The BC SPCA is hoping the public can help identify two individuals who dumped an injured cat out of a car window in the 3000 block of Pickford Road in Langford on May 29 around 11:20 a.m.
A woman walking along the road observed two Caucasian men in a grey sedan pull over, dump the cat out of the car window and drive away. The woman was unable to get the license plate.
“The geriatric cat appeared to be dragging her hind legs, and upon inspection, the Good Samaritan discovered that the cat had duct tape wrapped around her stomach and her hind legs,” says BC SPCA senior animal protection officer Erika Paul. “The cat was taken immediately to a local veterinary clinic where she was examined and treated for a large abscess/lesion on her side. She is also getting further treatment to determine the cause of the injury in her back legs.”
If anyone has any information on this case, they are urged to call the BC SPCA animal cruelty hotline at 1-855-622-7722.
