Killer of wildlife amongst us

If anybody in the community knows the person or opersons who has been trapping wildlife, ie raccoons, possums etc, taking them to Lake Clementia in a cage & drowing them. Pulling the dead bodies out & dumping them in the trash can at the boat ramp, I personnaly found 1 yesterday perfectly healthy dripping wet. This is the 3rd one I have found in the last 8 mon. I spoke to 2 other people at the site that informed me that in the last 26 mon. a dozen or more have been found in the same condition in the same trash can. If anyone has any information PLEASE add to this forum.

Oh how horrible

OMG that is just horrible for someone to do and for someone to find.  I cannot imagine. 

If someone has a wild creature that is bothering their home or whatever...take out to the back 40 and release it.  No need to kill it.

Agree

That was exactly my thought to release in our back area.

More comments about dead wildlife

A lot of comments on RanchoMurieta.com's Facebook page. Here are some of them:

Cathy Blank Long Very alarming. One of the many beauties of our community is the wildlife. If the animals are a nuisance, ask for assistance. Drowning is not acceptable. This pathetic human needs to leave.

Myrna Solomon From volunteering at WEAVE I learned that mostly boys start their violent behavior on animals...and gradually move on to humans . There is a very sick person doing this.

Taylor Chavez I grew up in RM. I love it there. How could somebody do this to an animal? Why haven’t they been caught yet? SERIOUSLY

Rhiannon Romero Moore I heard about this at dinner today too. 

Alli Banks Rhiannon Romero Moore this is Dexter shit. No way will someone who loves animals like me not camp out all night and day to catch this SOB

Alli Banks Rm,com. Exact location of trash can? I will pay residents to allow me to install cameras

Nellie Norris Bloom Has this been reported to security? Thank you Rancho Murieta.com for bringing this to the community's attention. Which group of our elected officials could monitor this once it's been reported? SPCA > https://www.facebook.com/SacSPCA/Dept of Fish and Game > https://www.facebook.com/CaliforniaDFW/

Stephanie Xenos This is definitely an individual that needs some mental intervention. One or two. Ok. But over 20 is something more than pesky critters in my yard. It’s pretty scary

Brenda Sizemore This is really sick. Makes me wonder about people’s cats when they go missing. I agree cameras should be installed and this person needs to be caught and arrested for cruelty to animals! Unacceptable behavior! I’d be willing to contribute $$ towards the cause.

Tiffany C Villareal Harming/killing animals is a characteristic of a psychopath, then they graduate onto humans. Earlier you catch this person, the better

Thank you

I am overwelmed by the response from the community over what I experienced. I am very glad to hear that I am not the only one that finds this action intolerable. Someone out there must know who this is.

Myrna Solomon is so right...

Myrna Solomon is so right....this behavior usually graduates into hurting people

Sheriff Laurie Costello at Crime Prevention 916-876-8322

I contacted Sherriff Laurie Costello 916-876-8322 she wanted to hear more about this problem.

From my last experience I found out that security can NOT do much.....just observe...their hands are tied......

WE MUST CONTACT THE SHERIFFS DEPARTMENT WHEN THESE THINGS HAPPEN....OR THEY WILL NOT GIVE US MORE SHERRIFF HELP OUT HERE

This is so sad and cruel
