The cat found beaten and nailed to a utility pole in rural Henry County, Illinois has died, according to the Dana Miller Veterinary clinic, which was caring for the animal.

A spokesperson said the cat, nicknamed "Dutch" passed away last night.

Dutch was found nailed by one paw to the utility pole near Dutch Bottom road outside the town of Geneseo on Monday.

The enormity of the cruelty prompted PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) to issue a $2500 reward for information leading to the person or persons who tortured the cat.

Sounds nice, but PETA probably would have not even tried to heal the cat, and certainly not give it to someone as a pet.

and how many Innocent children were killed before they saw daylight in the same town? I'm sorry, but given the background of children be murdered ‘BY Mother's Choice” daily, leaves me totally uninterested in the fate of cats.

People who do this kind of thing will do the same thing to other living creatures—like people. The lives of Cats and Dogs are of relatively little importance compared to human life, but weeding out those who kill and torture either one is the issue for civilized society.

Some people believe that animals have souls.

The soul is the source of life. How can a cat or other animal have life and consciousness without a soul?

It can sometimes be hard, because psychopathic animal abusers hide beneath the cloak of sanity, and they would not start killing people until they're ready.

For instance, Dennis Lynn Rader, aka BTK (bind, torture and kill), tortured and killed dogs and cats in his youth. That did not stop him from killing 10 people in Wichita, KS, over a period of 17 years.

Must’ve used a nail gun. Or there were two of them. Imagine trying to hold a nail and at the same time position a cat’s paw up against a pole with one hand, while hammering the nail with the other. Cruel and unusual punishment is befitting the SOB that did it.

And, gee, I can say that whilst still being disgusted with the crimes of abortionists.

I’d bet you that if abortionists were surveyed, you’d find a larger than normal amount of animal abuse in their pasts.

Fascinating. While I am no staunch cat-lover, I was taught to respect all life as God's creation and to neither wantonly destroy it nor cause it unnecessary pain.

Are you aware that many of the more notable serial killers got their start torturing animals? Jeff Daumer comes to mind.

Or just a lone guy.

The abuser must have given the poor cat a helluva beating it unconscious prior to nailing it to a pole, most likely with a nailgun.

Not every animal abuser morphed into serial killers, but nearly all serial killers morphed from animal abusers.

It is the most consistent record found in law enforcement criminal databases, FBI studies showed.

Poor, sweet, kitty.

Give me 5 minutes alone with the perp and I would literally tear him from limb from limb and use those limbs to beat him to death.

Cats are more “human” than most human beings are and they are the kindest, most loving and loyalest creatures ever to set foot on Earth.

5 minutes....

This type of sadism is incomprehensible to me. Yes, of course, an animal is far lower on the hierarchy than humans. But to deliberately inflict such suffering is an act of great cruelty. What type of person can get any measure satisfaction from such malice?

“Some people believe that animals have souls.”
I am not one of those people! A soul is not a requisite for animal consciousness, just a chemically based brain and nervous system! The evil of abortion is the robbery of everlasting life united with GOD in Heaven. The unborn, while not being condemned, are also not saved, since they are not baptized! You do not realize the significance of God's covenant with man, that 'together' we shall create human life! Cats are not part of that covenant, and are merely adaptive organism created for the happiness of mankind, and mankind has Dominion over them!

If this story had been about a choice made between saving a baby and saving a cat you would have a point. Compassion that has limits isn't really compassion is it?

When I was a kid I hated cats, but I now have 2 of the furballs in my apt. For someone to do this to an animal that will give your unconditional love, once they get used to you, is beyond what I can understand. This perp, I cannot call him/her a person, should have exactly the same punishment as that poor cat had.

A better question: if animals have souls, why don’t they have spiritual/religious rituals, or for that matter religion in the first place? There’s really only so far you can go on the “everything has a soul” argument before you end up in pantheism.

Animals are referred to in the biblical creation account with the term nephesh which is spelled exactly the same way as the nephesh which is the human soul. Rocks, oceans, trees, &c. never get honored with the term nephesh. Never.

Must’ve used a nail gun. Or there were two of them.

In the initial article they report that the cat had been severely beaten prior to being nailed to the pole and was almost lifeless when rescued. The cat ultimately died from brain swelling. They must catch the criminal who did this before the perp moves on to people.

I don't put the death of the cat in front of the death of a human. But did it occur to you the bastard who did this will stop at cats?
