SHARON, Pa (WKBN) – The Humane Society of Mercer County is looking for information regarding an animal cruelty case.
According to Chief Paul Tobin, the agency received a message on Saturday about video circulating of Sharon Middle School students engaging in animal cruelty acts to a mother cat and her kittens.
Reports said that all the cats died. Reportedly, the kids continued to mutilate the bodies of the cats after they died. Tobin says the video was allegedly being sent around via Snapchat or TikTok. No one with the agency has been able to obtain the video.
Humane Agents are actively investigating. They have spoken with multiple people about the case, but have not had anyone come forward with the video. Tobin says they have multiple people of interest that they need to speak with.
