OSKALOOSA, Iowa (AP) - A $5,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person who sealed a cat in a plastic tote abandoned at a south-central Iowa city dump.

The Oskaloosa Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1TChJpW ) that a woman found the cat on May 5 near the Oskaloosa City Brush Dump inside the taped-shut tote and called the local animal shelter.

Shelter officials, who have named the cat Cecilia, say the cat had been trapped inside the tote for several days, crouched in its own waste. The cat is now at the shelter and recovering.

The Human Society of the United States is offering the reward for information on whoever left the cat to die.

Oskaloosa police are investigating.
