Several organizations are offering a reward of nearly $10,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for burning a calf alive.
Canfield Auto Spa, the Humane Society of the United States and the Columbiana County Farm Bureau are contributing to the reward after the calf was intentionally burned alive on a Lisbon farm sometime Sept. 28.
Its owner, Edward Sabol, discovered the calf a day or two later while taking count of his cattle, according to a Humane Society news release. The calf had to be euthanized.
A local veterinarian confirmed that an accelerant was thrown onto the calf before it was set ablaze, causing the young animal extreme pain and lethal shock.
Anyone with information should contact the Columbiana County Sheriff’s Office at 330-424-1104.
