Cat Choked With Wire and Bludgeoned Deserves Justice


Target: Nicole Lawrence, Humane Society Police Officer, York County SPCA

Goal: Seek maximum possible punishment against person who tied a wire around a cat’s neck and bludgeoned it to death.

A cat was recently found in the cold after someone twisted a wire tightly around its neck and left it for dead. The calico cat, named Faith by rescue workers, had several lacerations on its head when it was brought to Heavenly Paws Animal Shelter in York County, Pennsylvania for veterinary attention. Faith’s injuries were treated, and a round of antibiotics started before she was allowed to return home with a foster care volunteer.

Over the course of only a few hours, Faith’s condition deteriorated significantly. She began to pace in circles and bump into furniture, showing signs of severe brain trauma. By the time a veterinarian was able to see her, the cat was pronounced brain dead and had to be euthanized.

A necropsy revealed that the cat had a fractured skull and three distinct areas of blunt force trauma. Veterinarians suspect that the blows were caused by a hammer, and that the wire was used to hold the cat in place while someone bludgeoned it. Aside from the obvious signs of abuse, the cat was in otherwise good health, suggesting to investigators that it was someone’s pet.

This crime demonstrates extreme cruelty and is a shock to the entire community of Hanover. In order to ensure that Faith receives justice, it is important that the person responsible is punished to the fullest extent of the law. Sign the petition below to demand a harsh punishment for the person responsible, which will help deter similar crimes in the future.


Dear Officer Lawrence,

A calico cat named Faith was recently found in the cold with a wire wound tightly around its neck. After receiving veterinary care for its wounds, Faith’s health deteriorated quickly due to brain injuries, and she was put down the next day. A necropsy found that the cat suffered blunt force trauma as well as a skull fracture, likely due to blows to the head from a hammer.

This shocking crime shows extreme cruelty toward animals and should be punished to the full extent of the law. We, the undersigned, ask that you work to bring justice to this cat by finding the person responsible and seeking out the harshest possible punishments against them.

    This is too much, another piece of garbage who should be eradicated is still out there. Cowardly and insane. Who needs them they take up space and air.JUSTICE is a long time coming and to me always to freaking late.Get a judge in every state to oversee this and do SOMETHING.. I am so fed up with scummy cowards.

    I will definitely sign but wish I could change all the “it” and its” to “she” and “hers”. Faith is a living being not an object. I know we all know that which is why we are fighting for her but we should be giving her the respect she deserves. Thank you.

    My heart aches for all the innocent creatures in the Animal Kingdom who fall victim to torture and murder at the hands of humans. The asshole who did this will never be found, but he/she sure needs to be removed from the gene pool…

      I agree. Would be scary to think that this murdering idiot can still be walking the streets amongst us all.
