UPDATE:

Yesterday, RSPCA ACT Inspectors asked the public for help on another horrific case involving a severely burned kitten that was dumped at the Weston shelter last Thursday night.

RSPCA ACT can now confirm that briefs of evidence against two people are being compiled to be submitted to DPP for prosecution in relation to this case.

Chief Executive Tammy Ven Dange thanked the community for helping RSPCA ACT Inspectors, “We are thankful that both the media and the greater Canberra community were so quick to share this story.  As a result, we will be able to pursue some level of justice for the horrible injuries this poor kitten suffered.” 

Please note that no further information can be disclosed about this matter because it is now being treated as an open prosecution case.
