Perkins says the Humane Society is committed to vigorously pursuing the case and will recommend prosecution to the fullest extent of the law:
Anyone with information should contact the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office, at 573-378-5481. Perkins says the cats, named Patches and Licorice, are expected to recover, though one may lose a leg because of his injuries.
The Humane Society is accepting donations toward Patches and Licorice’s care.
