if you didn't immediately get the headline reference, please give a listen to Nothing's Shocking by Jane's Addiction. - To say Patchogue is a diverse community is certainly an understatement. There are a broad range of morons and assholes that play a far greater roll in the area's stagnant state of being than whoever is being scapegoated this week. Here's the latest headline concerning this town.

Reward for info on hanged cat in Patchogue


4:54 PM EST, December 12, 2008

A cat was found with a rope around its neck in a Patchogue backyard this week and a veterinarian's necropsy shows that the animal died of asphyxiation by hanging, Suffolk SPCA officials said.

The agency is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of the cat's killers.

"The cat suffered quite a bit," said Chief Roy Gross of the Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Suffolk County police officers found the cat frozen with the rope on its neck in a backyard near Ocean Avenue and Montauk Highway on Monday night, Gross said. The circumstances of the hanging show that it was done recently, Gross said. "It doesn't appear it was there for long."

The SPCA is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest, and asks the public's help identifying those responsible.

"It is very barbaric and we will aggressively investigate this to find the person or persons responsible," Gross said.

"Acts of cruelty like this will not be tolerated in this county."

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Suffolk County SPCA at 631-382-7722. All calls will be kept confidential.

Gross said, "Due to the horrific way this cat died, we are posting a reward in the hopes that someone out there knows what happened to this poor animal."
