrest and prosecution in the case.
The group also filed a report with the Pierce County Sheriff's Office and Pierce County Animal Control.
|Pierce County prosecutors charged a 19-year-old man Wednesday with first-degree animal cruelty for allegedly using a bow and arrow to kill a goat last summer. Timothy Douglas Brown has been summoned to court March 18 for arraignment.|
A man found the dead goat tied to a tree in the Graham area Aug. 22, according to charging documents. An animal welfare group investigated and recovered five arrows at the scene, the documents state.
Sheriff's deputies talked to a witness who told them Brown and a boy said they'd shot 50 arrows at the goat after unsuccessfully trying to sell it, according to court records.
An examination of the animal's carcass found it bled to death after being hit by at least four arrows, the documents state.
The case remains under investigation and other people could be charged, prosecutors said.
