An animal rights group offered a reward of nearly $17,000 on Wednesday for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a man who apparently kicked a squirrel into Arizona’s Grand Canyon in a video that went viral on the Internet. Appealing to members of the public to help catch the “heartless thug,” the UK branch of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) urged anyone with details about the “infamous” case to contact the Grand Canyon’s chief ranger. In the video, a shirtless man is seen apparently feeding the squirrel before booting it off the edge of a cliff and into the crimson-hued canyon. Park rangers have been investigating since they were alerted to the existence of the video earlier this week, and they believe it was filmed within Grand Canyon National Park.
