Oklahoma Police on the Hunt for Duo Accused of Brutally Killing Animals at Local Pet Store
In a shocking incident of animal cruelty, Oklahoma City Police are on the lookout for a heartless man and woman who stand accused of brutally killing several innocent animals at a local Petland store. The heinous act occurred on July 14, 2023, leaving the community outraged and demanding justice.
A Gruesome Discovery at Petland Store
On that fateful day, officers from the Oklahoma City Police Department were called to the Petland store in response to a report of animal cruelty. The assistant manager informed the authorities that a parakeet was found lifeless inside its enclosure with apparent signs of a broken neck. Shockingly, nearby, they discovered the lifeless body of a rabbit in its enclosure as well.
Surveillance Footage Unveils Cruel Culprits
As suspicions grew among the store staff after finding two dead animals, the store manager decided to review the surveillance footage. The footage revealed the horrifying actions of a man and woman who entered the store at approximately 3:30 p.m. that day.
The video depicted the man, after interacting with a puppy, heading towards the area where the rabbits and parakeets were kept. What followed was a disturbing act of cruelty, as the man could be seen reaching into the rabbit enclosure, restraining the innocent creature, and then releasing it. The woman, seemingly acting as a lookout, was close by during this horrific scene.
In another chilling clip, the man extended his hand into the parakeet enclosure, displaying a complete lack of empathy, as he callously broke the bird’s neck. Their cold-hearted spree did not end there, as they callously took a hamster and a guinea pig before leaving the store.
A Heartbreaking Tragedy Unfolds
The aftermath of their cruel actions was discovered by the assistant manager, who stumbled upon the lifeless body of the hamster. Tragically, it appeared that the poor creature had been stomped to death, causing immense grief among the store’s staff. Additionally, a guinea pig remains unaccounted for, further deepening the sorrowful situation.
