Police are looking for the man who they believe threw some kind of a chemical, believed to be bleach, at two cats in a pet store in Pennsylvania.
Police and humane officers say that the suspect poured the chemical on a pair of cats at a PetSmart store in Dickson City, Pennsylvania. The felines were up for adoption and placed inside a cage at the time of the attack.
Humane officers say that the cats, Shyla and Rossi suffered greatly and didn’t deserve it. The two animals suffered from burns and their eyes were nearly swollen shut. (Scroll down for the video.)
1. A man poured a chemical, believed to be bleach, on a pair of cats at a PetSmart store in Dickson City, Pennsylvania.
Humane Society officer Sandy Scala said:
She has chemical burns on her neck and the side of her face, also the eyes. When this happened, neither one of the cats could open up their eyes, and it’s just, it’s just horrific.
Really, I mean you just wonder where the human race is going.
Police say that a man was seen antagonizing the animals before a customer noticed that the cats were injured.
2. Cats found bleached inside a cage at a PetSmart — an ABC 7 report.
Store employee Kristen Anderson said:
They were catty corner to each other. One cage had two cats in it, only one had been attacked, so it’s kind of odd that anyone would.
They would have to seek out this kind of harm. It wasn’t an accident.
Humane officers are asking anyone with information about the incident to come forward. Scala said:
I want to find out who did this, we all do, this is just absurd. I mean, there are some sick twisted individuals out there and that’s putting it nicely and I hope karma really does come around and nail them.
Both cats were kept at an emergency vet center overnight, but were expected to recover.
Staff from Griffin Pond Animal Shelter say the felines up for adoption at PetSmart will now probably be put behind glass so people can’t get to them.
