Reward For Feral Kitten Killer In Ronkonkoma, New York
by Elisa Black-Taylor
Two litters of a colony of feral kittens were killed last week near Veterans Memorial Highway and Sycamore Avenue in Ronkonkoma, New York. There’s at least a $1000 reward offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the monster(s) responsible. The reward may go up as more people are supporting the movement to find these kitten killers.
These kittens are part of a managed colony of TNR cats. The mama cats have recently joined the colony and haven’t been spayed. They are cared for by a kind soul named Lori, who has been tending to feral colonies for more than 10 years.
Lori contacted Guardians of Rescue last Friday morning as she cried over the lifeless, mutilated bodies of Chap’s and Midnight’s babies. Chap’s kittens were under three weeks old and Midnight’s only three days old when someone went into the colony and used a blunt instrument to kill these kittens. Then that person threw their lifeless bodies throughout the surrounding area.
This is the first article where I refuse to show any of the photos. They’re too heartbreaking. Should you care to see them, they’re on the Guardians of Rescue Facebook page. Trust me, don’t look at them.
A veterinarian has examined what’s left of the kittens after suffering blunt force head trauma, penetrating wounds and deep tissue sticking out. This was not the work of a wild animal. Someone posing a human did this.
Pieces of shelter were broken off of the cat houses. Now Chap and Midnight are going from shelter to shelter searching for their kittens.
Guardians of Rescue has someone watching over the colony site around the clock now. They also have a private investigator on the case and will be working with the property ownerin putting up a fence.
Authorities have been contacted and a $1000 reward has been put up. Anyone who knows anything about this case should call 1-888-287-3864 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
