Dumpster kittens likely victims of animal cruelty

CHICKASHA —

 

A litter of kittens was found yesterday afternoon in a dumpster at Whispering Pines Apartments, which is most likely a case of animal cruelty Chickasha Animal Shelter Supervisor James Kasper said.

"It's always possible that their mom gave birth to the cats in there, but it's more likely that someone threw them in there," Kasper said.

Given that the dumpster receives a heavy amount of human traffic and that it constantly has its contents emptied, most cats would opt to give birth else where.

There were seven cats in total recovered from the dumpster. Kasper said he and his staff will start bottle feeding the kittens immediately.

"I don't know whether or not they will survive and as far as finding a culprit, it would take someone coming forward to the police with evidence about a possible a perpetrator," Kasper said.

Should the kittens survive the coming weeks, they will be adopted out according to Kasper.
