If you know who threw pregnant cat from moving car it could earn you �1,000 reward
ANIMAL rights campaigners have offered a �1,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for throwing a pregnant cat from a moving car in March.
The cat, named Jolie, was hurled from a car in the Upwell Road area of the town and was later handed over to the RSPCA after being spotted by a couple.
Remarkably, Jolie was able to lead an RSPCA inspector to the disused barn where she had earlier given birth to her four kittens. All of the cats were suffering from dehydration and they are now being cared for at Block Fen animal centre.
The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) today offered the �1,000 reward in an effort to bring those people, who left their cat and her kittens for dead, to justice.
Mimi Bekhechi, spokesman for PETA, said: “Someone in March must know something about the cruel individual who committed this callous act. We’re calling on anyone with information about the case to come forward.

“A person capable of deliberately causing this kind of suffering to a helpless animal demonstrates a very worrying psychological state and must be found.”
PETA said there was evidence to suggest that those who commit violent acts against animals could also pose a threat to humans.
