Reward offered in Great Bend cat decapitation
GREAT BEND, Kansas - It is a case that has sparked outrage in Great Bend.
"We just had a body, we didn't have any extra variables."
October 26th, a family found a dead cat near their yard. It had been dismembered.
"I responded to the scene and found a cat underneath a row of trees. There was blood around it. The head was cut from a knife, not from any kind animals and left there overnight," said Seth Orebaugh, animal control officer.
Investigators say the cat was found in the 1400 block of 12th Street.
Now, the Humane Society of the United States is stepping forward, determined to find those responsible for the crime.
"Acts like this, just doesn't stop with animals such as cats," said Heather Acheson, Golden Belt Humane Society Director. "It can go to larger animals, and then sometimes people. People like this you know will end up hurting other people."
The Humane Society of the United States is offering a $5,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person who committed the crime.
