Cambridge cruelty

Burned cat is most recent victim; executive director of Humane Society is worried.

“Gandhi once said that the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the ways its animals are treated,” Deekon said.

“We need to get through to somebody.”

Deekon believes the act was carried out by children “wanting a laugh” — a possibility that disgusts her. The cat’s claws were fully extended, which meant it was fighting for its life.

“I’m concerned about what we’re doing to our animals,” Deekon said.

Deekon said staff members are working overtime lately because so many acts of animal cruelty are being reported.
