A shocking case of animal cruelty has authorities asking for your help.

Someone is poisoning the wolves at the Safari Sanctuary in Broken Arrow. Over the past six months, five animals have died, and several others have become very sick.

Investigators suspect someone is throwing arsenic or poison-laced meat into the animals' pen, causing slow, painful deaths.

Frank Gaddy with Safari Sanctuary: "It's hard to imagine why somebody would come into property that's honestly, the animal’s last home and take their lives. It's just a sad deal."

A reward is being offered for anyone with information leading to an arrest and conviction for this felony offense.

If you have any information, call the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office at 485-3124.

The park is trying to raise money to buy a security system.
