"PETA silent as groups push for answers about stolen dog"
At WAVY.com, Erin Kelly reported on this one:
"Wilbur Cerate owned the dog, named Maya. He said one weekend in October he discovered the dog was missing. He checked surveillance video, which shows a PETA van pull up, two workers get out, and one snatch the dog off his porch.
“I was angry. I understand they pick up my dog, if it was in a tree or another place, but this is in my house,” Cerate told 10 On Your Side.
The two women from PETA came back to his house three days later, he said. They brought a fruit basket and terrible news — Maya had been euthanized. He said they didn’t provide any proof, so he called police and thought the women would be held accountable.
WAVY News has made repeated attempts to contact PETA about the case, including phone calls and emails to their offices in Norfolk and Washington, D.C. Two WAVY reporters have visited the Norfolk headquarters twice this week — both times, a receptionist referred questions to the D.C. office, which has not returned any calls."
