PETITION TARGET: Suffolk County Police Department
UPDATE (3/25/2021): Roy Gross, the chief of the department for Suffolk County RSPCA, told Lady Freethinker that unfortunately a suspect couldn’t be tracked to the crime in this case and that the case has since been closed.
Gross said his agency worked with local police to field and follow leads, which all lead to dead ends. Investigators also had the cat’s body scanned for a microchip, which they weren’t able to find.
“We did everything we could,” Gross said. “We followed up on every call, on every lead. Unfortunately we had to close the case. If anyone came forward with new information, we would follow up.”
We want to thank Suffolk County RSPCA for taking all steps possible to find the animal abuser in this case. We also want to thank the more than 27,00 people who signed our petition demanding justice for this sweet kitty, whom we hope is now at peace.
Two brothers wandering along the dock at Long Island’s Corey Beach, NY, came upon a heartbreaking and grisly scene.
They spotted something floating in the water and fished it out, only to discover a poor, discarded dead tabby cat in a metal cage. The door to the cage was locked shut.
Assuming this innocent cat was still alive when tossed into the ocean, they would have been terrified and died a truly traumatic and painful death by drowning.
Furthermore, whoever tortured and murdered this cat is likely capable of further abuse to animals and needs to be stopped.
Sign this petition urging the Suffolk County Police Department to use all of their resources to find who is responsible for this unspeakable act of cruelty, and prosecute them to the full extent of the law.
The Suffolk County SPCA is investigating the incident and asks anyone with information to contact them at 631 382-7722.
