As reported in the Washington Post, a man is wanted in Poolesville, Maryland (a town northwest of Washington, D.C.) for abandoning a 10 week old kitten in traffic. The kitten is doing well after being rescued from a sewer into which it fled. A $250 reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest, which could earn the perp a $5000 fine and up to three years in jail.
This is a shanda! Living in Maryland, (Baltimore), there are literally dozens of shelters he could have taken it to. I sincerely hope they find the sod, and fine him to the max.
I'm for that. It's a shame how people don't know the proper avenues for dealing with unwanted pets. A fine seems almost too light for that kind of malicious intent.
