HILDALE, Utah – The Human Society of Utah is offering a $5,000 reward for anyone who has information on whoever set a cat on fire and tortured it.
The Human Society said the critically injured cat wandered into a Hildale yard Tuesday. Hildale is on the state line with Arizona.
A woman who lives at the home took the cat to a veterinarian in Hurricane who said wounds showed the cat had been tortured.
The cat, now named Sterling, was recovering at RSQ Dogs, an animal rescue in St. George, according to a Humane Society of Utah news release.
Rachel Heatley from the Humane Society said, “Hildale is known to be a tough spot for animals, but this level of cruelty should unnerve the community.”
Heatley added, “In the interest of public safety, an individual who is capable of torturing an animal needs to be identified and taken off the street as soon as possible.”
Anyone with information on Sterling’s torture is urged to contact the Colorado City Marshal’s Office at 928-875-2695.
Callers do not have to give their name.
