Target: Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Director Nancy Hill
Goal: Arrest and severely punish the “Spokane Cat Killer” responsible for torturing and murdering nearly 30 kittens and cats.
Multiple kittens have been found in and around Spokane who appear to have been maimed, strangled and wrapped in USB cords or tape in a string of cruel and savage attacks. When the first kitten was discovered by a concerned resident who noted its jaw had been ripped open, Spokane County Regional Animal Protection (SCRAPS) appeared to brush off the case as “not a top priority.” Just five weeks after the first case, another kitten was found similarly bound with USB cables and later had to be euthanized due to its injuries. However, these would be only the first tragic examples in what over the next four months would develop into dozens of possibly related cases of tortured and bound cats and kittens, all taped or bound using cables or electrical wire.
Various witnesses, along with animal advocates The Barbi Twins, have taken to talk radio and social media to offer a reward for information leading to the arrest of this cat killer. Yet SCRAPS has made few comments regarding the investigation, and there is some indication that the department may even know who the suspect is but have so far declined in arresting the alleged perpetrator. SCRAPS has stated they believe only the first two cases are related, yet none of the reported cases have resulted in any arrests or charges filed.
It is outrageous that animal protection officials have not done more to seek justice for these innocent and defenseless cats. Please sign this petition to demand that the authorities take this investigation seriously and ensure that the killer is apprehended and severely punished before any other animals are hurt.
Dear Ms. Hill,
I urge you to do all within your power to investigate the cases involving cats and kittens that have been found tortured, strangled and killed in Spokane County. It has been four months since the first kitten was discovered dead, its jaw ripped open and bound tightly using USB cables. Since this first cruel and senseless act, more kittens have been found similarly bound and yet there has been no justice served. Whoever is responsible for these reprehensible acts is free to continue to do so, and it is only a matter of time before another living creature, be it a cat, another animal, or a person, is hurt.
You have a duty to the public of Spokane County to ensure that this investigation is using all of its available resources to find, arrest and punish this dangerous cat killer. Only a violent, sadistic person could be capable of such acts, and they must not be allowed to evade justice. The community of Spokane should not have to fear for the safety of their pets. Please ensure that this suspect is taken off the streets and is punished to fullest extent of the law.
[Your Name Here]
