Justice for Kitten Abandoned in Trash Can  

Target: Lisa Thayer-Welch, State’s Attorney for Garrett County, Maryland

Goal: Demand that the person who left a kitten in a trash can to die receive the maximum penalty under law.

A kitten nearly died after she was abandoned in a trash can. The kitten was found buried under 40 pounds of garbage. Demand justice for this innocent kitten.

“It takes a truly callous person to treat a defenseless kitten like she is nothing more than trash to be thrown away and left to die,” stated Emily Hovermale, state director of Maryland’s Humane Society of the United States. The kitten, named Little Black Beauty by her rescuer, received veterinary care and was deemed healthy. If she hadn’t been found, then she could have suffocated or been crushed by the trash compactor.

Little Black Beauty is safely in the custody of the Garrett County Humane Society. The Humane Society has offered a $5,000 reward for anyone who can help them identify the person who abandoned Little Black Beauty. Sign below and demand that the person responsible receive the maximum penalty under law.


Dear State’s Attorney Thayer-Welch,

An 8-week-old kitten was abandoned in a trash can and nearly died. Her rescuer found her buried under 40 pounds of garbage, where she could have suffocated. We demand justice for this poor kitten.

A Broadford Lake Park employee rescued Little Black Beauty from a trash can in the park. It is unknown how long Little Black Beauty was in the trash can, but she could have been crushed by the trash compactor if not rescued in time. The Humane Society of the United States believes that this was an act of aggravated animal cruelty and has offered a reward for the capture of the person responsible.

This horrific cruelty cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

    i’d love to have a little time with the indiveual if they are ever caught . and have no responsiblity for my actions . it’s really6 amazing what can be taught with some time to spend on it . of course it should be somewhere where the screams wont bouther other people .

    • Diane Petrillo Diane Petrillo says:

      I’d love to help you with that. This no good smug idiot needs to learn a real lesson in taking out the trash. The screaming will not bother me in the least.

  4. People who can do something like that have no thoughts they are doing anything wrong, so have no thought for anybody or any thing. Quite evidently something is lacking in the brain. Which really means you couldn’t trust them with anyone you may care about as they are unfit to breath the same air, if you wish to see that person you care for again. It is them that should be buried under rubbish because they are utter rubbish.

    You peace of nasty garbage, show your self and get what you deserve!! We know a coward loser like you will hide behind a little cats or dogs. You f bastard!! You will get what you deserve. Watch your pitiful back!!

  6. Rose Coffey says:

    Sure hope whoever knows this IDIOT turns him in – to make it even better I hope it is someone who he thinks is a “friend” (if beings like them HAVE friends)!

  7. When this prick is found dump them at the rubbish tip and then make sure its time for more rubbish to be dumped then dump it right on top of the cruel arsehole..there really are some sickos in this world,it really is frightening..

  8. Susan Budde says:

    Whoever did this needs to be thrown in a landfill because only a piece of garbage would do this to another living bring.

  9. Linda Barnett says:

    This sick monster must be found, charged, prosecuted and served with a jail sentence. Whoever did this is a callous excuse for a human being and he or she must pay for carrying out such a despicable act of abusive cruelty. I pray that Little Black Beauty makes a full recovery from her appalling ordeal and is homed with a forever loving guardian where she can be loved and cared for as she so rightly deserves. As for the low life who did this, find them quickly before another innocent little creature is harmed or worse.

  10. Bury this bastard
