Cat with duct-taped paws tossed out of car in Colwood: SPCA

The B.C. SPCA is investigating after two men allegedly dumped an injured cat out of a car window in Colwood on Tuesday.

A woman was walking in the 3000 block of Pickford Road about 11:30 a.m. when she saw two white men in a grey sedan pull over, dump a cat out of the car window and drive away.

“The geriatric cat appeared to be dragging her hind legs, and upon inspection, the Good Samaritan discovered that the cat had duct tape wrapped around her stomach and her hind legs,” said Erika Paul, B.C. SPCA senior animal protection officer.

The cat was taken to a nearby veterinary clinic and treated for a large lesion on her side. The vet is also trying to determine what caused the injury in her back legs, Paul said.

The woman was unable to get the car’s licence plate, but Paul is hoping there were other witnesses. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call the B.C. SPCA animal cruelty hotline at 1-855-622-7722.
