Two PETA employees arrested for animal cruelty
The Associated Press
Two employees of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have been
charged with animal cruelty after dumping dead dogs and cats in a
shopping center garbage bin, police said Thursday.
Investigators staked out the bin after discovering that dead animals had
been dumped there every Wednesday for the past four weeks, Ahoskie
police said in a prepared statement.
Police found 18 dead animals in the trash bin and 13 more in a van
registered to PETA. The animals were from animal shelters in Northampton
and Bertie counties, police said.
Police charged Andrew Benjamin Cook, 24, of Virginia Beach, Va., and
Adria Joy Hinkle, 27, of Norfolk, Va., each with 31 felony counts of
animal cruelty and eight misdemeanor counts of illegal disposal of dead
animals. They were released on bond and an initial court date was set
for Friday in Winton.
PETA has a long-standing relationship with shelters to euthanize pets
that the shelters feel are no longer adoptable, a spokeswoman told
Hinkle has been suspended, but Cook continued to work for the
organization based in Norfolk, Va., the television station reported.
