A cat suffered a long and cruel death after being hung by a rope from a fence in New Jersey. Animal control officers were called to the scene and they freed the cat. They said that the cat was just barely able to touch the ground and tore up the pads on his feet trying to escape. The cat died shortly after arriving at an animal hospital. One of the animal control officers said that this was the worse act of cruelty he had seen in his 16 years on the job.
The Humane Society is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in this case.
