Reward Offered for Animal Cruelty Case in FLDS Community

Jul 19, 2012

A $15,000 reward has been offered in a recent case of animal cruelty in the FLDS-dominated bordertown of Colorado City, Arizona.

The now infamous cat mutilation case actually took place on May 31, but only recently received local and national news attention when footage was posted on Youtube.

Cedar City private investigator Sam Brower says it is a familiar form of intimidation directed at those who speak out against FLDS leadership, implying "If you don't toe the line, this is what could happen to you."

The Mohave County Sheriff's office has posted the reward for information leading to a conviction in the case. The reward comes from the Humane Society of the United States, the Humane Society of Utah, and the Best Friends Animal Shelter in Kanab.
