No-one probably cares, but some people make me sick. How f'ed up in the head do you need to be to do this?
Reward offered to catch cat skinner
August 09, 2007 04:17pm
A $1000 reward is being offered to help find the person who tried to skin a cat alive on the Gold Coast.
RSPCA Gold Coast inspector Kyle Chaplin said the cat was targeted last month and its owner today posted the reward after investigations had stalled.
The 14-year-old pet was found by its owner on July 7 on Brighton Street, Biggera Waters after an overnight attack.
It has since recovered after veterinary treatment.
"The horrified owner called the RSPCA and then letter-dropped the area begging anyone who had any information to come forward,'' Mr Chaplin said.
"So far there has been no response.''
He said he hoped the reward would encourage someone to come forward.
The reward will be paid once someone is charged over the attack.
Maximum penalties for animal cruelty are $75,000 or two years' imprisonment.
Information can be given to the RSPCA's cruelty complaint hotline on 1300 852 188.
