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. How sick and depraved can people be to other living beings? I am always appalled at how much worse is seems people can be to animals, and even to other human beings. I hope they find this person/these people and throw the book at them.

      Yep. The only thing I can hold onto is the really awesome people who are out there doing everything they can to stop monsters like this and save precious lives.

    Please ,lord , find and beat these pieces of shits to death. Amen

  7. james waldo says:

    Please catch and kill them. Gracias

    We keep demanding and demanding justice, but nothing seems to happen. When these perpetraters are caught, some idiotic lawyers seem to get them off with a slap on the wrist. Look how many times you read these people were previously arrested for something but had suspended sentences, light fines or community services. Gee that’s showing them isn’t it?

    We can demand until we are blue in the face. Until the laws take it seriously enough to hand out stiffer, harsher punishments, these idiotic, heartless pieces of crap will continue because they think of the laws as a big, fat joke that they are not afraid of. Laws please start taking my advice and cut a hand off for first offense, if there is another, cut the other hand off. They will have to stop then won’t they? The laws are the first enablers of these crimunals. Its up to them to punish. They won’t let the public do anything. Plaster these nut jobs faces on all billboards, buses, milk cartons etc. so that the people will know who they are. At least then they can and will be watched 24/7.

  9. Denise Devereux says:

    Someone knows who is doing this. Have the guts to let us and the authorities know.
    Don’t live in your country but please someone have the morale fibre to stop this. We all know the Law will do little to punish or deter such crimes. Practice makes perfect next it will be human torture.
    Perpetrators we are patient, we people of the world will find you and show you what pain is really like. Let’s see how you go when you meet your match.

  10. No excuse for this kind of criminal, animal abuse. This person needs to be caught and severely punished, the public all across America are fed up and sick and tired of this kind of thing, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

  11. PATRICIA WELCH says:

    Another comment said that this POS bragged about his torture on FB. So if the public knows who this is, the police should be able to figure it out. These are NOT “just cats”. They’re living beings that are suffering painfully, and most likely dying long and horrible deaths. Ignorant a-holes.

    As far as I’m concerned, I agree with others here. Put the a-hole’s info out there and hopefully some cat/animal lover will end this s#!t – end what’s happening, and end the monster who’s doing it. So many of us are getting it up to our eyebrows with psychopaths doing AND getting away with their crimes.

  12. Agree 100% with previous comments – & as Patricia Welch so rightly pointed out, if this *!#*! bragged on FB, can be easily found – so please FIND this sicko asap to stop more cruelty being carried out!!!

  13. This monster, when caught, should have a fish hook imbedded in his mouth for months so that he knows what horrible pain he has caused these living, feeling creatures. Let the punishment fit the crime! Also, lock him up for good. There is no room in society for people like him.

  14. Seems to me I remember a horror movie and someone was torn apart by a device that was like a whirling column connected to fish hooks-that’s what’s needed for this guy.

  15. Kelly Wilcox says:

    What a piece of sh.t. shame on them. They deserve the same treatment lets see let us do the same to them. Let us put a hook in their mouths and use them for bait for the fish that like to eat and does not matter humane or not. Wouldn’t that be fun to see them try to survive such a horrible act such as this. I just wish that Karma would take care and hope it does to all these disgusting pieces of crap that deserve what they get. Am so sick and tired of these little so called people who are lower then the lowest to do this sick kind of perverted act. I DEMAND THAT YOU FIND THIS LITTLE PIECE OF SH.T and make them PAY NOW !!!!!!

  16. Divulge these POS names and contact details. Instigation of the death penalty for these bastards is essential!

  17. Kathy S Khoshfahm says:

    Stefanie – Please give this matter the full attention it deserves and catch this POS. I am so sick of animal suffering at the hands of humans…

  18. What a miserable asshole. I hope you get what’s coming to you really soon.
