from Pasadosafehaven.org:

$10,000 REWARD OFFERED IN SHOOTING OF
DOGS IN ST. BERNARD PARISH

Fourteen dogs, left by their owners in hopes of returning to them,
were slaughtered, shot in the body cavity, forcing the dogs to suffer a
prolonged death. All were found dead at Beauregard Middle School in St.
Bernard Parish, New Orleans.

$10,000 REWARD OFFERED BY WASHINGTON STATE ANIMAL RESCUE GROUP
Pasado's Safe Haven, a Washington State animal rescue organization
that has rescued over 700 animals from New Orleans homes, has issued a
$10,000 reward seeking the conviction of the individual(s) responsible for
shooting the dogs to death at Beauregard Middle School. Pasado's Safe
Haven has issued numerous rewards in the past seeking conviction of
perpetrators of heinous animal cruelty cases, which great results.

WHY A $10,000 REWARD IN THE NEW ORLEANS CASE?
The middle school was a temporary shelter for evacuees who, after
flood waters rose, were ordered not to take their pets with them. Many of
the pet owners scrawled their names and phone numbers on the wall of the
middle school room, in an effort to have their pets reunited with them.
All of the fourteen dogs were found shot, lying in pools of blood.
These evacuees lost everything. To find out that the pets they tried to
save were killed in this manner is the final blow.

According to Pasado's Safe Haven Humane Investigator, on the ground in
St. Bernard Parish, "The dogs who were shot in St. Bernard Parish
did not die immediately. They were not shot in the head to quickly
bring about death. Shooting an animal in the body cavity is one of the most
cruel ways to kill an animal."

According to St. Bernard Parish Sheriff Jack Stephens, the
shell-casings are consistent with those used by law enforcement. Before this
incident occurred, a St. Bernard Sheriff's Officer was documented shooting
dogs in the street by a Dallas news videographer.

also, from bestfriends.org comments:

This has to be the worst story ever, and will probably get worse.
Another school has been found with the same scene inside, it just keeps
getting worse. Beauregard Middle School was used as a staging area, where
people were brought and allowed to bring their pets. After three days,
they were evacuated, but then were told they could NOT bring their
animals. They were told that the animals would be taken care of by the
police, and were left with plenty of food and water. The saddest thing of
all are the notes that the owners left on the walls and doors of the
schoolrooms where they trustingly but reluctantly left their beloved
babies. All the dogs were identified, and most seemed to have had tags.
There was a mother dog with 6 puppies, a large dog that had a note begging
that it not be shot. From the condition of the bodies, the dogs were
all shot, some many times, shortly after the people were evacuated. Some
of the dogs were tied, some tried to run, to no avail. There were piles
of shells in the rooms, marked "Tactical" for all that means.
Whoever did this is the epitome of evil. If they would do this to an
innocent dog, they would do it to a human being, with the same chilling
coldness. If this was done by policemen, they must immediatly be removed
from their jobs and prosecuted. Here is the heartwrenching letter just
left on ericsdogblog.: by savethepets3, 9/30/05 1:23 ET I just answered
the phone to hear a sobing woman on the other end of the line .. Carol,
John, their son and daughter inlaw were all together when they watched
CNN. She could barely speak to me after watching CNN .. carols 14 year
old husky/Shep named bullet was most likely one of the four dogs in
this family that was shot to death. She adopted this dog from the pound as
a puppy and raised it and loved it for 14 years. Bullet was hit by a
car when he was a puppy and she just got done paying off the $4000.00
bill from the vet .. then she got tests and medicine for the dogs
arthritis ... this family has been trying to get thie!
r dogs b
ack since the day after the storm. They were promised my the police
that their animals would be taken care of .. well with the help of people
like you and i, we had fostercare already setup for the dogs. This is
only one story of one of the dogs in the family .. all 4, were almost
certain shot to death in PGT Middle school .. John was in the bedroom and
is so distraught that he couldn't talk to me .. his dog was "Angel
Girl" the black lab that slept in his bed with him every night and
the dog that woke them up and saved their lives when the water started
rising .. one of the dogs that was shot to death in cold blood.
