Mice Kill 100 Cats

by | 19th, December 2008

MICE chew through cables and kill cats:

Close to 100 cats, three dogs and several rabbits and rodents perished in the blaze at Durham Region Humane Society’s animal shelter in Oshawa.

“It’s been crazy here,” said Richards. “People are very upset and some people have just been crying on the phone.”

Donations poured in to their website and offers of temporary locations, food and supplies kept staff hopping all day…

“How many coffee mugs and boxes of chocolates do they really need?” said Abramson. “We thought this way would benefit the little people with four legs.”

Owners are upset:

“I’m really angry about this,” Wayne Webster said. “The victims in this tragedy were innocent and helpless animals …”

Richards said the site is unsupervised at night because the shelter can’t afford overnight staff.

And mice and cat’s have history. But did Butch have to die?
