BCSO still investigating act of animal cruelty

From staff reports

The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating an act of animal cruelty last month at the Magnolia Park Apartments in Burton. The subjects responsible have not yet been identified.

On Nov. 23, Beufort County Animal Services responded to Magnolia Park Apartments at 314 Laurel Bay Road regarding a stray cat on property. Animal control officers then set a trap for the cat.

When the animal control officers returned to retrieve the trap Nov. 24, they found it was missing.

Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the apartment complex and, along with animal control officers, found the trap submerged in a pond on the property; the stray cat was found dead inside the trap.

It was later confirmed the cause of the cat’s death was drowning.

The Hilton Head Human Association is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrests of those responsible.

Anyone who has information is encouraged to contact Sgt. Dario Sosa at 843-255-3435 or Crime Stoppers of the Lowcountry at 843-554-1111, if wishing to remain anonymous.
