Two days after Christmas, a motorist witnessed this young, helpless kitten being thrown from a Black SUV car window onto an area where Routes 21 and 1 and 9 merge in Newark. She saw the kitten hit the concrete median and fall to the road. He must have been stunned temporarily; then the terrified teen-ager jumped to the top of the concrete road divider.
The Police were contacted who then called the Society to rescue the forlorn feline. Animal Control Officer Alvis Carrington was immediately dispatched to rescue the youngster who was either too frightened or traumatized to jump off. He surely would have been killed if he tried. When he arrived at the scene, Alvis scooped up the youngster who came out of it virtually unscathed and survived.
Ironically, the Society’s Newark facility was less than 3 minutes away from where he was cruelly dumped. We cannot comprehend how anyone could be so unfeeling as to do this to an innocent animal, and we are offering a $1,000.00 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator.
We call him “Highway” and he has a unique bottomless pit requiring love and affection. If you have empty arms, we have a beautiful bundle of fur who needs a lifetime of adoration. Nothing less would be deserving of Highway. File N-78017-M (Newark-Med.)
