Maine Friends of Animals Offers Reward in Parkman Poisonings

In response to the recently reported rash of suspected poisonings of cats and dogs in the Parkman area of the state, Maine Friends of Animals (MFOA) is offering a $500 reward for the arrest and conviction of those individuals responsible.

As reported in the Bangor Daily News on January 10, the suspicious death of a dog and the sickening of other dogs and cats in the area has animal guardians on alert.

This is not the first time that there have been suspected pet poisonings in Piscataquis county. Five dogs mysteriously died in 2006 from suspected poisonings in the Abbot and Monson area. Poisoned meat was left in driveways in those cases.

In the recent Parkman case, antifreeze was the suspected poison that killed the dog Churchill. Gary Grant and his wife Shelia said their dog first exhibited symptoms in early December. They took Churchill to Donald Champlin DVM, but even after extensive treatments lasting weeks, Churchill succumbed to the poisoning.

Robert Fisk, Executive Director of MFOA is outraged by the deaths of the dogs."Whoever is doing this needs to be caught as soon as possible before more unsuspecting animals get sick or die. The community is at risk from this very misguided individual.

We encourage those with any information to come forward before this person strikes again. We also urge people to keep their animals indoors for their safety." MFOA is offering a $500 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the poisonings. Concerned citizens can contact MFOA or the Piscataquis County Sheriff with any information that will help solve these crimes. Any information provided with be strictly confidential.

MFOA is the leading animal protection group in Maine and has been working to make a difference in their life's since 1997.
