A woman in Compton, California, is speaking out after kittens in her neighborhood were captured with a cruel glue trap and left to die in the heat. As reported by Fox 11 News, Pamela Crawford claims her neighbor is behind the killings, and that last week, one of the dying kittens was placed on her garbage can and left to die in the scorching heat.
She thinks that it will happen again, telling the news agency:
“She said she put the traps out with tuna on them.” Adding, “She said she’s going to kill more cats.”
The neighbor accused of killing the kittens denies any wrong-doing. Animal control has opened an investigation into the disturbing situation. According to social media posts one kitten died in the trap after it was placed on the garbage, another was taken to animal control and put down, and the mother cat is still in the area. People aware of what happened are worried about the cat’s safety.
