Animal rights charity PETA is offering a substantial reward for information after two hedgehogs were allegedly killed in Glossop this week.

It’s believed the hedgehogs were set on fire sometime overnight between Tuesday August 21st and Wednesday August 22nd, within the rose garden area of Manor Park.

Now, PETA are offering up to £2,000 for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible.

PETA director, Elisa Allen, said: “It’s imperative that any community faced with cruel and callous acts such as these take measures to find the culprit and bring him or her to justice.

“Animal abusers are a danger to everyone- they take their issues out on whomever is available to them, human or non-human- and must be caught before they act again.”

According to the charity, history shows that past incidents involving cruelty to animals regularly appear in the records of killers such as Ian Huntley, Fred West and Ian Brady.

Derbyshire Police are currently following a number of line of inquiry, but would like to hear from anyone with any information which could help.

They can be contacted via Facebook, Twitter or their website – www.derbyshire.police.uk/contact-us – or via the non-emergency 101 number.

Please quote the reference number, 18*399309 and the name of the officer on the case, PC Patrick Haley.
