Nearly three weeks after someone tossed four kittens and a mother cat onto the freeway, the case is unsolved and a newly increased $7,500 reward remains unclaimed.
The cats were thrown onto Interstate 15 in Davis County from a moving pickup truck on Oct. 31. A woman saw the incident and circled back around, where she found two surviving kittens. The mother cat and the other kittens died.
The Humane Society of the United States announced Tuesday that it is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in the case. In an email, the society's Utah director, Sundays Hunt, called the incident "an appalling act of cruelty."
