Suspect(s) Unknown - We need your help!
Authorities in Edmonton are investigating a disturbing case of animal abuse. Six cats were rescued from a garbage can, still alive but very dirty and smelling of smoke.
The smell suggests the cats might have been in a fire.
A man out for a walk on Monday heard cries coming from a garbage can on the corner of 66th street and 122nd Avenue -- just one block away from the Humane Society.
The two males and four female cats were brought to the shelter where they've been examined and vaccinated by an animal health technologist.
The Humane Society suspects whoever dumped the cats intended for the animals to be found and admitted to the shelter.
The cats will be taken to the city's Animal Services department before they can be adopted out.
The cats are thin and have some abscesses, "nothing that can't be fixed with a loving, kind home," says Animal Protection Officer Carly Grandysh.
Anyone with information about the cats is being asked to contact the Humane Society's animal protection department. The number is 491-3517.
