Justice for Cat That Suffered Wounds From Rope Tied Tightly Around His Neck

Target: Kym L. Worthy, Prosecutor for Wayne County, Michigan

Goal: Demand that the person who tied a cat to a bush with a dangerously tight rope receive the maximum penalty under law.

A cat was found tied to a bush with a rope so tight that it dug into his neck. The rope created a deep wound in the cat’s skin and had to be surgically removed. Demand that justice is served for this poor cat.

“You can see the wound on the neck all the way around. As a result, the skin started to grow out over the rope. It was open, so flies laid eggs which caused maggots,” stated Elaine Green of Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit. The cat, named Mustang, was tied to a bush outside of the Ford Motor Co. world headquarters building and had been crying for days before employees were able to locate him.

The rope was surgically removed from Mustang’s neck, and he is now recovering. Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit has offered $2,500 to anyone who can identify the person responsible. Sign below and demand that this person receive the maximum penalty under law.


Dear Prosecutor Worthy,

A cat suffered and could have died when a rope was tied tightly around his neck. The rope dug into his skin and left a painful open wound. We demand that justice is served for this innocent cat.

The photos were shocking. A massive open wound surrounded Mustang’s neck, the result of a rope tied too tight. The open wound festered for days, leaving Mustang vulnerable to maggots and other wildlife while he was tied to a picker bush awaiting rescue. If not for the determination of the Ford Motor employees, Mustang could have died.

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

    That poor cat was literally a sitting duck for attacks by other animals. It sounds like this went on longer than a few days?? For the skin to grow over and around the rope etc? Something doesn’t sound right. I think this cat suffered much longer. I do wish the same information in the great description you write was also included in the petition letter, ie crying for days etc. I pray they find this criminal.

    Damn these sick losers!!! Some one should know who was that checkin SH. If you know, and don’t say anything, you are as sick as the one who did it. they need to be punished the way they deserve. Eye for an eye. That is the only way!!!!!!

  6. KatWrangler WELCH says:

    Mustang is NOT “just a cat”. He is a feeling, living being.
    I hope they find whoever did this, and let the punishment fit this CRIME.

    I think everyone here is finished with crimes against animals being downplayed. These are crimes, committed by very evil people. Law Enforcement and our Court Systems have to start taking this dangerous behavior as CRIMES.

    Sweet Mustang – I hope you find your loving home you deserve soon. Not everyone is sick, twisted, evil, and a waste of space.

    Thank you Ford Employees for not giving up on this cat.

    Until those in Government and authority are made to realize that the Animal Kingdom are citizens of this Earth who have the same right we do to live their lives in peace, free from torture and murder at the hands of humans, this planet will remain Hell on Earth for most of them. Governments worldwide should be legislating and enforcing laws to protect the welfare of all species of animals, tame and wild. My heart aches for each and every innocent animal that falls victim…

  9. the piece of garbage that did that needs a beating then time in jail screw ford and employees why take days find the cat cause he a black cat
