Warning Graphic Image

 

Do not scroll down if you are faint of heart because this image is just heart breaking.

When the Rescuers were trying to catch the bobcat, he was running on all four paws, even though both front legs had been chewed off.

The bobcat kitten had obviously been struggling to survive for days, as the bones were completely dried out.

It’s gut wrenching to see an animal in such condition, but this is the reality of trapping, and it has to stop.

 

Contact your lawmaker at CatLaws.com and ask them to ban fur trapping and fur farming in the U.S.

    I just can't imagine how anyone can be so cruel. What this baby suffered is unforgivable. Did you know in Illinois they can sell wild cat meat?
