Reward offered for information on kitten thrown from van.

An anonymous donor is offering a $1000 reward for information on the person who allegedly threw a kitten out of a moving van in Quinns Rocks on Monday 29 December at approximately 3.20pm.

The donor contacted RSPCA WA and offered the reward as she was angry and distressed about the incident and wanted the person caught to ensure they cannot do this to any other kittens.

RSPCA WA CEO David van Ooran said it was a very kind gesture and typifies the response of the community to this person's action.

"This type of behaviour is offensive and the community has been shocked and sickened that any person could do this to a defenceless kitten.

"RSPCA WA needs your help to identify the van occupants, we need details to investigate and are hoping a member of the public may be able to assist us.

"Any information you have about this incident or the occupants of the van is worth providing to the RSPCA WA, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem.

"If you have any information please call 1300 CRUELTY (1300 278 3589).

"If the information you provide leads to an offender being charged and convicted you may be eligible for the reward," Mr van Ooran said.


The incident occurred on Monday 29 December 2014 at approximately 3.20pm, the vehicle is a small white van with solid rear panels (no windows) which was travelling south on Marmion Avenue, Quinns Rocks, just before the roundabout at Hester Avenue. Allegedly, a passenger was seen throwing a black and white kitten out of the window.
