While the loss of life is estimated at only approximately $4,000 (suggesting that most of the fish killed were common, captive-bred freshwater fish, which are commonly sold at Walmarts), animal cruelty towards any life is still animal cruelty. Any person capable of willfully abusing animals is a potential psychopath that society simply can not ignore.
Anyone with information about this crime or who may be able to help identify the suspect should call Cambria County’s non-emergency police line: 1-800-281-1680. Cambria County is located in southwest Pennsylvania, USA.
