  • An investigation into how three kittens ended up badly burned Nov. 12 has stalled for lack of clues, city officials said.

    The Galveston County Daily News reports the incident has some worried that a mentally unstable person is at-large in the city.

    League City Animal Shelter employees found a cardboard box at the shelter, 821 N. Kansas Ave., at 2:46 p.m. Nov. 12, according to the police incident report.

    Inside the box were three severely injured kittens that someone apparently had set ablaze, according to the newspaper report.

    “They were tortured,” shelter Manager Kim Schoolcraft said. “It’s pretty horrific.”

    The kittens are recovering, but they will have lasting scars, she said.

    Police are treating the incident as a criminal case of cruelty to non-livestock animals and listed fire or an incendiary device as the weapon, a report stated.

    League City police don’t have a suspect, and the investigation is inactive because officers have no leads to pursue, department spokesman Kelly Williamson said.

    “We just have nothing on it whatsoever,” he said.

    The kittens required intensive care to survive, Friends of the League City Animal Shelter said in a letter to its donors.

    The organization stated in the letter it would pay for the expense of saving the kittens.

    Marie Havican, an officer in the organization, continues to treat the kittens’ burns to prevent infection and to help them heal, the organization said.

    Someone in League City knows something about what happened that Sunday afternoon, said Monica Millican, president of the Friends of League City Animal Shelter.

    “This is a psychopath in the making,” she said. “This is horrible. This does not need to happen in our city.”
