The ASPCA is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case of four newborn kittens found with their throats slashed. An additional $1,200 is being offered by the Suffolk County SPCA, the local animal-protection agency leading the investigation.   

According to Suffolk County SPCA reports, the bodies of the four kittens—estimated to be three weeks old—were discovered on October 1 in the parking area of a business in Riverhead, New York.

“This is a truly sickening case of violent, heartless abuse,” says Stacy Wolf, Senior Vice President of the ASPCA’s Anti-Cruelty Group. “We hope the reward offer sends a message that animal cruelty will not be tolerated in our society. We thank the Suffolk County SPCA for its commitment to finding justice for these four innocent kittens.” 

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Suffolk County SPCA by calling (631) 382-7722.

Please be vigilant in your community and report suspected animal abuse. Visit our Fight Cruelty section to learn which agencies are responsible for investigating and enforcing anti-cruelty laws in your area.

We a,re the CARE takers of earth and animals. It even says in scripture proverbs that the righteous man cares FOR his animals and in New Testament God even knows when a bird falls from the sky!! He loves his animals . How can humans beings be so cruel mean, sick perverted and hateful!! I for one will be praying these people are found out!!! And it is done quickly. We should pray for the protection of animals everyday so this doesn't keep going and at laws and awareness across this country will become more so and stricter!! God please find these people every one of them involved and do what you must. These kittens were innocent creatures!!

Poor kittens, i hope this evil man/woman goes to heck and gets a very evil punishment, if i were the one who got to decide the punishments, u would not want me >:D
and in my opinion, whatever the person did to the animal, that should happen 2 them to. u deprive a kitten of food 4 a week, u don't get food 4 a week either

Anyone that could commit such a sadistic act toward a helpless animal should not be walking amongst us. I hope that everyone involved is brought to justice. People like this will continue hurting animals and eventually move on to hurt human beings.

People suck!!!! I can't wrap my mind around such cruelty!!!

Karen

I hope they find the rotton idiots and do the same to them. Poor innocent pets who didn't have much of a life. I love animals more then I like humans.

Rachel

I hear you Karen. I love animals. They (usually) dont judge you. People however, that ends after the age of 2 or 3. STOP THE ABUSE!!!!!!!!!!

I have said the same remarks over and over to my husband that is a hunter...I could shoot a human before I would harm an animal.
An elderly lady told me once "put your dog and your husband in the trunk of your car and leave them there for a couple of hours (not on a hot day that is). When you open the trunk your husband will come out yelling and screaming mad, your dog will come out wagging its tail and licking you...now that is unconditional love"

THIS IS A CRUEL AND HORRIFIC ACT! THESE PEOPLE OR KIDS NEED TO BE CAUGHT! THESE ACTS OF CRUELTY ARE SIGNS OF SOCIOPATH BEHAVIOR. AND SOCIOPATHS WILL HURT NOT ONLY ANIMALS BUT, HUMANS AS WELL BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO REMORSE OR COMPASSION. PLEASE FIND THESE SICK HUMANS!!!

I don't know where to start because I am so angry about this. What kind of sick person does this to innocent animals. Laws must change and these A holes low lifes should suffer and put in prison for life.
