Hawkins County Animal Cruelty

Three Hawkins County children are taking a stand against animal cruelty after they say they witnessed two men throw a cat over a bridge to die. The trio says they were walking along a road in Mooresburg when they saw a car stop in the street.”You could hear it slam on its brakes down the road and you could hear the cat meowing really loud,” says Shamia Chapman. That’s when the kids say they saw the men tie rope and a rock around the cat’s neck, then throw it over the bridge into the water below. The kids say they ran from the road to the underside of the bridge to try and save the cat’s life.
