Thiruvananthapuram: In a gruesome act of cruelty against animals, a drunk man hung a pregnant cat to death in front of a house here in Kerala’s Palkulangara area. The incident took place on Sunday at a house which was being used as a recreation club by some people for consuming liquor and playing cards.
A complaint was filed by Parvathy Mohan, Campaign coordinator for Federation for Indian Animal Protection organisation and Latha, Kerala secretary of People for Animals, following which an FIR was registered by the police. The incident came to light after Parvathy Mohan narrated the incident on her Facebook page.
The animal rights activists have alleged that the club members had the other day after consuming liquor killed the cat, by hanging it, for fun. Though police were informed, they had initially refused to register a case, as per the post. The post also wanted that those behind the crime should be brought to book.
