Cru­elty case claims cat with tu­mours

Mandurah Coastal Times - - NEWS -

IT was a hor­ror 24 hours for RSPCA WA in­spec­tors around the State, with cru­elty and ne­glect cases be­ing re­ported from Perth to Man­durah and Bun­bury.

They at­tended a puppy bash­ing south of Perth, a ne­glected cat in Man­durah, a dog with se­vere mange in Perth’s north­east and an in­jured foal in Bun­bury.

In Man­durah, an in­spec­tor seized a cat with large tu­mours on its head and body.

Some were in­fected with mag­gots, seep­ing pus and bleed­ing.

It was taken to a vet but the sever­ity of its wounds meant it was be­yond treat­ment and the an­i­mal was eu­thanased.

In all cases, in­spec­tors are gath­er­ing ev­i­dence so they can press charges un­der the An­i­mal Wel­fare Act (2002).

This cat from Man­durah was seized due to its hor­ri­fy­ing con­di­tion.
