It happened around 10 Thursday morning at the 100 block of Merchant Street. The kitten was thrown from a white, four-door sedan with a white male driver with grey hair. The kitten hit a tree and then fell to the ground. It died later in the afternoon from its injuries.
Rescue the Animals is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who are responsible for the kitten's death. They say this happens several times a year.
The two men who found the kitten say the unnecessary cruelty needs to stop, and they hope finding the person responsible will help do just that.
