Some disturbing news coming out of the Northeast today. Apparently, Washington Humane Society officers are heavily investigating two cases of cold-blooded animal murder and they’re looking for help in solving these senseless and heinous crimes.

In April an innocent opossum and her ten babies were stoned to death in an alley behind 16th Street, NE and a month later an innocent cat was brutally found stoned to death on the 200 block of Maryland Avenue, NE.

National studies have shown that individuals who commit these senseless acts of animal cruelty are seven times more likely to commit other anti-social acts such as violence towards people. So this individual or individuals pose a risk to the entire DC community.

If you have any information regarding these heinous crimes, please contact the Humane Law Enforcement Department at 202-BE HUMANE. All calls are confidential.

  4. Possums usually come out late at night or early in the morning. Mama possums are especially vigilant.

    How about assigning another officer to patrol this area?

  5. Both incidences occurred in April, so assigning another officer to the area probably wouldn’t help solve them. WHS is looking for individuals with any tips or information that might lead officers to the individual(s) who committed these crimes.
