Danbury, Ottawa County

Phil Wolf and his wife care for cats in the quiet Lakeside community, east of Port Clinton. Some of the cats are feral, and others are friendly.

In recent months, someone in the community has been poisoning the cats, and others have gone missing. Wolf had necropsies performed on two of his favourite cats, who were found dead on his property Memorial Day weekend and verified that they’d been poisoned.

At least nine cats have fallen victim to the anonymous killer.

The Ottawa county Humane Society is investigating, because poisoning animals is a crime. The administrators of Lakeside have stated they will not tolerate the poisoning of any animals and will prosecute the killer if found.

There is a reward of $3,000 for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible.

You can contact the Ottawa County Humane Society at hsocpets@yahoo.com or by calling 419-734-4353 or the Danbury Police Department at (419) 732 -2549 or e-mail policeinvestigaitons@danburypolice.com.

The Nitro Foundation realized their mission make animal abuse a first offense felony in Ohio, when Nitro’s Law HB90 was signed into law by Governor John Kasich on July 1. The Nitro Foundation sees this as just the beginning, and plans to build onto Nitro’s Law to further strengthen animal welfare laws in Ohio.

You can find out more about Nitro’s Law on the Foundation’s website.

Reward Offered in Frying Pan Park – Animal Attacks

Comments Off on Reward Offered in Frying Pan Park – Animal Attacks

A recent attack on some farm animals outraged a community in Fairfax County, and now it’s banding together, offering a reward to help find whoever hurt the animals and taking new steps to protect them. 

After eight stitches and eight staples, Henry the calf is recovering well. Henry, two goats and a chicken were attacked Memorial Day weekend at the Kidwell Barn at Frying Pan Park in the Herndon, Va., area.

Police have not made any arrests in the case.

Outraged by the crime, a group called Friends of Frying Pan Park is offering $7,500 in reward money.

“We’d like really to get a solution to find out what happened and who or what happened and how that happened and so we can get that out of our mind,” President Jack Pitzer said.

At the time of the incident, Henry was inside the barn and the door was open. While Frying Pan officials said barn doors can be closed, they can’t be locked because it’s a fire hazard.

Police would not go into detail but said additional security measures have been implemented.

Many of the same detectives working the case are also trying to determine who slashed three horses one month earlier at a nearby location

“Other than the proximity and the location, we don’t have a lot of physical evidence that we can talk about that would link them, however logically it makes sense,” said Lucy Caldwell of Fairfax County police.

Fairfax County police said they’ve gotten some tips, some leads, but they’re really hoping the reward money will help them close the case.
