In Farmingville, New York, a veteran’s 13-year-old cat was tortured and killed according to the Suffolk County SPCA. A $2,000 reward has been offered for the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the “heinous act of animal cruelty.”
On November 2, the body of Uma had been left at her owner’s home; the senior cat had been tortured, mutilated and killed. According to the Suffolk County SPCA’s Facebook page, the beloved cat, who never strayed from home, had been disemboweled and her body placed on top of a cat shelter in the family’s yard. Her owner is a decorated war veteran, and the family is devastated, reported the Long Island News.
A necropsy had been ordered to determine the exact cause of death. On Saturday, SPCA agents and volunteers canvassed the area where Uma was found hoping to uncover new information. Please share and call 631-382-7722 with any information. Help Uma find justice.
