Whoever is shooting dogs in Socorro county is a danger to dogs and the entire community. 

Socorro County, NM—Between December 1, 2011 and January 23, 2012, at least eight dogs were shot within a three to four mile area of Socorro County that includes Lemitar and Polvadera. Nearly all the dogs were on their owners’ property when shot, and seven of the dogs died or had to be humanely euthanized because of their injuries. At least three of these dogs suffered before their deaths. Initial reports of six shot dogs quickly increased to at least eight confirmed victims following a news report of the crimes, after residents realized the shootings were likely connected. Two additional possible shootings are also being investigated. The Socorro County Sheriff’s Department is investigating these crimes and believes they are connected.

Animal Protection of New Mexico is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the perpetrator(s). Anyone with information regarding the deaths of these animals should call the New Mexico Attorney General’s Animal Cruelty Hot Line at 877-5HUMANE (877-548-6263). Callers may remain anonymous.

Intentionally or maliciously killing an animal in New Mexico is a fourth degree felony.
