Fighting Evil

I have been asked by family/friends in Dane county to post this in the hopes that these people can be found. The reward is now up to $5,000.

MADISON (WKOW) -- A $300 reward is being offered for information that leads to whoever is responsible for killing a 4-month-old chocolate lab.

The anonymous donor and volunteer of Dane County Humane Society offered to put up the money after hearing about the dog who was found in a ditch in the town of Rutland. The animal was suffocated and bound with packing tape.

If you want to contribute to the fund donations can be made online at by putting ‘Animal Protection Fund' in the comment field. Checks can also be sent to DCHS at 5132 Voges Road in Madison.

DCHS is appreciative of those who have offered to donate so far and looks forward to being able to thank many more contributors. Should no one come forward with information about this cruelty case, the funds will be used to help other animals who are harmed or neglected.

"The connection between animal cruelty and human violence is well documented," says Gayle Viney, Public Relations Coordinator for DCHS. "We are hopeful that establishing a reward fund can help bring forward additional information that can lead to the arrest of the people involved in this horrible act of animal abuse."

Studies show a correlation between animal cruelty and all manner of other crimes, from narcotics and firearms violations to battery and sexual assault. "At DCHS, we invest in youth education so that kids grow up with the knowledge and understanding of appropriate and humane animal care," says Viney.

If you have information about this case, the Dane County Sheriff's Department asks you to please contact the Tip Line at 608-284-6900.

"And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.

But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.

And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.

Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour." ~ Matt 15:22-28
