International animal rights group PETA is offering a $5,000 (Dh18,350) reward to anyone who can help arrest whoever is behind the horrific mass dumping of cats in a desert in Abu Dhabi.

Appalling Act Sparks Outrage:

Jason Baker, the group’s senior vice president, revealed the reward in a statement to AFP. “PETA Asia is offering a $5,000 reward for info leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever dumped these cats in the desert to die horribly of thirst, starvation, and from the unrelenting heat,” he said.

The discovery of the mass dumping site shook the country, traumatizing rescuers and volunteers. Some 150 cats were found left for dead in Abu Dhabi’s Al Falah desert.

Survival and Tragic Loss:

Rescuers earlier told Khaleej Times that they have managed to save 92 live cats but had found over 60 dead.

Official Investigation Announced:

Emirati authorities announced on Thursday that they had opened an “investigation into the incident of abandoned cats.”

The authorities said all “administrative and legal measures” would be used against the perpetrators of this “inhumane” act.

Social Media Outcry:

Photos and videos showing cats buried in sand or barely able to stand have been shared on social media. AFP was unable to immediately verify their authenticity.
