Easter Violence: Cat Crucified in Geneseo, Illinois

     Where would someone get the idea to nail a cat to a telephone pole?  As the old songs says: "You must be carefully taught."       

     In the midst of the Christian celebration of the crucifixion and alleged resurrection of Jesus last weekend, someone in rural Illinois, outside of Geneseo, not far from where I grew up, crucified a cat.  We're not talking violence against Easter candy, but an actually living, defenseless cat being nailed to wooden pole.

       The Quad City Times reports:

     Geneseo resident Andrea Bristol said she discovered the cat "hanging face down just by one foot," on Ropp Road about 5 p.m. Monday, on her way home from work.  At first, she thought it was a raccoon climbing down the pole, but"something just didn't seem right,"Ms. Bristol said.  She stopped and found the gray cat with a nail through a hind paw. It was bleeding and had patches of fur missing. "It just made me sick to my stomach," she said.  She thought the cat was dead until she heard a faint wheezing noise and then called theHenry County Sheriff's Department. An animal control officer took the cat to Miller Veterinary Service in Atkinson.

     In this news report by WQAD 8 the beaten and tortured feline, left to die, is given a 50/50 chance of recovery.  Happy Easter!
