$5,000 reward offered in killing of cat in South Seattle

The Humane Society is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who killed a cat found in South Seattle on Saturday.

The cat was found hanging on a fence in the 4200 block of South Bateman Street, according to the Seattle Animal Shelter. A necropsy confirmed that the cat had struggled before it died.

Seattle Animal Shelter staff were able to locate and notify the cat’s owners.

“Someone knows who did this,” said Seattle Animal Shelter Manager of Field Services Ann Graves. “We need the help of the community to find the person responsible for this disturbing and brutal act of violence.”

First-degree animal cruelty is a Class C felony punishable by five years in prison, a $10,000 fine or both.

Anyone with information is asked to call Graves at 206-386-4288 and refer to case number 14-16660.
