Reward offered for Long Island sicko who beheaded kitten
A decapitated cat was found on Long Island and animal care groups are upping an award to find the psycho who committed the heinous act.
The Suffolk County SPCA has been trying to figure out who tortured and beheaded Pepper the cat since she was found outside her owner’s Centereach home on March 30, officials with the agency said.
“We know she was tortured prior to being beheaded,” Suffolk County SPCA Chief Roy Gross told The Post. “We never recovered the cat’s head. We believe they may have taken it as a trophy.”
The reward is now up to $3,000 for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the animal cruelty case, combing $2,000 from the Suffolk County SPCA and $1,000 from the New York State Humane Association.
“It’s heinous to say the least,” Gross said. “It appears that somebody tortured it and broke its ribs.”
He also said the cat was taken to a veterinarian who determined the head had been deliberately cut off with a “sharp tool.” The vet also took x-rays and determined the animal had injuries to its chest and broken ribs.
Pepper was last seen alive between 7-8 p.m. on March 29.
Gross said his organization has people out distributing posters offering the reward and that all tips will be confidential.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Suffolk County SPCA at 631 382-7722.
