RIPLEY, W.Va. (AP) - Jackson County officials say those responsible for dyeing a pair of kittens pink and shaving off their whiskers will be prosecuted on animal cruelty charges.

A couple found the 6-month-old kittens along a road in Ripley this week.

The county’s humane officer, Sheila Chambers, tells the Charleston Daily Mail (https://bit.ly/1dPTnek) the kittens are still pink-hued despite efforts to clean their fur.

The local shelter has publicized pictures of the kittens, and some Ripley residents had responded with information on the possible offenders.

Chambers said someone also called in hopes of adopting the kittens.
