Jessica Wright, a veterinary technician travelling behind the vehicle, recorded the incident on her phone. The car was on the Beltway in Washington DC on Saturday.
“I was really upset about it. I just can’t imagine in what world you wouldn’t think that, that wouldn’t be incredibly humane, but also socially unacceptable.”
When the car stopped she asked the driver about it and he said the cat was a wild cat. The man released the cat near to where the car had stopped.
Is this totally weird or what? The whole thing seems mad to me. There are so many unanswered questions. What the hell was this person doing with a wild cat in a cage strapped to the back of his vehicle? Why not inside the damn vehicle? Why a wild cat? What species of wild cat? What was his intention? It seems he changed his plan once he knew he had been filmed and questioned. Looks like he is lying big time. His behavior was not illegal.
