Cat Tied Up and Set on Fire Deserves Justice

Target: Eric Clarke, Attorney for Washington County, Utah

Goal: Punish the person who tortured and burned an innocent cat.

A cat named Sterling suffered severe burns after he was tied up and set on fire. The person responsible for this cruelty is still at large and likely dangerous to other animals. Demand justice for this innocent cat.

“In the interest of public safety, an individual who is capable of torturing an animal needs to be identified and taken off the street as soon as possible,” stated Rachel Heatley, the advocacy director of The Humane Society of Utah. They’ve offered a $5,000 reward for anyone who can help identify the person who restrained a cat and set him on fire. A Hildale resident found Sterling wandering around in her yard with gaping wounds and painful burns on his abdomen. He was taken to Best Friends Animal Hospital, where surgery was performed to save his life.

Sterling has been in and out of the hospital since his rescue, battling infections and wounds that refuse to heal. Meanwhile, the person responsible for his suffering walks free. Sign below and demand that they are prosecuted and punished to the fullest extent of the law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear County Attorney Clarke,

A Washington County cat named Sterling endured horrific agony when he was tied up and set on fire. Photos taken by veterinarians shortly after his rescue show severe burns throughout his abdomen and gaping, bloody wounds. Surgery initially saved Sterling’s life, but he is still fighting every day for his recovery as his cuts reopen and infection sets in.

Anyone capable of this level of cruelty is an unquestionable danger to the community. The person responsible for Sterling’s suffering must be apprehended before more animals endure a similar fate. I demand that you prosecute this case, once the responsible party is identified, and seek the harshest punishment possible.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    PROBABLY ONE OF SOCIETY’S USELESS YOUTH WHOSE SHITTY PARENTS NEVER GAVE ENOUGH ATTENTION TO AND THEY SHOULD ALL BE ARRESTED IF EVER CALLED OUT OR YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD IS GROWING A SOCIOPATH OR PSYCHOPATH THAT MAY MOVE ONTO BURNING YOUR DAUGHTER WHO REJECTS HIS NASTY ADVANCES.

    I am significantly this but honestly sometimes the most humane thing to do is put a sweet animal to sleep. No more suffering.

    As much as I would love to catch this person and see that person suffer an eye for an eye as it says in the Bible, one consolation I have for people that torture animals is that they’re not going to live forever and eventually, they will be in a place that’s far worse worse than what they have done to that poor creature.
    God says, when you hurt others be it people or animals, He can do ten times worse to the person who inflicts the harm then what that person did to you that’s why it says in the Bible to pray for your enemy

  5. I lived in Southern Utah for many years and I have to say the attitude towards animals in Utah is poor to say the least. They love to buy puppies from pet stores, think cats are toys for psychos and take dogs for walks on blistering sidewalks and asphalt. If the authorities don’t get serious about this crap it will get worse – Mr Clarke needs to step up to the plate and take care of this heinous crime and improve animal welfare/abuse laws in Utah

  6. Jane Todaro says:

    Whoever did this to Sterling should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and never allowed near an animal ever again!!!!!! Washington County should pay for all of Sterling’s medical needs, and Sterling should be re-homed ASAP!!!!!!!! WHAT IN THE NAME OF SAM HILL IS THE MATTER WITH SOME PEOPLE?????!!!!!

  7. All animal abusers internationally must have the death penalty implemented.I am ready,willing and able to help perform this procedure!

    What the hell is the matter with you in breds in Utah – do you think that karma will not punish you for these horrible acts of animal abuse. I hope to hell you all die a slow and very painful death all alone because you do not deserve anything better. The sooner the better – try and get the idea we don’t need you fuckers walking this earth!!

    • Where are all the Mormons. I thought it was a God fearing place. Wicked retards who harm animals should ALL be lined up and shot at dawn

  11. The death penalty must be implemented.

  12. Catch the vile and evil lowlife psychopathic depraved animal torturing monster bastard and torture this evil bastard to death
