The Nassau County SPCA is offering a $1,500 reward and asking for the public’s help in finding the person who shot an 8-week-old kitten with a pellet gun, causing its death.
A Massapequa resident was working with All About Spay Neuter, Inc. on a trap-neuter-return project that fixes feral cats last week when the resident noticed an injured kitten that they trapped four days later, according to agency officials.
The kitten was taken to a veterinarian, where it was discovered that it was shot with a pellet gun.
The kitten had to be euthanized due to the nature of the injuries.
Nassau County SPCA asks anyone with information on this act of animal cruelty to call them at 516-THE-SPCA. All calls will be kept confidential.
