Target: Maureen Shelton, District Attorney for Wichita County, Texas
Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the person who swung a cat around by its tail and slammed it into the ground, ripping its tail off.
A cat was swung around by its tail and slammed into the ground. The cat lost its tail and part of its spine during the attack. Demand justice for this innocent cat.
“Those animals didn’t deserve that…. This person is being cruel to these animals to the extent that it just turns your stomach,” stated James Lehman of Iowa Park. He and his girlfriend found the orange tabby cat with a bloodied backside while at work. Veterinarian reports showed that the cat’s tail and three of its back vertebrae had been ripped off. It suffered considerably and could have died.
Lehman and his girlfriend are paying for the cat’s veterinary care. They intend on keeping the cat once it recovers. The person who abused this cat is still at large. Sign below and demand a full investigation into this cruelty and the maximum penalty for the person convicted in this case.
Dear District Attorney Shelton,
A 5-month-old cat was found bloody and near death. Its tail had been ripped from its body in a horrific attack. We demand justice for this innocent cat.
By the time James Lehman found the cat, it was covered in blood and likely in tremendous pain. Veterinarians believe that the cat’s tail and part of its spine were ripped off when it was swung around by its tail. It has endured surgery and multiple procedures to save its life, but it has a long way to go before it fully recovers from this attack.
As long as this person is still at large, animals will continue to be in danger. We demand a full investigation into this case and the maximum penalty for the person convicted of this abuse.
