NEW CASTLE, Pa. —
A severely burned cat roaming the streets of New Castle was rescued after a neighborhood effort Sunday.
A neighbor told Channel 11 News that they had been trying to help the cat for a week, but were unable to capture it.
After several days, one neighborhood man was able to safely capture the cat and take it to an area vet.
"It's just a shame that somebody would want to do that to any animal," said Bob Rowell, who rescued the cat.
Police suspect the cat was strung up and then set on fire.
The veterinarian said it’s amazing the cat, now named “Hope,” survived. She is expected to make a full recovery.
Police are working on finding the person who set the cat on fire.
