MOSS POINT, Miss. (AP) - The Jackson County District Attorney’s Office has joined Moss Point police in the search for whoever is behind a viral video showing a man pouring what appears to be a hot liquid on a cat trapped in a small cage.

Moss Point police tell WLOX-TV (https://bit.ly/2i0av4u ) that the video was taken at a specific home in town, and that investigators are working to find out who owns the animal, who recorded the video, and who posted it to social media.

District Attorney Tony Lawrence said when the investigation is complete, the evidence will be turned over to a grand jury for review.

Lawrence said that what’s depicted in the video is “disturbing and cruel.”
