Justice for Cats Found Dead in Abandoned Cages

crate_time_by_gin_grl

Target: Mick Cornett, Mayor of Oklahoma City

Goal: Find the person responsible for abandoning 24 cats to their death and enforce a maximum penalty.

Animal control officers found 24 dead cats crammed into four tiny cages in Oklahoma City. The cages were reportedly discovered in the tall grass near a road, and officers believe that they were thrown from a vehicle while the cats were still alive. According to the news reports, the decay of the bodies and the maggots in the cages make it likely that the cats had been in the field for about a week. These animals must have suffered unbelievable pain in that amount of time, and the person responsible for this cruelty must be found and held accountable.

The cages in which these cats were discovered were carrying-sized, meaning that they were designed to hold one animal at a time. Yet officers found three cats in the first crate, seven in the second, six in the third, and eight in the fourth. Two dozen animals should never be confined to four single-sized cages, and forcing these cats into such overcrowded quarters is an act of abuse on its own. The saddest part of this story, however, is the fact that these cats were left to die needlessly; the local animal shelter is available to take unwanted animals, and would have been happy to take in these cats so that they could find a new home.

Julie Bank, director of Oklahoma City Animal Welfare, has stated that the organization hopes to find out why this happened and who is responsible in order to “honor the memory of those animals that now are left in a pretty gruesome situation.” Whoever abandoned these cats could face felony charges, and must be held responsible for this act of unnecessary cruelty. Sign the petition below to urge Mick Cornett, the mayor of Oklahoma City, to make the investigation of this crime a priority and ensure that these cats receive the justice they deserve.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mayor Cornett,

Twenty-four cats were found dead in Oklahoma City after they had been crammed into four tiny cages and left by the side of a road. Animal control officers reportedly found the crates behind some tall grass, and believe that the cats were thrown from a vehicle while still alive. Based on the condition of the bodies and the maggots in the cages, these cats had likely been in the field for about a week.

The cages were carrying-sized and designed to hold one animal at a time, yet officers found three cats in the first crate, seven in the second, six in the third, and eight in the fourth. These animals must have suffered an extreme amount of pain before they died, all of which was needless – the local animal shelter gladly takes in unwanted animals, and would have helped find a new home for these cats.

Whoever is responsible for this unnecessary cruelty must be located and brought to justice. I am urging you to make this investigation a priority. Please take action to ensure that the person responsible for the death of these cats is discovered and faces felony charges.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Catch this criminal and hand out the longest harshest sentence possible . STOP animal abuse!!! This is a sick depraved sicko that acted in a cruel depraved way towards living creatures. This kind of sicko should be monitored the rest of their life for crimes against animals children and the vulnerable. Do NOT let sick killers walk around free to hurt and murder again. This perpetrator is Sick.

  2. What is so wrong with finding a shelter to take unwanted animals? It’s not hard.

    • Shelters usually kill pets, so it was just a choice of what type of death for those cats.

      • Carrena Cogglin says:

        SERIOUSLY!!! That’s your argument! They died a slow death. Animal shelters humanely ‘kill’ them. People overbreed them. That’s why they sometimes can’t cope with the amounts of animals.

  3. How disgusting! Let’s cram those people into a cage and throw them out!! Justice!!!!!!!

  4. “The saddest part of this story, however, is the fact that these cats were left to die needlessly; the local animal shelter is available to take unwanted animals, and would have been happy to take in these cats so that they could find a new home.”
    Not to condone in any way what was done to these cats, but they likely would have been killed anyway at this animal shelter unless it was a no kill facility….such is the sad scheme of things today.Killing is bad, whether done by ‘humane’ shelter staff or by pet breeders/sellers.

    Fucking POS… No surprise comming from this subhuman state Oklahoma… I hope the fuckers will be stabbed soon…

  6. Oklahoma scores big again in animal abuse! What a joke! People do what they want, they know they can get away with it.

  7. Cecily Colloby says:

    Until vile scum like the person or people who did this get EXACTLY the same done to them as they did to these poor, innocent cats, then they will continue to carry out acts of cruelty. WHEN are those who make our pathetic laws going to realise this and make the punishment fit the crime??? I am sick to death of hearing of unbelievable cruelty which some braindead idiot judge “punishes” with a slap on the wrist.The public should just take the law into their own hands and deal with these animal abusers in an “appropriate” way because those who are SUPPOSED to do the job appear to be a bunch of useless numbskulls, every one of them….

  8. CATCH THE CRIMINAL AND KILL IT WITH NOT A WORRY NOW.JUSTICE FOR THESE CATS NOW.

  9. Carol C Brown says:

    Addressing the Mayor is actually where this needs to start for justice. Animal abuse in ALL cities can be stopped at the city government level…we have a HUGE problem in Oklahoma and it hasn’t been publicized nearly enough for the citizens of this state to realize it HAS to be an issue. This is beyond horrible…
