Cat found hanging from tree limb

Family’s beloved cat found hanging from tree limb

A Vermont family’s beloved cat was found hanging from a wire on a tree limb in Starr Farm Park in Burlington. The Burlington Police are now reaching out to the public for leads in the heinous case of animal cruelty which claimed the cat’s life.

On Wednesday, the police department utilized its Twitter account to help secure leads in the case. The department posted a photo of the cat, and a description of how he was found:

This cat, Tiki, was found dead, hung from the neck with a wire, at Starr Farm Park. He had a loving family.

The cat who was hanging from the tree limb was discovered by a passerby earlier this month. As reported in the Burlington Free Press, Burlington Police Department Deputy Chief Shawn Burke expressed outrage over the cruel incident stating, “This cat was horrifically killed.”

Anyone with information about this disturbing case is asked to call Officer Ethan Czyzewski at 802-540-2327.

    There’s a special place in hell for the monster(s) who did this. However, I don’t feel the owners are totally innocent. Cats who are allowed to roam have about 1/4 the life expectancy of cats who live indoors. My own cats are indoor-only and it really angers me to see how many pet cats are allowed to roam.
