DALLAS -- Police are asking for the public's help to find a suspect who impaled two cats by their hind legs on a fence outside of a west Dallas apartment complex.
According to Dallas Police Maj. Max Geron, at about 2:50 a.m. on June 27, a citizen called to report the cats were impaled on a six-foot metal fence at an apartment complex in the 2900 block of Remond Drive.
Dallas Fire-Rescue cut off the tops of the fence posts to free the severely injured cats, but as they were preparing the felines for transport, one ran away and could not be located.
Dallas Animal Services took custody of the remaining cat, but it had to be euthanized due to the extent of its injuries.
Police are looking for a suspect described as a Hispanic male between the ages of 25 and 35. He was seen fleeing the location in a white, 4-door Honda Accord.
Anyone with information in this case is asked to call Detective Ira Carter at 214-671-0633.
