The Humane Society of the United States is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information in a Cecil County animal cruelty case. 

On Sept. 7, a severely tortured cat was found in an apartment complex in the Hollingsworth Manor neighborhood of Elkton. The cat was tortured and then burned to death.

“It is absolutely horrific to imagine someone intentionally and viciously harming an innocent cat in this way,” said Emily Hovermale, Maryland state director for the Humane Society, said in a press release. “Whoever would commit such a crime is clearly a dangerous person, and we are hopeful that this reward will bring forward anyone with information about this heinous crime."

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Cecil County Animal Services at 410-441-2040.
