Dallas, Texas – On the morning of January 26, 2022, three juvenile males committed a heinous act of animal cruelty that left a young cat with severe injuries. According to the Dallas Police Department, the boys, whose identities are not yet known, were observed stomping on a plastic bag that held a year-old calico cat.
A witness reported the disturbing incident to the police and now the authorities are trying to locate the three males who are responsible for hurting the feline. According to the witness description, the youths were wearing what appeared to be a school uniform. The authorities said that all three individuals had on white polo shirts and khaki pants.
On January 28, the Dallas Police Department reached out to the public for help solving the case:
Dallas Police Department is requesting any witnesses that have any further information on the suspects or the offense to please contact DPD Crime Stoppers 1(877)373-TIPS or Detective H. Tamez, #8518, Animal Cruelty Unit at 214-671-0115. Please reference case number 015618-2022.
Some people commenting on the Facebook post have referenced a private school near the place where the cat was attacked.
And most expressed dismay for the violence of the crime, and hope that those responsible will be identified and held accountable for their despicable actions.
The cat subjected to this abuse suffered a broken jaw, head injuries, and other bodily injuries; she is being cared for by the SPCA of Texas.
Animal Victory wants to bring awareness to this crime, with the hope that these three males will be identified, arrested, and charged. When that happens, we will be presenting this petition, along with your signatures and comments, to court officials along with our demand to have them held accountable for their abhorrent behavior.
We the undersigned demand that the suspects responsible for violently attacking and injuring this innocent cat receive the maximum punishment allowable by law.
Individuals are presumed innocent until being found guilty in a court of law. Animal Victory relies upon the authorities and the court system to determine guilt or innocence.
