Humane society investigates video of cat thrown off ledge

March 9, 2018

HONOLULU (AP) — The Hawaiian Humane Society has offered a $5,000 reward for any tips leading to the arrest of a man who appeared to throw a cat off a ledge in a video posted on social media.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Thursday that the video posted on social media has since been taken down. The Instagram and Facebook posts were reposted on Stolen Stuff Hawaii’s Facebook page.

Humane Society spokeswoman Allison Andrade Gammel said community members donated money to the cause. She said that it is an animal cruelty case, which could be classified up to as a Class C felony.

Gammel said they have leads pointing to an individual.

Humane Society investigators are deputized by the Honolulu Police Department.
