The reward is growing for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is behind a terrible act of cruelty in Brooklyn, New York, which left a beloved neighborhood cat dead. The cat, named Tuxedo, lived in a feral cat colony at NYCHA’s Breukelen Houses and he died after a couple encouraged their two pit bulls to attack.
Latonya Walker, who has been feeding the cats for a decade, is deeply vested in this feral colony, and she was devastated when Tuxedo was viciously killed. In an effort to find his killers, she offered up a $200 reward. Animal Victory has since taken over the reward offering, and as of Friday, that reward grew to $1,000. The online petition platform has garnered over 18,000 signatures so far (click here to sign) and the support to find Tuxedo’s killers continues to grow.
A man who bore witness to the sadistic attack has stated that Tuxedo briefly escaped the two dogs by running up a tree, but the couple used a stick to prod him out, and the dogs tore the hapless cat apart.
The authorities are aware of the incident and an investigation is underway. If you are interested in signing the petition, please click here.
