Idaho: Coeur d'Alene police searching for the person who tortured and tried to drown a cat in diesel fuel. Cat had oil in his lungs and did not survive

IDAHO -- A cat was brought into a Coeur d'Alene animal hospital after suffering horrific abuse and torture and now police are trying to find the person or persons responsible.

The cat was soaked in diesel fuel when it was brought into Alpine Animal Hospital on Saturday.

Employees at the clinic said the cat had bruises, wounds, and deep cuts around his neck that were consistent with an attempted hanging. The cat's body temperature was so low that it didn't even register on a thermometer.

Despite giving the cat baths, IV fluids, and medication, he was still having abnormal breathing and seizures, so the decision was made to put it down.

The hospital said the cat also had oil in his lungs.

The woman who brought the cat in found it on her porch in the area of Montana Avenue and 13th Street, however, it did not have any identification.

Last spring, another cat was found in the same area with a blow dart stuck in its face. That cat survived, but despite a $5,000 reward offered from PETA, no suspects were arrested.

Anyone with information on this horrific case is asked to call Coeur d'Alene Police at 208-769-2320.
