You may remember the story of the poor cat in FL who was shot with a pellet gun 30 times, locked in a carrier and tossed into a body of water. Good news: police will be holding a presser today to announce the arrest of a suspect in the case.
Just in case there was any doubt in your mind that this was not the act of a psycho, there is a photo at the link of the carrier in which the cat was found. They took the time to draw “funny” things on it. There is also a photo of the kitty, recovering from her wounds (may be too graphic for some). I’m so glad she’s hanging in there.
I’ll update this post if any significant details come to light at the presser.
Update #1: Story at above link has been updated to include the name and photo of the suspect:
He’s identified as Giovanni Estrada of Tampa.
Estrada is charged with two counts of animal cruelty. He was released on bond.
Update #2: From the same article:
[The suspect’s] girlfriend, Mildred Marie Krack, was the cat’s owner and she also may be charged.
