Animal Cruelty: One Cat Dies, Another on Life Support

Posted:

CRISFIELD, Md.- A stray cat was completely drenched in diesel fuel and another was slashed from 'hip to hip' in Crisfield, according to the Humane Society in Somerset County director Jack Mills.

"This is the worse case we've heard of anywhere around here," said Mills, as he described the horrific Sunday morning incident. He believes it happened near the Sunoco gas station and DJ's Car Wash north of the Richardson and Standard Avenue intersection in Crisfield.

It sounds pretty graphic and it is. Mills said the cat that was severely cut is on life support and the other didn't make it. 

"It died last night," said Mills. "It started to suffer. It went blind. It couldn't walk. It was losing its neurological functions and the vet suggested it had suffered enough, and we had to put it down."

Some neighbors remember the cats, and are upset with what has happened.

"That's horrific, that's horrible," repeated Bill Sikora, also of Crisfield. "That means, the individual, whoever they are have no morals whatsoever. They don't care about animals. And if they don't care about animals, they don't care about human life."

Brittany Dennis, lives not too far from where the cats were attacked, and she is also furious.

"I think it is terrible that someone would do something like this to theses cats and dousing them and diesel fuel is actually inhumane," said Dennis.

The community is outraged. Police are on the lookout, and the Humane Society is offering a $300 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction in this case of animal cruelty in Crisfield.
