The Friends of Frying Pan Farm Park are offering a $7,500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who has attacked animals at Frying Pan Farm Park.
The reward was announced at a press conference today at Frying Pan Farm Park, located on West Ox Road, just south of Herndon. The money was donated by the Friends group as well as other area residents who are concerned about the attacks.
Two goats, a calf and a chicken were cut sometime between 5 p.m on Saturday, May 26 and 7 a.m. on Sunday, May 27, just one month after three horses were slashed overnight on a nearby property.
The Fairfax County Park Authority says though the incident is "deeply disturbing and very saddening, the community has remained positive while coming together to support the injured animals."
Fairfax County Park Authority's leadership and board said they are grateful for the outpouring of support and the Frying Pan staff reports that the animals are healing quickly and doing well.
The Park Authority is continuing to work closely with the police to solve the crime. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131, Crime Solvers anonymously at 866-411-8477, or send an email at www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org.
