Cat Hog-Tied, Set on Fire, and Thrown From Window–Demand Justice

Target: Joseph Buser, Montgomery County Prosecutor

Goal: Seek the maximum penalty possible for man who reportedly hog-tied a cat, set her on fire, then tossed her from a car window.

A man allegedly hog-tied all four feet of a live cat named Phoenix, then doused her in gasoline and set her on fire. An M-80 explosive was also attached to the rope that bound her. After being set on fire, the helpless cat was then tossed from a car window and left to suffer in the most horrifying way imaginable. Steve Wright, a witness, was looking out the window when he saw a a burst of fire flying about six feet into the air followed by the sound of a cat screeching in pain. The vehicle sped away, and the cat miraculously began trying to move. Though the cat was rescued, she later died from her injuries.

Noah Riley, a 19-year-old man, was arrested for the disturbing crime, and has been charged with cruelty to an animal and abandoning and neglecting an animal. It’s clear that this crime was spurred by pure evil and malice. Setting a live animal on fire is bad enough, but to also include an explosive indicates that the person who did this wanted to create as much suffering and damage as possible. This is a sadistic act of cruelty inflicted upon a small, helpless, and harmless creature. It’s exactly the kind of animal cruelty that’s common among people who have the tendencies of a mass murderer. It’s up to us to help make sure that this innocent cat is given justice, and to demand that other creatures be protected from the alleged monster who did this.

Please sign this petition to demand that this person, if found guilty, be punished to the fullest extent the law allows, and banned from ever owning animals in the future.


Dear Mr. Buser,

A man allegedly hog-tied a cat named Phoenix, doused her in gasoline, and then set her on fire. The helpless cat was then tossed from a car window where she was found by witnesses.

This disturbing act of sadistic cruelty against a helpless, harmless animal is indicative of a highly dangerous person. We’re calling on you to bring this poor cat justice, and protect the rest of society from a possibly dangerous person by seeking the maximum possible penalty.
