LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A cat that was found tortured to death has sparked outrage at Metro Animal Services.

The cat was found dead Friday near the corner of Crums Lane and Cane Run Road in the parking lot of Roses Department Store. The feline had broken hind legs and severe head injuries. The cat was so badly mutilated its gender couldn't be determined.

Justin Scally, director of Louisville Metro Animal Services said they are actively trying to find the person responsible.

"We do periodically get these types of cases where there's intentional abuse," said Scally, "and it's not going to be accepted and we're going to investigate this as thoroughly as possible."

If you have any information, you're asked to call Metro Animal Services at 502-363-6609.
