The Hawaiian Humane Society is offering a $5,000 reward for any tips leading to the arrest of a male suspect who appeared to throw a cat off a ledge in a video posted on social media.
Humane Society spokeswoman Allison Andrade Gammel said community members donated money to the cause.
The Humane Society is asking the public to help identify the suspect featured in the video, which was posted on social media, but has been taken down.
Gammel said that it is an animal cruelty case, which could be classified up to as a Class C felony. She called it a “horrific video.”
The Instagram and Facebook posts were reposted on Stolen Stuff Hawaii’s Facebook page where some members suggested names of possible suspects.
Gammel said they have leads pointing to an individual.
Humane Society investigators are deputized by the Honolulu Police Department.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Humane Society’s emergency line at 356-2250.
