What started as a routine day of patrolling the Chattahoochee River, turned into something straight out of a horror film for Jason Ulseth. Sadly, however, this was real. Ulseth first noticed white fluff emerging from the river but a closer look revealed the unfathomable … ten beheaded goats floating in the river. We can’t begin to imagine the range of emotions that swept across him realizing that someone was sick enough to commit such cruelty. Our best guess is shock, sadness, anger, fear, and heartbreak.
This crime goes much further than animal cruelty, however, as the Chattahoochee River supplies drinking water to 5 million people. This type of behavior and complete disregard for animals and human life is despicable, the person responsible needs to be identified, caught and charged as soon as possible! Please sign the Care2 Petition and tell Georgia authorities that sweeping this under the rug is unacceptable and you expect them to put everything into finding this evil person.
History has shown that people capable of committing extreme acts of cruelty to animals often move on to humans, as in the case of Jeffrey Dahmer. It’s a pattern even the FBI has taken note of, and since 2016, they’ve been monitoring animal crimes along with other serious crimes.
Sign the petition today to demand local officials to continue their search for as long as it takes and to implement more drastic measures to ensure the safety of people and animals. Ulseth stated that never in his 11 years of patrolling the river has he ever seen anything so obscene- let’s make sure he (or anyone else) ever have to again!
