A cat named Jack who had recently gone missing in The Rock was found days later skewered on a barbed wire fence.
Alongside him were two other cats who had also been killed.
To help prevent other animals from enduring similar abuse, PETA is negotiating with an outdoor advertiser to put up this billboard urging everyone to keep cats indoors:
In addition to being tortured and killed by cruel people, cats who are allowed to roam outdoors risk being hit by cars, being poisoned, contracting fatal diseases and becoming lost.
“The horrific abuse that Jack endured is a reminder that it’s never safe to let our companion animals outdoors unattended, even for ‘just a minute’. Cats count on us to protect them, and the best way to do that is by keeping them safe indoors with the rest of the family.”
– PETA Associate Director of Campaigns Ashley Fruno
