POLICE: Search underway for suspects who set a cat on fire

BALTIMORE (WBFF)-- Baltimore police are looking for the group of young men who tortured and killed a cat.

Their heinous actions and abuse caught on camera.

The group of five who all look like teenagers are seen torturing and killing the cat, laughing as they did so.

"I don't want to watch it cause I don't like torture," says Megan Fisher.

It's sickening video that you don't want to watch, but you will want the people caught.

"We're not going to call them juveniles, we're calling them suspects," says Baltimore police detective Donny Moses.

The five are seen prodding a cat with a stick, throwing things at it and lighting it on fire, killing it.

"Regardless of how old they are or how young they are, they did a heinous act," Moses says.

The torture was captured on video lasting 25 minutes.

What's even more disturbing is the five are seen laughing as they act, even pausing to take pictures.

"They were laughing and joking about it," Moses says. "There was no remorse. They didn't have a conscience. They tortured this poor cat to death."

"It makes you think what else would you do?" says Fisher. "If you can kill an animal with your bare hands, you probably could kill a person with your bare hands."

This happened on December 16th at 4:30 in the afternoon behind a house on Harford Road near Echodale Avenue.

Police believe the group lives in the area.

They want everyone to take a good luck at their faces and turn them in.

"they appear to be young, the suspects. Today it was a cat. Tomorrow it's a dog. The next day it's a person," says Moses. "That's how the cycle goes. We need to intervene immediately before things like this gets worse. And they got gratification out of it."

If you recognize any of the suspects you can turn them in by calling Metro CrimeStoppers at 1-866-7 LOCKUP.
