Mobile billboard cruising DeKalb in search for dog abuser

PETA has increased the reward for information in the case.

DEKALB COUNTY, GA. - A mobile billboard will cruise portions of DeKalb County on Saturday in the search for the person who buried a dog alive in June.

The case of Lulu, who eventually succumbed to her injuries, gained national headlines after the fluffy brown chow mix was found on a trail near Rock Mountain Boulevard and Lewis Road in Tucker, Ga., on June 6.

She was in tightly packed dirt, unable to move—only her eyes and nose were remained above the underground hole.

Eric Purdue, who was cutting briars along the trail, heard something, but he wasn’t sure what it was. He moved 25 yards in the noise’s direction and stumbled upon her.

Perdue, who had been planning to adopt a dog, named the rescued animal Lulu, who died the next day.

On Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., members of PETA and Georgia Animal Rights and Protection will hand out fliers at the intersection of North Hairston Road and Memorial Drive.

A PETA billboard, displaying a photo of Lulu and announcing the combined reward offer of up to $10,500 from PETA and members of the public, will circle the Stone Mountain/Tucker area where Lulu was found.
