Find Animal Torturer Who Burned Kitten to Death

Kitten Jessica Peralta

Target: Mike Keating, Deputy Police Chief, Forest Park Police

Goal: Find and punish person responsible for burning a cat so severely that he died of his injuries.

A 3-month-old kitten is dead after succumbing to injuries consistent with being set on fire or tied to a firecracker. The cat, named Sprouts, was originally found in an alley with severe burns all over his body. He was then transported to the Felines & Canines Shelter in Chicago, where he received medical care. The cat’s injures were so severe that he later succumbed to a stroke, likely caused by the extreme physical stress brought on by his injuries.

This act shocked the community of Forest Park, where the cat was found. News of the case quickly spread on social media, prompting rights group In Defense of Animals to offer a reward to anyone with information leading to the conviction of the person responsible. When found, the person responsible could face third degree felony charges punishable by up to five years in prison.

This crime displays a shocking lack of regard for the suffering of animals. Especially considering that people capable of severe animal abuse can often escalate their violence to humans, it is imperative that the person responsible is apprehended immediately. Sign the petition below to ask the Forest Park police to dedicate extra resources to the investigation of any tips in the interest of quickly taking this violent offender off the streets.


Dear  Mr. Keating,

We understand an investigation is currently underway into the death of a 3-month-old kitten named Sprouts. Sprouts was found with serious burns consistent with being lit on fire or tied to a firecracker. Though he was transported to an emergency veterinary clinic, he succumbed to the severity of his injuries, suffering a stroke due to the extreme stress on his body. The death of this cat not only shocked the community of Forest Park, but went viral on social media.

The person who committed this crime is capable of extreme malice toward innocent animals, and worse, could be at risk of escalating his violence toward humans. In order to ensure that both pets and residents of Forest Park are safe, the person responsible must be taken off the streets immediately. We, the undersigned, ask that you dedicate all available resources to apprehending and charging the person responsible for this abhorrent cruelty.

  1. What a sick and twisted individual. Yes, animal torturers grow up often to be human torturers, or even killers.
    I would really like to see a registry where these people’s names and faces are made public for all to see.

  2. Robert J Harnish says:

    Find this person, attach an M-80 to the top of their head, and light the fuse from a safe distance. I’m so sick and tired of signing these positions!


  4. sabita patwardhan says:

    This bastard should be slowly burned to death. Beyond, beyond, beyond evil.

  5. Nancy Raymond says:

    I totally agree with those who want this hunk of sewer slime to get their useless ass burned beyond recognition – an M-80 is definitely in order. Anyone who is so cruel is not fit to be breathing.

  6. jail wont work start him/her on fire and watch them die. eye for an eye

  7. Linda Barnett says:

    Somebody must know the thug who carried out this despicable act! This individual must be severely punished, jailed and served with a lifetime ban from having anything to do with ANY animal. There has to be justice for this innocent little kitten who must have suffered so terribly in the hands of this monster! Such cruelty is inexcusable and any perpetrator who carries out such wicked acts of cruelty must pay!

  9. wanda padgett says:

    Poor kitty. I wish the same could be done to the monster that did this. Find the killer and punish to the full extent of the law. This kind of behavior leads to more violent crimes. He enjoys watching suffering and pain. Imagine how much pleasure he will get when he moves on to humans.
