Someone threw kittens out of moving car during rush hour traffic

Terrible scene during the rush hour

A terrible scene played out in front of horrified drivers in Charleston, South Carolina, on Friday morning. According to the Charleston Animal Society, someone was throwing kittens out of a car that was traveling on Rivers Avenue during the rush hour.

Tragic outcome

Cars tried to swerve around the kittens which had been tossed onto the roadway, but a witness saw one hit and killed. The animal welfare society stated:

A woman driving in traffic saw cars swerving and that’s when she saw a kitten in the middle of the road. As she looked ahead, she saw kittens being thrown into traffic from the windows of a vehicle ahead of her. The first kitten she saw was run over and killed.

The fate of the other kittens

A good Samaritan was able to pick up one of the kittens and transport the body to the Charleston Animal Society. The fate of the other kittens is unknown. The horrible situation has been reported to the local animal control agency.

Charleston Animal Society Senior Director of Anti-Cruelty & Outreach Aldwin Roman stated:

“We are in touch with North Charleston Animal Control about this case and they are investigating. This is a terrible case of cruelty and we want to catch whoever is responsible.”

Description of the vehicle

According to a witness, the kittens were being throw from a gold Dodge Stratus. The witness believes that there were multiple people inside of the vehicle.

Reward offered

Charleston Animal Society is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and felony conviction of those involved. “Preventing animal cruelty wherever it exists is at the core of our mission,” said Charleston Animal Society CEO Joe Elmore. “We want these people caught and prosecuted. Those kittens did not deserve this kind of horrific treatment.”

    If only someone could get the license plate number. I think this kind of thing happens so quickly and it’s so shocking that good people just want to get the animal or animals to safety. How heartless a monster to do this. Please send this story to the governor and to the senators. The more we show them what is going on, perhaps it will give them a wake up cal as to what is really happening in regards to animal cruelty.

    There can’t be too many gold Dodge Stratus cars in Charleston. Hope they find the POS who threw the kittens out.

    How are people raised to ever do such vile things as this? What were they like as children and it is hard to believe they not only allowed the kittens to be killed, but what they did could have caused a serious car crash.
