On July 1, a man wearing white shoes, white shorts with a logo and a white t-shirt ran up to a young cat in a gas station parking lot and kicked it with all his force like a football. The incident occurred at the Chevron gas station, 2465 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, Atlanta, and was captured on video which surfaced on Instagram.
The Atlanta Police are asking for help identifying the perpetrator, and Crime Stoppers is offering up to $2,000 for tips that lead to an arrest and indictment. If you have any information, or if you own a business in the area and have images of the man on your security cameras, please call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477. All callers may remain anonymous.
Your anonymous call can make a huge difference! Statistics show that up to 71% of domestic violence victims report that their abuser has threatened, harmed, or killed their pets, and the correlation with child abuse is even higher. Someone who has enough rage to injure an animal for fun is dangerous and will continue to hurt others.
LifeLine Animal Project is looking for the injured cat who is probably hiding in the area, so we can provide it with medical care. The cat is a skinny, orange and yellow young adult. If you have seen the cat, please contact Fulton County Animal Services at 404-613-0358. You may remain anonymous.
We are not going to post the video here, as it's very difficult to watch. But if you'd like to see the full video, you can view that here.
