Dallas police are looking for the person responsible for what they are calling a horrible case of animal cruelty.
Someone impaled two cats by their hind legs on a metal fence at an apartment complex just south of I-30 in Dallas in the 2900 block of Remond Drive.
Irma Quintanilla can’t put into words how she feels after finding out someone was cruel enough to hang her one-year-old cat named Milky onto a six-foot fence in her neighborhood.
“It makes me angry,” said Quintanilla. “It makes me upset. Why would you do that? Why would you be such an idiot to do that?”
Luis Cuevis was working security at the Remond Cliff Plaza Apartments early Friday morning and saw two cats hanging from their hind legs on the fence.
“It kind of gets me nervous,” said Cuevis. “Every time I pass by and I see the dry blood on the poles it gives me chills.”
Dallas firefighters had to cut the top of the fence to remove the cats.
One was taken to Dallas Animal Services but had to be put to sleep. The other cat, Milky, somehow managed to get away and eventually went home, where his owner thought he'd been attacked by another animal.
“His little skin was ripped and peeled, and he was struggling to come inside the house, because I saw a big, black infection on his leg,” said Quintanilla.
Quintanilla took Milky to the veterinarian, but his injury was so severe they had to put him to sleep
“If somebody did do this, then they need to pay the consequences for it,” said Quintanilla. “That’s animal cruelty. That’s not right.”
