Second tortured cat found in Baltimore

The Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter is seeking the public’s help in an investigation into the death of a tortured and executed cat whose remains were brought to BARCS this morning by Baltimore City Animal Control.

The cat’s body was found tied to a fence in the 3700 block of Lewiston Avenue in Baltimore. According to Debra Rahl of BARCS, it was wrapped with a blue cord and had a heavy chain around its neck that was attached to a utility pole.

The cat’s head was placed on a “96 shot Phantom Fireball Display.”

The hair on the cat’s head was completely singed off, and it had multiple contusions and bruises to its body. Its right front leg was broken above the elbow and it had a 6 centimeter wound in its left shoulder area. There was an odor of a gunpowder type substance on the body.

This is the second cat  found tortured and killed in the area  in the past two weeks , BARCS said. The first cat was also found with a blue cord around its neck.

This has made me physically ill. Someone is walking around in our city who could do such a thing. And they won’t stop at this.

Animal abuse is a recognized sign of a mental disorder that often leads to criminal violence against people too. When will the authorities recognize this for what it is and crack down on these dangerous psychopaths? Kids or not – they need to be caught and punished.

Baltimore elected officials don’t care about animals or animal abuse. They’d rather wait until this person kills another human and then still do nothing about it. I’m just fed up and disgusted with everything now.

Unfortunately, the officials who police these problems do not have the budget crack down on these sickos, which is one of the many reasons why this blog is the only place to inform me of this terrible crime.
