Justice for Cat Beaten, Stabbed, & Thrown in Trash

Justice for Cat Beaten, Stabbed, & Thrown in Trash

This alert is no longer active, but here for reference. Animals still need your help.

On the evening of February 21, 2018 in Irvine, California, Tucker, a beautiful, friendly six-year-old orange tabby cat was brutally beaten, stabbed, and thrown in the trash, allegedly by his guardian's angry, drunk boyfriend. Act now to get justice for Tucker!

Tucker's guardian, who we’ll call Amanda (not her real name), got home from a work function around 11 pm the evening of February 21. Her now ex-boyfriend, Hector (Alex) Hernandez, was in town visiting her from the Bay Area. When she arrived home, Alex was very drunk. She didn't see Tucker in the apartment, which was unusual, but not uncommon.

When Amanda awoke the next morning, Tucker wasn't in his usual spot at the foot of her bed. Now very concerned, she started searching the apartment trying to locate him. When she didn't find him inside, she expanded her search to outside. Calling him, she heard a faint cry coming from one of the trash cans. She opened the trash can to find Tucker covered in blood and barely alive. Amanda and Alex rushed Tucker to a local vet for treatment and thankfully they were able to save his life.

On the way to the hospital, Alex confessed to her that he had gotten angry while drunk and beaten and stabbed Tucker. Amanda filed a police report and the police investigated the crime thoroughly, even finding Tucker's blood in the house, but the Orange County District Attorney has now declined to pursue charges.

Please ask the District Attorney to re-open the case, reexamine the evidence, and charge Alex with felony animal cruelty for what he did to poor Tucker. Anyone capable of the brutality that was inflicted on Tucker is likely to commit another heinous act against another defenseless animal - or a person.
