Kittens in a Bag

The Danville Area Humane Society is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who put three four-week old gray tabby kittens in a paper bag, then twisted the top shut, and left the bag on the side of the road in the Bryant Avenue area of Danville.  Fortunately, a local citizen found them and brought them to the shelter.

The kittens were weak and scared, but are expected to recover.

During the spring and summer months, we see a marked increase in animals being abandoned in Danville and Pittsylvania County.  We remind everyone that abandoning an animal on public roads or property is a Class 1 misdemeanor, and is punishable by confinement in jail for not more than twelve months and a fine of not more than $2,500, either or both.

Any citizen who has any information about these kittens is urged to call the Danville Area Humane Society at 799-5306.  Callers may remain anonymous.
