In Sacramento, California, area residents are outraged after a man was caught on a security camera dragging a cat on its back down a sidewalk on Sunday morning.
According to Fox News, neighbors are hoping someone recognizes the man in hopes the cat can be rescued from the apparent abuse. The video was shared on the NextDoor app.
“He probably dragged the cat 70-80 feet down the sidewalk,” the witness stated. What was most disconcerting, for me, was at the end, the cat was on its back and hadn’t moved to other than to relieve the collar pressure around the neck.”
The video showed a man walking a leashed cat near the W-3 Freeway and 21st Street. At that point, the cat collapsed, but the man kept going and dragged the cat down the sidewalk.
Authorities at the Front Street Animal Shelter confirms a report has been filed and an investigation will begin.
