- California, USA -
The filthy animal abuser of this animal cruelty case is 29-year-old DARION K. HACKETT (DOB July 7, 1991).
The victim of this heinous crime is the 11-month-old Calico cat, now named Bow, pictured below.
HACKETT was finally arrested on Thursday, March 25, following an investigation, conducted by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA), that linked him to the furbaby’s microchip.
spcaLA reports that on October 18, 2020, compassionate citizens rescued Bow from a dumpster located at a Lawndale apartment building.
A medical examination revealed that Bow suffered from severe injuries to both hind legs.
As reported by spcaLA, “Further examinations by spcaLA veterinary staff confirmed that Bow had sustained a previous, poorly healed fracture to her right hind leg, and a recent fracture to her left hind leg. In addition, Bow suffered from a dislocation of her right hip, bruising of her lung, broken teeth, as well as tears and abrasions to her ears.”
spcaLA began rehabilitating Bow.
The sweet soul “underwent surgery to repair the injuries in her hind legs, which required an excision of the right femoral head and neck, and stabilizations of the bones in the right and left legs”, said spcaLA.
For the last five months Bow has been rehabilitating in a foster care with a spcaLA volunteer.
Bow is now ready to be adopted.
Her life matters, HACKETT’s does not!
Bow deserves nothing less than a loving family who will love her and spoil her and show her that not all humans out there are as trashy as HACKETT!
HACKETT was taken into custody and booked by the Los Angeles Police Department Gang and Narcotics Division, Fugitive Warrant Section.
He was charged with two felony counts of animal cruelty, and two misdemeanor counts of permitting an injured animal to go without veterinary care.
HACKETT was immediately released on his own recognizance and is scheduled to be arraigned in the Los Angeles County Superior Court in Torrance on July 22, 2021.
If convicted as charged, this trashy individual could face up to four years and eight months in Los Angeles County Jail.
