SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A $5,000 reward is waiting for anybody that can provide authorities with information that leads to an arrest in the case of a cat that was found mutilated in a small town near Zion National Park.

The Humane Society said Friday it is offering a $2,500 reward, matching the $2,500 already being offered by the cat’s owner, Sherry Teresa.

A news release from the Humane Society says the Zion’s Veterinary Clinic in Hurricane confirms the 11-year-old cat was killed by a person and not a wild animal.

Utah Humane Society executive director Gene Baierschmidt says what happened to the cat is despicable and can’t be tolerated.

The cat, named Khepri, was found earlier this month by Teresa in the town of Springdale. Springdale police are investigating.
