Rikki’s Refuge and Mary the Emu
Rikki’s Refuge has set up a MARY MEMORIAL FUND and an INCREASE THE REWARD FUND!
Please see the DROP DOWN MENU on the donation page, thanks!
MARY MEMORIAL FUNDS will be used for the daily care and feeding of all our refuge animals, and daily operations, in Mary’s name!
INCREASE THE REWARD FUND donations will be held to increase the reward being offered for information leading to the arrest/conviction of Mary’s killer.
On Tuesday morning (1-7-14) at approximately 9:00 A.M. our EMU, MARY, was shot and killed in a fenced area of our property. This incident was investigated by Animal Control. A necropsy performed by the State Vet. Lab in Warrenton, determined the cause of death to be a gunshot wound. The projectile splintered Mary’s femur and bone shards subsequently severed her femoral artery, causing her to bleed to death.
We are (currently) offering a $5000 reward to the person(s) who supply us with information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) who committed this crime. Contact us at mail@RikkisRefuge.org or P.O. Box 1357, Orange, VA. 22960. We will keep the name of any informers confidential and also welcome anonymous tips. If you prefer to deal directly with the Sheriff, you may call 540-672-1200 or 540-672-9225 for Animal Control.
PLEASE CALL RIKKI’S REFUGE AT: (540)-854-0870 X1 IF YOU HAVE INFORMATION!
