HSU Adds $5,000 Reward For Informaiton Concerning Kitten Buried In Concrete
The Humane Society of Utah is adding $5,000 to the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for burying a live kitten in a 7 foot tall vertical pipe filled with wet cement at a construction site in the Utah border community of Colorado City, Arizona.
“It is impossible to fathom how a human being could do something like this to a defenseless kitten,” says HSU Executive Director Gene Baierschmidt. “Even though this crime occurred just outside the state of Utah, itʼs an act so close to home, and so cruel and callous, the Humane Society of Utah is compelled to do everything it can to help seek justice.”
By the time the trapped kitten was discovered, it had sunk so deeply into the wet cement that only itʼs face was exposed. Despite the quick action taken to rescue the kitten and nurse it back to health it died just a few days after the incident due to massive injuries.
The Humane Society of Utah is committed to the elimination of fear, pain and suffering for all animals and hopes that the additional $5,000 reward will convince anyone with knowledge about this case to contact Colorado City authorities (435-874-2240) and provide information leading to an arrest and conviction of those responsible.
