IN THIS PODCAST:
Gail Ventzke, founder and director of Cat’s Cradle Animal Rescue, Fargo.
Gail has been a busy cat lover. She rescued a male feline, they now call “Bullet.” He was found shot, ‘clean through’ in rural Frazee, Minnesota.
Sorry. A yucky picture indeed. Gail seriously doubts it is an “accidental shooting.” Bullet, is obviously someone’s pet, left behind from a move, or sneaked out while the owner wasn’t looking. (We know how that can go.)
That’s troubling…if true. Really? A cat gets out, or left behind and the locals make sport out of terrorizing a “pet.” Big, tough guys I bet. And, to make matters worse, it sounds like that’s just OK. Ms. Venske says that there are reports that if people in certain rural lake’s areas report a cat problem to authorities they are told to just “shoot ’em.”
That’s troubling…if true.
As I said on KFGO today, in my mind, a cat pooping in someone’s flower bed isn’t worthy of the death penalty. We all should have more respect for life. Even cats. I know. Bleeding heart.
Bullet has seen the vet, is staying overnight, and will probably make it.
Bullet looks a little freaked out here, after the surgery described in the podcast. Please listen and share.
Cat’s Cradle is covering the cost of this rescue.
We can all help here.
