CLINTON, La. (AP) — The Humane Society of the United States is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to those responsible for the shooting deaths of several cats in Ethel.
Sgt. Kevin Garig tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/UdI1Ss ) the East Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating the incident, which apparently happened in the vicinity of a home off La. Highway 995 West, during the weekend of Nov. 10-11.
Garig says he also is investigating the circumstances under which the cats apparently were abandoned when the resident moved from the house where the cats were staying.
Garig says veterinarians who treated the animals said they were shot at close range, primarily in their eyes or rectums.
