The Oakville & Milton Humane Society (OMHS) are seeking the public’s help in solving an animal abuse incident in the Trafalgar-River Oak Boulevard area in Oakville earlier this week. The OMHS responded to a call for a stray cat found, injured and in distress, on Wednesday October 19, 2016 on Orion Court in the River Oaks community of Oakville.
Upon assessing the cat, a mechanical pencil was found inserted in its rectum; the object was implanted so deeply that the feline required surgery to have it removed. The cat also sustained an injured leg and had a binder clip clamped to its tail. Due to the extent of the cat’s injuries and trauma, the OMHS has initiated an investigation to find the person or persons behind this act.
Ontario SPCA (Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) Agents of the OMHS have the authority to investigate allegations of animal abuse and neglect under both federal and provincial legislation.
“We are urging anyone who may have any information about this cat and its injuries to come forward,” says Agent Mackasey, head of the Animal Protective Services Unit at the OMHS and an Agent of the OSPCA. “This cat may not be able to tell us who did this to her, but hopefully someone in the community can.”
The cat, a female black and white short haired cat, is currently recovering from its injuries.
Anyone with information regarding this case may call the OMHS’s anonymous Anti-Cruelty tip line at 905-845-1551 ext 131 or CrimeStoppers Halton http://www.haltoncrimestoppers.com/
