Actor Wahl helping out with cat abuse case
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) -- Retired Hollywood actor Ken Wahl is joining the effort to find whoever glued a cat to Interstate 90 in southwestern Minnesota.
Wahl said today he is donating to the reward fund the Golden Globe award he won for the 1980s TV show "Wiseguy." He said he is appalled by the abuse and also worried about a connection between animal abuse and people going on to commit even worse crimes against humans.
Travelers found the cat on Dec. 18 and brought it to the Second Chance Rescue Center across the South Dakota border in Sioux Falls. The 7-month-old orange tabby had been glued to the road by its feet and nose, and it died five days later.
Rescue Center Director Rosey Quinn says donations coming in from across the country have pushed the reward fund to about $12,000. The reward money is for information leading to a conviction in the case.
