Authorities in Los Angeles are asking the public for help identifying the woman caught on camera cruelly dragging a cat on a leash. A witness took photos of the woman cat “dragger” last Friday on Van Nuys Boulevard and Sherman in Van Nuys. The cat was dragged at least four blocks.
According to KtlaNews, one witness identified as Shifrah, stopped her car and demanded the woman leave the cat alone and stop dragging him:
I was disgusted and I was horrified,” said Shifrah. “The cord is around his neck, and she’s just pulling him. You know he was trying to get away from her.”
Shifrah then called 911 and continued to follow the woman. The situation soon became more disturbing as another witness got out of her car, also telling the cat dragger to release the animal.
“Another lady got out of her car and she walked up to this woman abusing this cat on a leash and she’s telling her to leave the cat alone,” stated Shifrah. “She ripped the blonde wig off the abuser’s hair. So now they’re kind of arguing; you’re seeing fists flying a little bit. The cat is either dropped or thrown to the ground. The mean lady is saying ‘give me my wig, give me my wig,’ and then she tasered the nice lady. I see flashes of light and she’s tasering the lady, and then that’s when the fight kind of ended.”
The suspect ran away leaving the cat. A good Samaritan brought the injured cat to the East Valley Animal Shelter where she has been dubbed Mischief and is currently receiving treatment.
Anyone with information is asked to call Los Angeles Department of Animal Services at 888-452-7381. Help Mischief find justice. Please share this story; someone knows this woman’s identity.
