Waterbury, Connecticut. – PETA is offering rewards up to $ 5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of brutality charges against those responsible for allegedly sealing a black and white cat and her four newborn kittens in a Tupperware container and dumping them on the side of the road, resulting in one kitten death.
The Good Samaritan discovered the unconscious cats late Saturday night somewhere near Waterbury and reported it to Dan Cosgrove’s animal shelter, who took them to the vet for emergency treatment. The mother cat, who appears to be about 1 year old, initially appeared blind due to oxygen deprivation, but vision has returned and she and her three surviving kittens recover at the shelter.
“If someone hadn’t found these cats in time, all five members of this family would have suffocated in a plastic container,” says PETA vice president Colleen O’Brien. “PETA urges anyone who recognizes these cats to come forward immediately so that whoever left them to die on the side of the road can be held accountable.”
Anyone with information on this case is advised to call Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter at 203-315-4125.
