WEST SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – An arrest has been made stemming from a disturbing case of animal cruelty earlier this month when a cat was set on fire at a West Sacramento park.
Police on Wednesday said they arrested a 17-year-old boy from West Sacramento for felony cruelty to animals. His name was not released because of his age.
On May 2, police received a report that a cat was on fire in Circle Park. Yolo County Animal Control officers responded and took the cat to UC Davis Veterinary Hospital for treatment, but the animal had to be euthanized because of the severity of the burns.
Doctors treating the cat determined that a possible accelerant was used.
There were no witnesses on scene and no one came forward with information, but a detective from the West Sacramento Police Department was able to establish leads that led to the arrest Wednesday morning, police said.
