WTF…CAT TRAUMATIZED BY SICK CRUELTY…WHY???
Just when you think you have seen the worst animal cruelty cases, another one comes out of the woodwork even sicker.
On Thursday morning, a shelter worker at the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control discovered a box outside of the Baldwin Park parking lot. When he opened the box, it was a cat whose mouth, nose, and paws had been tied with red duct tape.
According to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the shelter worker, Abraham Contreras discovered the cat and brought the two-year-old male domestic short hair cat into the shelter where the duct tape was removed.
The cat was gasping for breath, and although quite scared and timid, he is now making progress in his rehabilitation.
Named Amigo by his rescuers, the lucky cat will be placed in a foster home until he is ready for adoption.
DACC Director Marcia Mayeda stated:
“I can’t imagine why someone would do this to a cat. Animal cruelty is heartbreaking, intolerable and usually a precursor to human violence.“
