Cat Zipped Into Backpack And Drowned - Demand Justice (Petition)

AnimalPetitions.org
October 11, 2016


SOUTH AUSTRALIA - A cat drowned after she was zippered into a backpack and thrown into a river.

A group of bystanders tried to save the cat, but were unable to reach her in time.

The RSPCA of South Australia called it "a deliberate act of cruelty."

A female tortoiseshell cat was zippered into a backpack and thrown into the flooded Gawler River.
Her desperate cries could be heard from the shore, but the backpack was too far away to be retrieved in time.
The cat wore a collar but it did not contain identifying information.
She was likely someone's pet.

RSPCA inspectors are currently investigating.
They have asked for the public's help in identifying the person responsible
.
Sign below and demand the maximum penalty in this case.

1. As bad as it is, this was common during the Great Depression. I know it sounds odd for an animal

who could survive eating mice or other natural foods. But because dogs and cats were often more dependent on humans they would starve just as people starved. I have been told this by older folks who have long passed and lived through the worst parts of that time.

2. But sadly,

there are some people who are just sadistic.

I'm now circulating the petition on my Twitter feed.
