Kitten Rescued By Security Guards

Rescued Kitty

Thank goodness for Good Samaritans. Two off-duty security guards saw a young couple tie a calico cat to railroad tracks in San Antonio, TX. The couple drove off, and the two security guards pulled up to the tracks to see the cat’s hind legs tied down with a shoelace. They untied the cat, caught up to the couple’s car and got their license plate number. The couple got away when the man pulled out a gun and pointed it at the security guards.

More information about the case after the jump.

(Thanks Jennifer)

At this point, no one has been arrested in the case. The police are investigating the case as of deadly conduct because the man pulled a gun on the security guards.

One of the security guards is thinking about adopting the cat, now named Tracks. His piece of advice for anyone who would tie a cat to railroad tracks: “go to a mental institution and see what’s wrong with your brain.”

    Who, in their right mind, would even think to do something like this? I’m incapable of even thinking along those lines.

    Always blows my mind how people could be so cruel…but then again I never did get sickos. I hope soemday they find themselves tied to a track or something just as nasty.
    Bless those guards though for not only rescuing that cute little guy but for trying to track the dirtbags down. Sadly, nice people like that still don’t make for for the nasty ones…nasty ones shouldn’t be there period!

    Lucky kitty. I hope those cruel people aren’t so lucky.

    These idiots pulled a gun on the security guards!! Gee, do ya think there might be a link between animal cruelty and other criminal behaviors? Wouldn’t it have been easier to drop that poor kitten off at a shelter? Some people have no respect for life, so it’s not a far leap from tying a kitten to the train tracks & threatening to shoot a person who asks you about it.

    little calico honey!

    i think i read somewhere that there’s some place that they keep finding dogs killed in exactly this manner-i just can’t recall where and when but they were seeking suspects.

    There are some truly sick people on this planet.

    If it’s not some vile sadistic act like this, it’s putting melamine in food, not inspecting your products or being honest with your customers.

    On and on. Thankfully there are people who care enough to stand up against this kind of hideous stuff.

    Every year that I lived on the farm someone would drop off a dog or kittens. I could not understand why they could be so cruel. I found one dog living on grasshoppers one summer. I found him a home thank goodness. When you live on a farm you can only afford to take care of so many strays. These people buy kittens and puppie and when they grow up they do not want them any more or they will not spade them and they have babies and they throw them out on the road side. It is terrible!
    To look at this sweet tiny kitten in the pic. and I wonder how could they and why would they be so cruel to something so fragile. I hope they catch them!

    what i find really creepy about this is that the culprits are described as “a couple”. can you imagine the offspring creatures like this would produce? that is, if the kids survive having parents like this. the security guards got their license plate number, so assuming they actually own this car these people will be caught. they should be sterilized so there’s no chance that they’ll ever reproduce again… and then tied to railroad tracks.

  11. JJ says:

    No doubt that couple is involved in other criminal activities…they did after all, threaten the security guards with guns. As you can see, those willing to take an animal’s life in this way are also willing to take a human’s life. Evil is evil. The way to curb this is to make aggravated animal cruelty a punishment that carries heavy consequences, such as life in prison or the death penalty. This is because animal cruelty is unforgivable on its own merits, and no civilized society should tolerate it. Also, though, by putting away the offenders, there is no doubt that innocent human lives will be saved, because those who torture and kill animals will do the same to humans if given the opportunity. This has been proven again and again. At least this particular story has a happy ending…those security guards are heroes!

    How horrible. I just can’t understand . I hope they catch them and tie them to the tracks. Maybe being a couple and hanging around, they wanted to watch. Sick sick people in this world. And not punishment enough for something like this.

  13. Pam says:

    Yay for those security guards. I love their advice, too. So funny because it’s so true.

  14. momkat says:

    This kind of story makes me ashamed of my species.

    Animals don’t intentionally exhibit cruel and dangerously hateful behaviour toward each other….only humans can do that.

    It’s hard to believe that those people who did that were ever someone’s cute little babies.
    What kind of hatred can make a monster like that?!

  15. KarlaSanDiego says:

    I agree with Trudy
    That sick sick sick “couple” needs to be caught and yes, tied to some tracks and done with.

  16. Kevin says:

    I hope they are caught, poked in the eye with a sharp stick, then tied to some railroad tracks, then tourtured, then killed and then tourtured again and poked in the other eye, set on fire and then killed again!

    What a bunch of loser humans.

    I love the name “Tracks.” That is a cool name for the rescued kitty.


    i often wonder whats going on with the people in this world today.they kill each other.and if thats not enough they go after the beloved animals.3 things they should be punish for 1 cruelty to an animal 2 atemted murder 3 drugs in there system…if they think that they can do this to a kitten just think what they can do to a child…the devil is working over time in this world….and this sick couple had to be on drugs..i think that this couple should be force in to a church and force them to read the bible….i know that this sounds to easy for them….but believe me the devil is in them and anyone who has the devil in them would hate the bible. doing this to them will kill them…..the best we can do now is to pray that they will get caught and be punish..and i would like to say to the security guards thank you for being at the right place at the right time to rescued this poor little kitten and most of all thank you for keeping tracks and giveing him a good home with you… both are angels in my book….please give tracks a hug and a big kiss for are in my prayers………………..

    A lot of times the people who abuse animals are doing it as a precursor of violence against humans. Jeffery Dahmer is just one example.

    Nonetheless, to attack helpless animals merits a special place in hell for these evil savages. If these two had an ‘asphalt encounter’ while being handcuffed by the cops, that’s just icing on the cake. These two deserve a severe beating as do all animal abusers.
