Justice for Kitten Burned to Death

Kitten Jessica Peralta

Target: Mike Keating, Deputy Police Chief, Forest Park Police

Goal: Find and punish person responsible for burning a cat so severely that it died of its injuries.

A 3-month-old kitten is dead after succumbing to injuries consistent with being set on fire or tied to a firecracker. The cat, named Sprouts, was originally found in an alley with severe burns all over his body. He was then transported to the Felines & Canines Shelter in Chicago, where he received medical care. The cat’s injures were so severe that he later succumbed to a stroke, likely caused by the extreme physical stress brought on by his injuries.

This act shocked the community of Forest Park, where the cat was found. News of the case quickly spread on social media, prompting rights group In Defense of Animals to offer a reward to anyone with information leading to the conviction of the person responsible. When found, the person responsible could face third degree felony charges punishable by up to five years in prison.

This crime displays a shocking lack of regard for the suffering of animals. Especially considering that people capable of severe animal abuse can often escalate their violence to humans, it is imperative that the person responsible is apprehended immediately. Sign the petition below to ask the Forest Park police to dedicate extra resources to the investigation of any tips in the interest of quickly taking this violent offender off the streets.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear  Mr. Keating,

An investigation is currently underway into the death of a 3-month-old kitten named Sprouts. Sprouts was found with serious burns consistent with being lit on fire or tied to a firecracker. Though he was transported to an emergency veterinary clinic, he succumbed to the severity of his injuries, suffering a stroke due to the extreme stress on his body. The death of this cat not only shocked the community of Forest Park, but went viral on social media.

The person who committed this crime is capable of extreme malice toward innocent animals, and worse, could be at risk of escalating his violence toward humans. In order to ensure that both pets and residents of Forest Park are safe, the person responsible must be taken off the streets immediately. We, the undersigned, ask that you dedicate all available resources to apprehending and charging the person responsible for this abhorrent cruelty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Oh my God! How can this mean inhumane person do this cruel thing to a poor, defenseless kitten! I could just cry for the pain and anguish the poor baby went through!!
    This heartless person needs to be in jail, forever for torturing and killing this beautiful kitten!

  2. Deputy Police Chief Keating: PLEASE DO NOT sweep this under the legal rug because it was “just a kitten”. It was a life that was used for sick pleasure of sick people that need to be treated as the criminals they ARE. Imagine the pain this tine cat suffered.

    R.I.P. Little Sprouts. I’m sorry you had to suffer like this.

  3. I can’t be the only one who says, “I %@#&ing hate people.”each time I get an email from force change.

  4. “The only difference between a dog, cat, horse and dolphin and a cow, chicken, pig and turkey is perception. One is no more valuable than another. And yet in this culture, we hold the former animals in high esteem and the latter we brutalize for food. All animals are deserving of respect and freedom from violence. The way to respect others is veganism.”

  7. This animal torturing monster/s must be found. I wouldn,t jail the vile monster I would kill the fuck slowly by burning this subhuman filth to death the same as defenceless and innocent kitten Sprouts endured.
    What the hell is going on in the vile and sadistic brains of these animal torturing monsters. The trouble with these sadistic,callous and heartless subhuman monsters their vile and evil pea size brains are so far up their filthy arses that they are brainless monsters from hell. Rid the Planet of these subhuman animal torturing filth.

  8. This is truly a shocking report of animal abuse. Find this scumbag and serve him/her with a severe punishment and long, long jail sentence. This evil individual must never be permitted anywhere near ANY creature ever! Such ignorant, despicable and evil cruelty is inexcusable and unacceptable. This poor innocent little kitten of 3 months did not deserve such cruelty and there must be justice for this little lost life. Find this offender and punish him/her most severely.

  9. FOR THESE INHUMANE BREED SOMEONE LEFT MAIN THINGS IN HUMANES EDUCATION.
    WHO COULD IT BE?
     
    ALL OF THAT  INHUMANE  MUD AND RESPONSIBLE  NONPERSONS  ARE ONLY SENSELESS FOR ALL OTHER TERRESTRIALS – FEED THEM  TO ALLIGATORS !
      

  10. To the Police Chief, with due respect Please help find this monster human who did this Barbaric act to the tiniest innocent kitten. You need to know, that some few years ago, in Canada, one monster called Luka Magnotta also did the same way killing little kittens and posting them on web pages. I came forward to tell the people, this is one of the evil human and one day in the near future he will kill the innocent people as well. My saying came true. It took hardly a few months and he killed a man while cutting him in slow motion. These type of BLOOD THIRSTY Evil people are the future CRIMINALS. Please get this monster quickly as possible. He is a Criminal minded who will act violently very soon towards another animal or a vulnerable human being. Please get this monster ASAP if not it will be too late.
