Feral Cat Heinously Tortured By Unknown Abuser Deserves Justice

Target: Sarah M. Kirkman, District Attorney for Iredell County, North Carolina

Goal: Punish the person who degloved and nearly amputated a feral cat’s tail, leading to his death.

A beloved feral cat had to be euthanized after he was tortured by an unknown assailant. The 8-year-old feline, dubbed Hero by community members, suffered a nearly amputated tail which had been completely degloved along with extensive bruising and severe rectal trauma. The person responsible for this animal’s agony must be brought to justice.

“He was still friendly with the colony keepers, he had such a will to live…what this poor cat had endured but was still so friendly…I broke,” stated Kristi McElfresh of Bella Vita Animal Rescue. She is working with the Mooresville volunteers in trapping the other cats in the feral colony to move them to the safety of the rescue, as Hero is not the first cat to show signs of abuse in the area. Shaved patches of fur, bite marks, and disappearances have wracked Mooresville’s feral community. Even domesticated outdoor cats have presented with unexplainable marks and bruises.

Someone is targeting, torturing, and killing these cats and they must be stopped. The rescue has offered a $5,000 reward to anyone who can help identify the perpetrator. In the meantime, the legal team must be prepared to seek the harshest penalty. Sign below and demand that the district attorney agree to prosecute this case, once a suspect is identified, and seek the harshest penalty possible.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Kirkman,

Hero, an 8-year-old black and brown feral cat, was beloved by the Mooresville community. They looked after and fed him as if he were their own. So, when he returned one September day with a nearly amputated, degloved tail and rectal trauma so severe that it attracted maggots, the volunteers were horrified. A veterinarian quickly determined that Hero would only suffer more if he endured the treatment for his injuries, and he was humanely euthanized. However, he is not the first cat to present with disturbing, unexplained marks on his body and, if his abuser is not punished, he may not be the last.

A reward has been offered by Bella Vita Animal Rescue for the identification of this perpetrator. In the meantime, I demand that you stand prepared to prosecute this case and seek the harshest legal penalty for anyone found guilty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    The abuse, torture & murder of the innocents

    Some heartbreaks can never be unseen, some horrors never unheard – PLEASE GOD

  6. NOTHING WILL BE DONE.Just like nothing was done to poisoned ferals in Brooklyn that made the news. I hear this shit because I did lots of tnr of feral cats and strays.

  7. Jacqui Skill says:

    FIND THIS DANGEROUS SICKO AND KILL HIM OR LOCK HIM AWAY FOR LIFE1 PENALTIES SHOULD BE HARSHER FOR THIS CRIME!

  8. Evan Jane Kriss says:

    FIND THIS MONSTER. He is a danger to society. Make him PAY ALL VET BILLS to restore the animals he abused to full health. Remand him for psychiatric evaluation. He should be charged for several counts of egregious animal abuse and cruelty. BAN him from ever purchasing, owning, caring for or working with ANY animals ever again.

  9. There are too many of these sickos! The laws need to be stronger. It is known that people who torture and kill animals are likely to do the same to humans!

  10. I have no faith in humanity anymore. The world gets crueler by the day
