SPOKANE, Wash. -

Earlier this week, we told you about the horrific discovery a Spokane couple made when they found a dead kitten, tightly wrapped in electrical cords, on the side of the road. 

Wesley O’Dell and his wife found a dead kitten on the side of the road, under a pair of shorts.

“It wound up being a little kitten about that big, just wrapped up in phone cords and chargers. It was wrapped so tightly its paw was up along its face and the jaw was ripped down,” O’Dell says.

SCRAPS is investigating, but now PETA is getting involved and offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.

"This community needs to know how this kitten died and whether she was alive when she was wrapped in phone cords, because an animal abuser may be at large and strike again," says PETA Vice President Colleen O'Brien. "PETA urges anyone who has information about who had this kitten in their possession and how she died to come forward now." 

Anyone with information about this case should call SCRAPS at 509-477-2532.
