For Immediate Release:
28 July 2020
Pahang – After a week of no leads, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is offering a reward of up to RM20,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for setting a kitten on fire, as seen in video footage online. According to reports, the horrific incident took place in Pahang. The Malaysia Animal Association has also offered a reward of RM10,000, bringing the total reward to RM30,000.
Would you please consider sharing this information with your audience? It might be the only way to apprehend those responsible for this heinous act.
“The terror and agony that this helpless kitten must have felt as he or she was set alight is hard to imagine,” says PETA Senior Vice President Jason Baker. “PETA hopes that the rewards will help encourage anyone with information about this cruel and callous crime to come forward immediately so that this kitten’s killer can be held accountable and stopped from hurting anyone else.”
PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way” – warns that animal abusers are a danger to everyone. They take their issues out on whomever is available to them, humans or other animals, demonstrating a deeply worrying psychological state – and they must be caught before they act again.
Anyone with information about the case is urged to contact PETA at [email protected] or the Malaysia Animal Association at +601120901097 (via WhatsApp). For more information about helping animals, please visit PETAAsia.com or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
