Crucified Cat Nailed to Pole,…Clings to Life
Ironically,the day after Easter, when Christians around the world celebrate the crucifixion and subsequent resurrection of Jesus Christ, some one has made a mockery of the holy day in Illinois,… by cruelly nailing a neighborhood stray cat to a telephone pole,in a faux crucifixion!!!
Authorities in Illinois are looking for the person behind this disturbing case animal abuse, which is so extreme, it has shocked the authorities involved in the rescue.
Some cruel person drove a nail through this poor defenseless cat’s hind paw and left it hanging on a security pole located in rural Henry County, near Geneseo, Ill.The cat is being given a 50/50 chance for survival from the injuries sustained in this attack.(SOURCE)
Those working to save the cat have named him “Dutch” because he was found hanging from a utility pole off of Dutch Road outside Geneseo,Illinois.
The cat does have a microchip implanted inside of him, but unfortunately the owner has been unreachable.
Representatives at a veterinarian’s office in Atkinson, where the cat is being cared for, said Wednesday his eyes are much brighter Wednesday morning and he appears more active and even meowing more.
At this point, the cat doesn’t have much of an appetite, but that is not a big concern right now considering what he has been through. The representatives also said that he has been adopted.(SOURCE)
A website has been set up to receive donations for the tortured cat’s recovery and medical care at: www.Geneseoanimalshelter.com, or you can send checks to: Henry County Humane Society-Geneseo Chapter, P.O. Box 145, Geneseo, Illinois. Make sure to specify on the donation that it is for the ‘abused cat’, and he get it.
Local resident Andrea Bristol found the cat hanging from the pole, and she said …“She thought the cat was dead until she heard a faint wheezing noise”…”It hardly moved at all,” Bristol said. “It was in really rough shape. It looked like it had been beaten up before it got nailed to the pole. It was hardly breathing, hardly moving at all.“(SOURCE)
It is amazing to me that people can be so viscous and cruel to something that can not mount an effective defense….this is simply sadistic, and I hope that someone out there saw something which will lead to this persons arrest, before he can mutilate another animal.
