Busan Geum-Jeong: Cat hanging on a barbed-wire fence

[Update on 2/26/2014]

This is an update on this case from Busan KAPCA’s Facebook page on February 26, 2014.

This is an update on this case from Busan KAPCA’s Facebook page on February 26, 2014. We have been notified by the Geumjeong Police that this case has been classified as unresolved due to the lack of leads. They stated that they will resume the investigation if any new clues emerge. Since this happened at a remote area it seems that they are having difficulties locating witnesses or finding clues. If you have any information about this case, please contact us. Anyway, the heinous animal abuser will still be living amongst us as if nothing happened. There’s no guarantee that this animal abuser would not cross over from hurting animals to hurting humans. This is just terrible….

On November 23rd, 2013, our planning team was on their way to investigate a dog farm that we were tipped off when they accidentally found this at a secluded spot.
It was a dead body of a cat hanging on a barbed-wire fence.
It was so gruesome we could not believe our eyes….
It wasn’t just a typical killing…it was a body of a cat that was intentionally hung by the rope on a barbed-wire fence.
It was a criminal act of someone deliberately intended to kill…
Moreover, it was hung on the barbed-wire fence as if to show it off…
The perpetrator must be a psychopath to commit this cruel act…
Our planning team leader who has seen just about everything trembled with indignation at the horrendous sight of the dead cat.
The claws of the cat hanging on to the fence seems to show vividly the terror and agony of the cat at the time of her death in excruciating pain while desperately struggling to live….
What kind of human being, we can’t even call this person a human being, could have committed this monstrous criminal act?
Below are the photos from the scene.
Warning: Graphic. Viewer discretion is advised.

This is the body of cat tied up on barbed-wire fence.

This seems to be an entrance gate.

At first we couldn’t be believe our eyes but sure enough it was a cat and she was already dead. It was horrible.

The cat was dead with ropes around her neck and it seemed that some time has passed since she died.

Can you see her claws hanging on to the fence? It seems that she desperately struggled to live… It leaves us speechless imagining how she died in terrible agony.

What kind of psycho would do such a thing?
Is this something a normal human being would do?

We called the police at the scene and even requested the crime scene investigators hoping that fingerprints or forensic clues might be revealed through identification.

The police took down the cat from the fence.

Even the police were tearful at the brutality of this scene.
Crime scene investigators came and conducted examination but we were told that no fingerprints were found to the time passed since the crime occurred and even the rope could not be used for identification because it’s made with slippery material.
The investigation will be conducted by the Busan Geum-Jeong Police.
We went around and asked the neighbors to find witness and someone told us that he saw the cat about a week ago.
That means this cat died at least a week ago and she’s been left hanging on this fence since then.
If our planning team did not happen find her, how long would this cat be left here like this?
Thinking about this cat make us cry and boil with anger at the perpetrator.
What in the world has happen to this cat?
Why did she have to die in such an agony like this as if she was being executed…as if used as a display?
The perpetrator must be captured.
Even though Geum-Jeong Police has started the investigation we need your help to make sure a proper and thorough investigation is conducted.
Please ask Geum-Jeong Police for a proper investigation so that this animal abuser will be captured.
The investigation is in progress but please send messages to the police requesting full cooperation in order to prevent this case from fizzling out as merely an animal cruelty case.

Sample letter

Dear Busan Geum-Jeong Police Chief Doo-Hwan Yang and Korean National Police Agency,
Please capture and punish the heinous animal abuser who killed a cat by rope around the neck and left it hanging on a barbed-wire fence in Geum-Jeong, Busan.
양두환 부산 금정 경찰서장님과 경찰청께,
부산 금정구 고양이를 목매달아 죽이고 방치한 극악사건 살해범을 잡아 꼭 처벌해주시길 바랍니다.

We were told that this cat will be sent to the district office and disposed of by their sanitation department. So our planning team who were there at the scene held an individual funeral for her using money out of their own pockets.
We wanted the cat to feel the human compassion as she leaves this world for the last time…
We also wanted her to forget about the suffering inflicted by human being and rest in peace at last.

Her ashes will be placed at our member’s home for awhile and then will be scattered at a nice place.
For this cat to rest in peace, a proper funeral was important but most of all this subhuman animal abuser who perpetrated this crime must be captured.
Only after that this cat can rest in peace in heaven. So please help us!
Please help us capture this heinous animal abuser.
This is a rural secluded area so to find a witness we plan to offer a reward and put up a banner.
Please help us capture and punish this criminal. This crime must never be repeated again.
But most of all please pray that this cat will finally rest in peace.

    I really wish and hope that the despicable individual who did such a cruel, senseless and unnecessary act will be caught and face exemplar punishment. This kind of actions show how inhumane some people can be. And one of us can be his/her next target, given the lack of consideration for life and the evil thoughts that surely cross this sick, perverted mind!!

    Perhaps the kind of person who did this is the same kind of person who would torture a dog to death to make it taste better. Thank you for all you are doing on behalf of animals in Korea, and for the beautiful compassion you showed this cat after his or her death. We are with you, from all over the world.
