A local animal rescue said a cat thrown from a moving car was dead

A local animal shelter wants answers after one of its volunteers said she witnessed a horrific act of animal abuse on Friday afternoon. She said it happened near 72nd and Grover Streets. Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue said it wants people to know there are plenty of options if you can’t care for your pet. And they don’t want to see an animal die that way. It was near 72nd and Grover Streets on Friday afternoon when a Muddy Paws Rescue volunteer saw a car in front of her throw something out of their moving vehicle. “The volunteer described it as if she thought it was a black t-shirt until she saw him panicking and trying to get up and out of traffic,” said Isaiah Langworthy, a member of the board and volunteer. Langworthy said that was when she realized it was a small black house cat. “For a 15-pound kitten, that’s a death sentence,” Langworthy said. Langworthy said he was hit by two cars before the volunteer could pull over. He said the volunteer told him it was very obvious the person had thrown the cat and it was not an accident. And the car he came from kept going. “I broke down instantly the second I found out. Tears were streaming down my face,” Langworthy said. The cat was rushed to a veterinary clinic where he died. “None of us want to see an animal go down this path. It wasn’t a quick and painless death for this animal. It was you know, they went from here to emergency animal care from company. You know, he was in pain the whole time, being hit by two cars, being thrown out the window,” Langworthy said. He said that’s one of the most devastating ways for an animal to die and that if you can’t take care of your pet, it will help you.” If you’ve gotten to the point where you think it’s your only option, reach out. We have options. We will make room if necessary. Contact other rescues, humane societies,” Langworthy said. Muddy Paws said the volunteer who witnessed the incident was not given a car description or license plate because it happened. happened so quickly. But they want to know who did this. The Nebraska Humane Society is also asking anyone with information about this incident to contact them.
