Cat Tortured to Death With Hot Glue Deserves Justice

Target: Troy Rawlings, Davis County, Utah Attorney

Goal: Find and seek the maximum punishment for the person responsible for severely beating a cat and sealing its eyes shut with hot glue.

In a heartbreaking case of senseless cruelty, a 6-year-old cat in Clearfield, Utah named Sage returned home to his family beaten almost beyond recognition, with his eyes sealed shut with hot glue. He had been missing for several days, and what had happened during that time is unthinkable. All of Sage’s toes were broken and his ribs snapped. He had been shaved and then burned with hot glue, which was also used on his eyes and injected into his anus and genitalia. It is remarkable that Sage was somehow able to limp home, barely able to walk or even meow in spite of the great pain he must have endured. Despite veterinary intervention, the gray-and-white cat succumbed to his many injuries a day later.

Members of the Humane Society of Northern Utah and veterinarians at the Salt Lake City animal clinic where Sage was treated both stated that the case was one of the worst cases of abuse they had ever seen. As word spread of the poor cat’s condition, donations came pouring in from animal lovers far and wide. In the wake of Sage’s death, the Humane Society is now pledging to use the collected donations, totaling over $22,000, as a reward to help catch the sick individual responsible for this act of cruelty.

We must demand that local law enforcement does all that it can to ensure that this cat torturer is brought to justice. Sage suffered abuses that no creature should have to endure. Sign this petition to demand that whoever is responsible is caught and is punished to the maximum extent of the law for this heinous act.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Rawlings,

The recent case of a cat in Clearfield who was tortured to death is deeply upsetting. Sage was a much-loved family pet who somehow ended up in the hands of a heartless individual who beat him so severely that his ribs were snapped and his paws crushed. The animal had been shaved and burned over much of his body with hot glue, with his eyes and anus sealed shut. Salt Lake City veterinarians attested that it was the worst case of abuse that they had seen, and in spite of their best efforts, this cat died as a result of the horrific injuries he had sustained.

Whoever was responsible for this savage attack must be found as soon as possible before more animals can be harmed. No animal in Davis County, or anywhere, should have to suffer a fate as terrible as poor Sage. I am urging you to do all in your power to see that they are caught and that the maximum penalty is sought for this sickening act of abuse.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    • Bravo!!! I have never heard it put any better. I feel that these so called law makers,are just as guilty as these creatures, who commit these barbaric crimes. Lawmakers start passing severe jail time for these creatures starting now.

      • David Lavery says:

        I have been saying for a long time now that people in Authority who have the power to punish abusers but do nothing or very little are as guilty of abuse themselves. These people are part of the problem and need to be shamed for aiding animal abuse.

    • David Lavery says:

      Your exactly right but nothing will be done unless he begins torturing people instead. The Law is too soft.

  2. Darlene Avery says:

    Start passing and enforcing stronger animal abuse laws, as we see in this depraved case, just how much we need them. This despicable subhuman monster must be caught and put away for good. What this poor, innocent kitty went through is beyond horrific and cruel. This vile abuser is a danger to all society.

  3. E . Meeester says:

    could the abuser have pushed the cat through the cat door.
    THe cat had broken paws and was blinded with glue. I hope they will find the abuser

  4. Susan Duplantis says:

    First off, keep your baby inside, and build him a cat run. People are sick. If the person is found that did this, I say do the same to then except use hot tar on them instead of glue and acid in their eyes, place in a fire ant pil, then shove a 2×6 up their ass and stake them out in a gator to be eaten alive. That would cure the bastard of animal abuse. This way no jail or prison time,saving taxpayers dollars and rid society of this low life. They are potential serial killers and child abusers.

  5. Judith Weber says:

    This person needs to be prosecuted severely. This person needs to be embarrassed in the media including television radio newspapers and magazines. This personn needs to be on an international list of animal abusers and publicized to the nth degree. This person is a pariah too civilized communities. How can anybody question the severity of punishment and embarrassment that this woman deserves. She should never be allowed to be by pets. This person, is in a abuser just like a rapist, a pedophile, a child molester, or a perpetrator of domestic violence. I believe people of this type need to be in police stations and public buildings as a detriment to society in embarrassed for what they did.
    I realize that Michael Vic a prison sentence for his time. Very small punishment for the cruelty that this disgusting person inflicted. He should never have any recognition, just the same as this person should never get by and be totally embarrassed.
    Anything less shows a form of mental retardation in our own government in the government of your county.

  6. KILL THIS POS OR POSs!! I’LL GLADLY DO IT FOR FREE!! DIE WITH MUCH PAIN YOU WORTHLESS SUBHUMAN!! YOU ARE USELESS AND HATED!! YOU WILL SUFFER KARMIC JUSTICE AND THERE WILL BE NO ESCAPE!!

  7. The Animal Legal Defense Fund fights for laws to protect animals and they do filed lawsuits(pro bono) to help prosecutors prosecute “criminals”. Consider donating to ALDF, they growing and adding more YOUNG new lawyers.

  8. this creep should their eyes glued shut then beaten

  9. This person who abused Sage must live fairly close to the family home. I reallly hope there is some justice against this person. Not just a slap on the wrist.
