Two People Are Wanted for the Slaughter of Numerous Animals at a Pet Store in Oklahoma

Oklahoma police are looking for a man and woman suspected of killing a rabbit, parakeet, and hamster at a pet store earlier this month. On July 14 at around 6 o’clock in the evening, the Oklahoma City Police Department responded to a report of animal abuse at a Petland store.

An assistant manager met the officers and reported that a parakeet had been found dead in its cage with a broken neck. A rabbit enclosure close by contained a similarly lifeless rabbit. The discovery of two dead animals raised suspicions among employees, prompting the store manager to examine security footage.

According to the police report, a man and a woman entered the business at around 3:30 p.m. and asked to see the puppies before leaving with one. The man visited the section of the pet shop housing the bunnies and parakeets after spending time with the puppy.

The tweet below verifies the news:

According to the police, the man can be seen in the footage reaching into the cage, grabbing one of the rabbits, and then releasing it after looking about. According to the authorities, in yet another video, the man can be seen reaching into a cage for parakeets, with the woman standing nearby but seemingly keeping watch.

The man seemingly snaps the parakeet’s neck as he reaches into the cage. He allegedly purchases a hamster and guinea pig before leaving the store with the female customer.

The hamster was found by the assistant manager, who reported to authorities that it had been stomped to death. She looked everywhere, but the guinea pig eluded her. The Animal Welfare Division of Oklahoma City has opened an investigation.
