Last week, a family in Taylor, Michigan, made a gruesome discovery: Their beloved rescued cat, Zsa Zsa Maroney, had been tortured, choked, mutilated, and killed. Her legs had been bound together with string, and her body was found tied to a tree limb. Taylor police are investigating the incident but have yet to make any arrests, so PETA is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the crime.

We are also sending out urgent advisories to news media to implore everyone to keep their cats safe indoors. In addition to the chance of being hurt by a cruel person, cats who roam outdoors risk contracting communicable diseases; getting lost, injured, or hit by an automobile; or being snatched up by “bunchers”—people who steal dogs and cats and sell them for use in experiments.
Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
