ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Humane Society of Missouri's Animal Cruelty Task Force is investigating the death of a kitten.
The animal was found dead Thursday in the front yard of a St. Louis home. A resident who had been feeding the stray came home to find it in a pool of blood on her sidewalk. A rock that may have been used to kill the cat was found nearby.
Humane Society veterinarians believe the male cat was about 8 weeks old and died from a head injury.
The Humane Society says any information will be turned over to police.
