Cat trapped, pinned to death by roller shutter, animal abuse suspected

JOHOR BARU (Bernama): A cat was found dead after being trapped underneath a roller shutter at a bank in Taman Tampoi Utama, Tampoi, here early Monday (Dec 14) morning.

The Malaysia Animal Association in a statement Monday said it was alerted to the incident by a member of the public at about 4.30am.

The association believes that there were elements of cruelty or abuse in the incident.

"The incident seems to have been deliberately committed by holding the cat’s body while the shutter was slowly rolling down until its neck was pinned.

"Cats will not wait at a location with loud and abrupt noise. The loud sound of the shutter would have scared off the cat, ” read the statement posted on the association’s Facebook page.

Those with information pertaining to the incident are urged to come forward and contact the association at 011-20901097. – Bernama
