Dallas police are seeking help in finding a person suspected of animal cruelty in a case involving two cats.
On June 27 at approximately 2:50 am, a citizen called to report that a suspect had impaled two cats by their hind legs on a 6-foot metal fence in an apartment complex in the 2900 block of Remond Dr., not far from the SPCA of Texas on Westmoreland Rd.
Dallas Fire Rescue responded by cutting off the top portion of the metal fence posts, in order to remove the severely injured cats.
While they were freeing the cats from the fence, one ran off before Dallas Fire Rescue personnel could place it in a container for transport; it could not be located.
Dallas Animal Services took custody of the other cat which had to be euthanized due to the extent of its injuries.
The Dallas Police Department is seeking the suspect responsible for this offense of Animal Cruelty. The suspect is described as a Latin male between the ages of 25 to 35. He was seen fleeing the location in a white 4-door Honda Accord. Anyone with information on this offense is asked to call Detective Ira Carter at 214-671-0633.
UPDATE: The second cat, a one-year-old named Milky, eventually returned to his owner, but also had to be euthanized due to the severity of his injuries.
