Reward grows in case of cat glued to road

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The reward fund in the case of a cat found glued to Interstate 90 in southwestern Minnesota has grown to about $10,000.

The reward is for information leading to a conviction in the case, which ended with the cat’s death.

Travelers found the cat on Dec. 18 and brought it to the Second Chance Rescue Center across the South Dakota border in Sioux Falls. The 7-month-old orange tabby had been glued to the road by its feet and nose, and it died five days later.

The reward fund started with a $1,000 donation by an anonymous Yankton man. Rescue Center Director Rosey Quinn saids donations have been coming in since from “all over.” She said she even received a call from Florida.
