Someone has been shooting and killing skunks and putting them in garbage bags, then dumping them on the river. In three different occasions these bags have been found about a mile in on Love Creek Road and around the memorial for the mud slide of 1982.
California Penal Code 597PC is a law for the prevention of torturing or cruelly killing a domesticated and or a wild animal. And because police cannot always witness this, the public is encouraged to report these crimes.
To report animal cruelty call Santa Cruz County Animal Services at 454-7200.
