UP TO £2,000 REWARD OFFERED TO HELP NAB THUGS WHO SHOT CAT THREE TIMES BEFORE SLITTING HER THROAT
Group Warns That Animal Abusers Pose Serious Threat to Whole Community and Are Likely to Escalate Behaviour Unless Stopped
Spondon, Derbyshire – PETA is offering a reward of up to £2,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for reportedly shooting Kimmy, a 22-year-old black and white cat, three times before slitting her throat. The horrifying discovery was made by her guardian late on May 17, when he found her body abandoned in a bush outside his home near Holme Lane.
“It’s imperative that any community faced with a sadistic and violent act like this take measures to find the culprits and bring them to justice”, says PETA Associate Director Elisa Allen. “Animal abusers are a danger to everyone: they take their issues out on whomever is available to them – human or non-human – and must be caught before they act again.”
History shows that past incidents involving cruelty to animals regularly appear in the records of serial rapists and murderers. Young killers Mary Bell, Robert Thompson and Jon Venables – as well as serial murderers Ian Brady, Thomas Hamilton (the Dunblane school massacre), Ian Huntley, Raoul Moat, Dennis Nilsen and Fred West – all started out by deliberately harming animals.
Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the Derbyshire Constabulary on 101
