Suspects Sought for Torture of Kitten
COLUMBIA - CrimeStoppers of Greater Columbia is offering a reward for information leading to an arrest of the suspect(s) who de-clawed a three-month old kitten and tossed it into a fire last Wednesday, June 19th, in Green Hills Trailer Park on Highway VV north of Columbia.
Sheriff's deputies and Animal Control Officers responded to the scene and found the badly injured kitten. The kitten was taken to the University of Missouri Veterinary Clinic where it had to be euthanized.
Det. Tom O'Sullivan is the Sheriff helping lead the investigation and is doing all he can to find the suspect.
"It's a pretty hideous thing to do to a defenseless animal," O'Sullivan said. "So CrimeStoppers of Greater Columbia is offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest in this case."
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact CrimeStoppers at 875-TIPS or call 9-1-1. All calls are held in strict confidence and you don't have to give your name to collect a reward.
