Humane society investigates video of cat thrown off ledge

HONOLULU — The Hawaiian Humane Society has offered a $5,000 reward for any tips leading to the arrest of a man who appeared to throw a cat off a ledge in a video posted on social media.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Thursday that the video posted on social media has since been taken down. The Instagram and Facebook posts were reposted on Stolen Stuff Hawaii’s Facebook page.

Humane Society spokeswoman Allison Andrade Gammel said community members donated money to the cause. She said that it is an animal cruelty case, which could be classified up to as a Class C felony.

Gammel said they have leads pointing to an individual.

Humane Society investigators are deputized by the Honolulu Police Department.

    A felony for throwing some useless cat out the window, when in fact domestic and feral cats in America kill over 1 billion birds, both endangered ones and others! It is also a known scientific fact that a large percentage of cats have this deadly brain virus spread to human by their feces and urine called Toxiplasma. In New Zealand hunters are allowed to shoot feral cats because they kill rare animals.
