Police in Prescott, Arizona, have opened an animal cruelty investigation following the discovery of two dead kittens on the campus of an elementary school. The Prescott Police issued a release about the cruelty case on social media:

The Prescott Police Department is investigating a felony animal cruelty case that occurred during the early morning hours of July 26, 2021 on the campus of Taylor Hicks Elementary School, 1845 Campbell Avenue.A Prescott Animal Control Supervisor responded later that morning and discovered two kittens were deceased. Both kittens were located in the parking lot of the baseball fields and appeared to have sustained blunt force trauma.

According to the news release, two other kittens, alive, but malnourished and dehydrated, were also discovered. The surviving kittens were taken to an animal hospital for treatment.

The authorities have detailed what is known about the people who are believed to be responsible for the kittens’ death:

Through investigation, it was learned that three, possibly four males were making noise in the parking lot just adjacent to the baseball fields on the north end of the campus, just after midnight. Video surveillance was obtained from the school. While the video still images are of poor quality, it appears the suspects are male juveniles.


Two of the suspects appear to be wearing white or light-colored Nike athletic shoes. Another male subject appears to be wearing dark-colored low-cut Nike shoes. It is believed the juveniles saw the cameras while climbing on the roof of the school and attempted to conceal their faces.
