Justice for Cat Hung from a Tree and Left for Dead

Target: Eric S. Miller, U.S. Attorney for Vermont

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the person who hung a cat from a tree and left him for dead.

A cat died after he was hung from a tree in a city park. The person responsible is still at large. Demand justice for this innocent cat.

A Burlington pedestrian found Tiki, a beloved family cat, hanging by his neck from a tree limb. He had already died from his injuries. Chief Brandon del Pozo of the Burlington police wrote on Facebook, “There are people in our city who know who did this depraved thing. The police need to know too, as does his loving family.”

The Burlington police have issued a $500 reward for any information in this case. They are hoping to locate a suspect soon. Sign below to demand the maximum penalty for those responsible.


Dear U.S. Attorney Miller,

A cat was found hanging from a tree, a wire tightly strapped around his neck. He died from his injuries. We demand justice for this innocent cat.

Burlington Police Department Deputy Chief Shawn Burke stated, “This cat was horrifically killed.” It is unreported how long Tiki, the cat, was hanging. He was dead when a local pedestrian found him.

The person responsible could face a felony charge of aggravated cruelty to animals and serve a potential prison sentence of up to three years. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

  1. Find him and prosecute! This person is ill. Who is to say what he can be doing to children.

  2. Janet Johnston says:

    I’m utterly appalled and sickened by the horrific cruelty meted out to this beautiful little family cat! I cannot imagine how Tigi’s poor family must feel, my heart goes out to them! There’s a very wicked sadistic demon out there and I truly pray that he is caught and proper justice comes his way! I know what I would like to do to this bastard!!! What is going on in society when this kind of evil is unleashed? It beggars belief!!

  3. Dirty evil rotton wicked filthy peice of shit …… Hope youve gone to kinder place little girl x

  4. Barbara Terrill says:

    What a horrible thing to do!!!!! Once they find out who did this, I hope they put them behind bars for a very long time, have to do community service for life and pay a pretty substantial fee.

  5. We have to get politician, to appreciate the need for new and more aggressive laws when it comes to animal cruelty.

    the minimum sentence such as this should be six years and five years probation, and no animal contact.

  6. Would it not be the greatest day on planet earth if all
    of the animal abusers, slaughterhouse workers, canned hunters, poachers, etc… be rounded up like the heathens they are and shipped off to a deserted island and left to fend for themselves and lets also include those who would abuse infants and children??????

  7. Lisa Zarafonetis says:

    Hope the bastard rots in hell for eternity ❗️?
    Signed & Shared ?

  8. Lynne Cameron says:

    What a sick moron this must be, to do a thing like that. The world would be a better place without people that abuse, torture or kill innocent defenceless animals. Lock them up and throw away the key.

  9. Vile and soulless human beings that roam the earth. Absolutely disturbing.

  10. Lisbeth Alvarado Sanchez says:

    I hope this monster or monsters rot in hell for eternity. Nobody has the right to abuse, torture or kill an animal. This is simply sickening and barbaric. Rest in Peace beautiful Tiki.

  11. I agree with Stewart Parks comment – ship them all off to a remote island to survive on their own. Let them kill one another. I detest using taxpayer monies to suppor them in prison if they even get any jail time! they need to be removed from society – permanently.
    Rest in Peace sweet Tiki – may you be restored to wholeness across the Rainbow Bridge and see your family again one day.

  12. wanda padgett says:

    Please find who did this and punish to the full extent of the law. Frankly I wish an eye for an eye could be the punishment. What so many do not get, is this kind of behavior many times leads to further violence. Look at the history of serial killers. Most have animal torture, abuse and killings in their history. That poor innocent cat. I wish whoever did this will have karma catch up to them!

  13. U.S. Attorney Miller: PLEASE, no more slaps on the wrist. Give this animal abuser and killer the maximum penalty. A few months in jail where animals lovers will take care of him… is a great sentence.

  14. The same should be done to whoever carried out this atrocious act !!! Europe /Malta

  15. Lilian Caughlin says:

    Whoever did this needs to be eliminated from society. Every cretin needs to be dealt with like they dowith the Philippine drug dealers. Time to re adjust.

  16. Find this POS or they will & probably already have repeated their SADISTIC, BARBARIC CRIMES, & they will NOT Stop with ANIMALS! THIS IS A PROVEN FACT!! It could be YOUR CHILD or any BEING who cannot Defend, Protect or SPEAK UP OR OUT..For THEMSELVES..FIND THEM & Prosecute them, beyond what is capable by the lack of LAWS!

  17. It’s way past time to update the penalty for cruelty to animals. Let’s all make this perfectly clear to our elected officials

  18. Track and kill, these subjects do not deserve to live
    So much sick in the head you have to exterminate

  19. Crimes against animals MUST be taken seriously — there are way too many idiot-monsters loose in our world — Who do these imbeciles think they are !! — we MUST round them up & throw these insane criminals into prison — mete out severe punishments OR whatever it takes to ensure they do NOT repeat their demented crimes — LENGTHY prison terms — along with slapping them with hefty fines — we want NO repeats of abuse to and killings of animals, EVER !
