Cats Baited With Fish Hooks Deserve Justice

Target: Stefanie A. Salavantis, District Attorney for Luzerne County, Pennsylvania

Goal: Punish the person who used baited fish hooks to trap stray cats.

A stray cat nearly died after he was trapped with a baited fish hook. At least two more cats are still out there suffering. Demand justice in this case.

“This bastard used hooks. He fed them hooks. Omg.” These words began a post on the Happy Hearts and Tails Safe Haven Animal Rescue Facebook page. Included was a horrifying picture of a stray cat with a fishing hook, complete with string, hanging out of his mouth. A veterinarian also found a hook, baited with cat food, in the poor animal’s stomach. Emergency surgery saved this cat’s life, but he suffered torn lips and gums, gangrene in his mouth, and a 106 degree fever.

The rescuer spotted two other cats with strings hanging out of their mouths, but she has been unable to catch them. The Plymouth police are investigating and they have not named any suspects. Sign below to demand that the person responsible for this heinous crime is prosecuted and punished.


Dear District Attorney Salavantis,

An unknown assailant is baiting stray cats with fish hooks containing cat food. This person is still at large and dangerous. I demand that justice be served in this case.

A rescuer with Happy Hearts and Tails Safe Haven Animal Rescue rushed a stray cat to the vet after he appeared to have ingested fish hooks. One hook clung to his lips and gums, the line still attached, and another was found inside his stomach. The cat endured intense pain and would have died if not for the quick actions of the rescuer and the veterinarian. He is not the only victim out there, though. Two other stray cats were spotted with similar lines hanging from their mouths and they are likely still suffering terribly.

The person who is setting these sadistic traps is clearly a danger to animals of all kinds. They must be stopped. I demand that you prosecute them and seek the maximum penalty in this case.

  1. Dess penalty för this pervo!

  2. Dead penalty for this pervo!

  3. Catch this sadistic bastard and prohibit him from further contact with animals, children or any other human being. Is this standard operating procedure in Pennsylvania? If so, we should investigate. What kind of rotten, useless piece of perversion does this? Where are those he lives with and around? This is a psychopath. Get him away from decent people and away from animals–away from any living thing. What a waste of protoplasm!

    • Denise Ede says:

      I totally agree with you. Sub Human vile nasty bastard should be punished to the fullest. Next it will be children or the older folk. STOP THIS NOW

  4. This is gratuitous cruelty and sadism of the most egregious sort. A psychopath is on the loose and Luzerne County police and the DA’s office must make this dangerous individual’s capture, arrest and punishment a top law enforcement priority. It is well documented that those who abuse animals do not limit their horrific acts of cruelty to non-human animals. This is a very dangerous and sadistic deviant who represents a clear and present danger to the community.

  5. They need to do the same thing to him!!!

  6. Oh please find this cold-blooded heartless low-life psychopath scumbag bastard and bait him with fishhooks in his eotten mouth. Let this individual know the cruel and sadistic pain, suffering and TRAUMA he caused these poor helpless cats. Boy, how we would love to give him a taste of his own medicine. You have to be really mentally deranged to be so cruel to do something like this

  7. Vigilantes in Pennsylvania, where you at??

      JH ~ Probably hiding in their mommy’s basement !

    • LaShell West says:

      Sorry, I thought you were asking where the people were that had committed this horrific act. i was in a hurry but wanted to reply, and had just glanced at your comment without really taking a good look at it. But, we definitely need people that will find these sicko’s and show them a little vigilante justice !

  8. Find the the BIG BASTARD and eye for an eye to him!!!

  9. Patricia Williams says:

    You need to catch this perverted POS. Jail and fines are too lenient. This is planned torture.

  10. It takes a very sick mind to dream this up as a way to torture cats. Please find this sick demented person and don’t let him off easy. He deserves real punishment. This is a crime!!

  11. Anne Steph says:

    What kind of mind thinks of doing such a terrible and cruel thing??? Someone must know something – whoever is feeding the stray cats is not as kind, as it appears and what are they doing with fish hooks – taking fish from these poor abandoned cats?? Please catch these remaining suffering cats and throw and keep this human scum in a sewer where “it” belongs

  12. Nena Miller says:

    No cat or dog wants to be a stray, to be homeless. It’s a human’s fault that they are in this situation. I curse the asshole creep who would torture an animal like this, justice will be served. A real human would help a stray cat or dog.

    • Charleen Murphy says:

      Yes, so true! You can’t help if you’re without a home.. I’m praying they can find & help those other cats & they eradicate the thing who harmed them

  13. Nancy J. Smith says:

    If they ever find this SOB who did this horrible thing to those cats, they should put hooks in his BALLS! That should teach him a lesson! Then he will know how it feels to have pain! LOTS AND LOTS OF PAIN! But as always, they never find these demented people who do these horrible things to animals. I don’t even think they TRY to find them. After All “it’s just a bunch of cats.” That’s their excuse! Hope they find that asshole anyway. I wish I could be there when they do. I’d beat the crap out that person!

    • I’d help you beat the crap out of them.

    • Charleen Murphy says:

      I hope they find those other 2 precious cats & can save them!! Those poor defenceless babies!! I hope the sick twisted monsters who did this suffer a very long very painful demise soon!! If I found them I would put hooks in their mouths after bashing them senseless. I’m crying for these beautiful cats

  14. Evelyn Ball says:

    Really WTF is wrong with people? Those bastards should have a fish hook shoved down their throat!!

  15. Life sentence for bastard(s) who did this. Justice for cats!

  16. My god what the hell is wrong with people i pray who ever did this is caught and spend yeaRs in jail and with animal lovers

  17. Clave Wilson says:

    Hate to state it but those of us working for a just, ethical world for all beings are fighting a losing battle. Evil is rampant.

  18. Giuliana Bettinzoli says:

    Il solito essere inutile e dannoso.

  19. Elia Gilles says:

    This is a PREMEDITATED ACT! Please find this criminal and punish him/her to the fullest extent of the law. Please don’t just dismiss the gravity of this offense.

    • Charleen Murphy says:

      I agree, find them, do the same & then hang them!! I love animals & get so sick of people & animals are way better. Those poor little cats ???
