A woman rushed a severely injured cat that was reportedly thrown out of a moving car in Scarsdale this week, according to the SPCA of Westchester.
Lisa Bonanno-Spence, the Briarcliff Manor organization's development manager, said, "A good samaritan who witnessed this atrocity picked up the cat and rushed it to Central Animal Hospital in Scarsdale. Unfortunately, the cat was dead upon arrival."
The woman did not provide her name to the veterinarian's office and was gone from the scene before SPCA Director of Humane Law Enforcement Ernest Lungaro arrived at the scene.
Lungaro reportedly told LoHud.com the cat's injuries were consistent with being thrown from a car.
The SPCA is now searching for any information about the woman who rushed the young cat to the hospital, as well as any leads regarding the person(s) responsible for allegedly mistreating the cat in a way that ultimately led to her death.
If you have any information about the woman or the incident, the SPCA asks that you call its confidential hotline at 914-941-7797.
