A 2008 article reported a rise in abuse against animals. Four years later, cruelty cases continue to disturb us.
Just when we think we have seen the worst, a new, horrific and deeply disturbing case of animal cruelty comes to us.
The very recent case of an apparently tortured cat left in a dumpster on Morisset Avenue was one of those cases.Once over our initial shock and revulsion though, these cases renew our determination to solve these crimes and to make them a thing of the past.
We can only solve these heinous crimes with the support of our community as a partner in our investigations to bring perpetrators to justice.
We rely heavily on the community to be our eyes and ears, to bear witness to crimes against animals, and to donate the funds for the work of our Rescue and Investigations Services Team.
We were very gratified that several outraged souls both locally and across the country have pledged funds for a reward for anyone providing information leading to an arrest.
You can help. Please spread the word that we are looking for witnesses in this case, that there is a reward and that weneed them to come forward.
