Another horrific case of animal abuse is making its rounds on social media but this case is too close to home.
Nancy Stewart – Lynett of Fort McMurray is looking for help in finding the culprits who physically abused a seven-week old kitten and then proceeded to try and skin her alive.
“I am looking for ANY information whatsoever regarding a case of animal cruelty that took place mid-late October in Garden River of this year. A group of teenage kids we’re caught trying to skin a 7 week old kitten alive. They had thrown the kitten in the air, kicked her and started to skin her alive. They began at her mouth and were on their way to tearing her legs apart when a young girl heard the commotion outside of her home and ran to save her.” she posted on the TAAG facebook page.
The woman goes into detail about what the alleged teenagers were doing to the kitten.
” They began at her mouth and were on their way to tearing her legs apart when a young girl heard the commotion outside of her home and ran to save her.
The young girl and her grandmother brought the kitten to The Animal Assistance Group in Sault Ste. Marie where she was treated and fostered. The vets in Michigan tried to surgically pull her skin forward to connect her bottom lip but weren’t successful. Hazel could barely walk when she was brought in to Sault Animal Hospital in Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan.”
Stewart – Lynett has since moved to Fort McMurray “I have adopted Hazel and she is living the life she deserves with my other pets here in Fort McMurray”
Those with any information are asked to contact Anishnabek police (705) 946-2539), the SPCA (705) 949-3573), TAAG (705) 575-7030), Sault Animal Hospital in Michigan (906) 635-5910 (under the name Spike) and/or the O.P.P.
“I want these kids caught before it happens to another animal. People who abuse animals are more likely to hurt people. This is why it’s so important to report animal abuse. Not only will you help Hazel, but you will help your community to be a safer place for everyone.”
Stewart – Lynett is offering $150 reward for valid information that may lead to the abusers being found .
