Reward Offer for Cat KillerPosted by Megan Backus, ALDF Media Relations Associate on December 4, 2013
ALDF is offering a $2,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and successful prosecution of the perpetrator who threw a cat carrier containing two cats into the San Francisco Bay resulting in their death. Surveillance video of where the attack occurred is available via NBC Bay Area.
If convicted of a felony under California state law the sentence carries a max possible penalty of three years in prison and a $20,000 fine.
“We call on anyone with knowledge of this cruel act to come forward for the safety of other animals. Abusers frequently repeat violent crimes against helpless animals, and often go on to victimize people as well,” said Stephen Wells, executive director of the Animal Legal Defense Fund.
If you have information relating to the identity of the person who killed these cats, please contact the Animal Legal Defense Fund (707-795-2533, x1010).
