HIS-India made the announcement after it received a video during which a person might be seen setting ablaze the kitten, leading its death.
The Humane Society International-India has announced a gift of Rs 50,000 to anyone providing information resulting in the arrest of an unidentified man who had burnt alive a kitten in Hyderabad.
Anyone providing information resulting in the identification, arrest and conviction of the person within the video are going to be rewarded with Rs 50,000, it said. Those with information can email to [email protected] or out in +91 7674922044.
The video was shared with HIS-India on Twitter. It showed someone setting a kitten ablaze with a lighter.
It looks like an accelerant was used because the kitten is seen immediately catching ablaze which continues to flame without abating. The act happened on grassy land, at night, and there’s no dialogue aside from the kitten crying.
The kitten itself seems as if it had been already weak because it doesn’t plan to run fast or be ready to do anything aside from make weak painful yowls, before dropping to the bottom during a matter of seconds and taking its last, pain-filled breath, the organization said.
It said drawing the eye of the enforcement agencies, prosecutors and therefore the community in cases involving allegations of cruelty to animals is an important step in protecting the community.
It is well-documented that animal cruelty could also be a symbol of great psychological distress. It often indicates that a toddler has either experienced violence firsthand or is in danger of becoming violent towards the people. And such kind of behavior demonstrated that violent offenders frequently have a childhood and adolescent histories of great and repeated animal cruelty.”
Some research has shown consistent patterns of animal cruelty among perpetrators of more common violence, including maltreatment , spouse abuse and elder abuse. We must recognise that children who deliberately abuse animals or mention animal abuse reception are crying out for help and wish immediate attention, HIS-India said.
That someone could set fire to alittle , helpless kitten, and burn it alive means humanity has failed its moral test. nobody who can escape with doing this may stop just at this. what percentage animals, or humans, have suffered this fate at the hands of this person before, or will after, is unknown,” said Alokparna Sengupta, director of HIS-India.
