Stand Up for Cat Apparently Shot With Long-Barreled Gun

Target: Ellen Rosenblum, Attorney General of Oregon

Goal: Hold those accused of the cruel shooting of Vortex accountable.

An alarming incident has shattered the peace of a Salem neighborhood, involving the alleged brutal killing of a beloved family cat named Vortex. Home surveillance appears to show a distressing scene where a group of individuals noticed Vortex, and shortly after one shot her with a long-barreled gun. It appears this shocking event not only robbed a family of their pet but also highlights a severe lack of respect for life.

Further details of the incident reveal more about the cruelty involved. After the initial shot, surveillance footage appears to show the cat in distress, flopping on the ground, while around five individuals encircled her, recording the agony as entertainment. Moments later, the same perpetrator seemingly took a second, point-blank shot, compounding the brutality of the act. The group then allegedly moved the lifeless body of Vortex to a neighbor’s yard, demonstrating a disturbing level of premeditation and disregard for the emotional impact on the pet’s family.

The callous nature of this act and the alleged behavior of those involved necessitate a firm legal response. We must ensure that such cruelty is met with justice and that those allegedly responsible are held accountable. Demand that the Salem police take swift and decisive action to investigate and prosecute the individuals involved in this heart-wrenching incident.


Dear Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum,

We, the undersigned, are deeply disturbed by the alleged actions that led to the cruel death of a family cat named Vortex in Salem, as reportedly captured on home surveillance. This incident seemingly not only took a beloved pet from her family but also displayed a horrifying disrespect for life and the law. According to reports, a group of individuals was filmed interacting with Vortex before one of them allegedly shot her with what appeared to be a long-barreled gun. The footage reportedly shows further torment of the cat, with individuals recording her distress on their phones, followed by a second, point-blank shot.

The actions apparently depicted in the surveillance footage are shocking and unacceptable. They reportedly show a group of young people treating a living being’s suffering as entertainment and then attempting to conceal their atrocious act. This incident has not only caused irreversible harm to a family but has also raised serious concerns about public safety and animal welfare in our community.

We urge you to ensure a thorough investigation and to hold those allegedly responsible for this heinous act accountable. It is crucial that justice be served, not only to honor Vortex’s memory but also to send a clear message that such acts of cruelty will not be tolerated. We demand that all efforts be made to prosecute those involved to the full extent of the law.

  1. Much as id love these articles to die horribly, i know they will barely get told off. I just hope both Vortex owners and the neighbour who had the poor little souls body thrown into their yard sue these fuckers for every penny they will ever have. Emotional distress carries compensation of hundreds of thousands of dollars if they get a good lawyer and judges grasp money very readily, whereas an animals torture is a shrug of the shoulders to too many of them. At least poverty will be some punishment to these POS

    This is what the world is coming to! Youngsters who are always indulged and have internet! When I was young, NO internet and almost NO young person would be so cruel, and it would be unthinkable to deliberately harm an animal. Now, it seems most young people are evil, cruel monsters, much like the violent monsters they are always watching online. Parents are lazy and far too indulgent of their wicked spawn. If you love your cat, for goodness sake PLEASE DO NOT LET THEM ROAM OUTDOORS! Because they become victims of nasty, cruel and evil young people like this lot, and it happens so very often.

  3. Shoot these kids slowly ’til they die and then do the same to the parents who breed evil bastards like this.

  4. social media and the companies who run them are just as guilty. they are supposed to have all this screening that prevents acts of cruelty to be put up and watched. yet there is tons of that garbage on there. sure they consider it revenue. title 230 needs to be revoked removing the protections these rich elitist scumbags have and hold them accountable and open to lawsuits just like any other publisher. that will fix their garbage real quick.

    Every one of the sick perpetrators need to be shot in the knees, tied to stakes in the deep woods and let the “animals” mete out justice
