COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A $1,200 reward is being offered for anyone with information that can lead to charges in a heinous animal cruelty case.

On May 2, a caller reported seeing a person in a silver or gold Ford Escape dangling a kitten out a window before tossing the animal towards the road. The incident was reported in the northbound lanes near the Garden of the Gods exit (146), and responding officers found a deceased black cat in the area.

The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region’s Animal Law Enforcement division has been investigating the case. An HSPPR spokesperson said Thursday that the humane society has received a few calls since the incident was first publicized.

“Thanks to donations from a few generous animal lovers, HSPPR is now offering a $1,200 reward for information that leads to a successful charge against the individual(s) responsible,” she said.

Those involved could be charged with cruelty to animals.

If you know something that can help bring this young cat justice, call 719-302-8798.

Cruelty to animals is a crime. HSPPR implores anyone with an animal they no longer want or can care for to surrender the pet to the humane society. Click here for more information.
