$2,500 Reward Offered in Case of Burned Kitten at Wynne

WYNNE, AR (KAIT) - The Humane Society of the United States is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for setting a kitten on fire in Wynne last week.

On Thursday (8/14), Wynne Police Dept. investigators responded to a citizen complaint of a burned kitten that had been found with singed hair over two-thirds of her body.  The 4-month-old kitten survived the attack, but also sustained severe burns on her head, tail and genital area.  The animal is being treated by Dr. Harmon Smith of the Cross County Veterinary Clinic.

"Those who abuse animals can be dangerous to people," said Desiree Bender, the HSUS' Arkansas state director.  "Americans have no tolerance for violence against the creatures who share our world."
