A small black cat was tortured in Dearborn, Michigan this week, and now a $5,000 reward is out for anyone with information that leads authorities to the person responsible.
The cat’s name is Stallion. The small black animal was found with a rope tied extremely tight around it’s neck multiple times, and the rope was tied on the other end to a bush outside the Ford Motor company headquarters.
Employees say they had heard the cat crying for days, but nobody could track it down until finally they found it tangled in the bushes. The cat was saved, but at the time it was in seriously bad condition. The rope was so tightly bound to the cat’s neck that it had to be surgically removed.
According to the vets who cared for Stallion, the rope had been tied around the cat’s neck for weeks. It caused the skin to open and an open wound was formed.
The cats skin started growing over the rope and became part of the animal’s body. This caused even more damage to the cat.
Because the rope caused the cat’s skin to open, flies got into the wound and laid eggs, which in turn caused maggots to form inside the wound.
Vets say it will take weeks for the cat to recover from its injuries. Meanwhile, Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest that leads to prosecution of the person responsible. After the story aired on local TV, anonymous donors added to that reward to make it $5,000.
The story of Stallion’s abuse has caught fire on social media, with some people pointing out that just last week in Denmark, a migrant camp made headlines when children where caught mutilating kittens. According to reports, the kids were cutting open the kittens and exposing their insides. Other reports note the children were kicking the cats like a soccer balls, and some cats had their heads decapitated.
One mention on social media eluded to the possibility of the Denmark story catching wind in Dearborn.
