On June 24th a witness attended to the Brockville Police Service to report he was leaving the 1000 Islands Mall and travelling east on Parkedale Avenue when he observed a white kitten which he believed was thrown from a vehicle in front of him. In addition he was able to provide officers with dash camera footage of the traffic on Parkedale at the time.
The witness followed the kitten into the Trillium property and brought it to a place of safety where it could be treated for the injuries it suffered during the incident.
Investigators reviewed the Dash camera footage which begins at approximately 7:05 p. m. on June 24th in front on Tim Horton’s on Parkedale, slowing it down and pausing the film. Officers were able to identify pedestrians and vehicles in the area at the time and interview them in relation to the incident. However, after all the interviews were concluded and the footage reviewed in detail, officers were not able to identify the responsible person or vehicle due to the traffic on Parkedale Avenue at the time.
There is some good news on this investigation. Staff at the shelter which “Casper” was taken to recover report he has recovered from his injuries and has been adopted by a caring local family. The “I Am Alive” Shelter and Brockville Police Service would like to thank everyone who assisted in investigation and recovery of Casper.
