WILLS POINT (CBSDFW.COM) - The SPCA of Texas is offering $2,000 as a reward to the person or people who provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator(s) who has allegedly severely burned a cat in the Cochise Village neighborhood of Wills Point on March 11, 2014. The cat has third degree burns down its back and on its ears, and is currently in the care of a veterinarian, according to a press release.

The SPCA of Texas points out that animal cruelty is often an early warning sign of violent tendencies that will be acted out against people. Childhood cruelty to animals has been linked to later antisocial and aggressive behavior in several retrospective studies.

“There is a well-documented link between animal cruelty and human violence.” said SPCA of Texas President James Bias. “Helping the Hunt County Constable bring this individual to justice will help stop the cycle of abuse.”

April is Animal Cruelty Prevention Month, and the SPCA of Texas, the Hunt County Constable Pct. 1 and the Hunt County District Attorney are partnering to raise awareness about animal cruelty by asking anyone who sees suspected animal cruelty or abuse to contact their local law enforcement agency and the SPCA of Texas. To report suspected cruelty or abuse to the SPCA of Texas, call 214.742.SPCA or visit spca.org/abuse.

Anyone with information on this case should contact the SPCA of Texas at 214.461.1850.
