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:
