Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (The Weekly Vice) - Sticky, the duct tape wrapped cat we featured last week finally found justice Sunday with the arrest of James Davis, 19, who admitted to wrapping the cat in duct tape and dumping her in a Philadelphia yard.
Authorities say investigators with the Humane Law Enforcement agency received an anonymous tip about Davis and that evidence corroborated the tip. When officers spoke with Davis about the incident, he reportedly confessed to abusing the animal.
According to the Pennsylvania SPCA, a reward of $2,000 was offered in exchange for information that led to the arrest of the person responsible for torturing Sticky.
Davis told investigators that incident was out of character for him and that he "didn't know what came over him."
Investigators say Davis told them that he became annoyed at the cat for being in his yard. He then duct taped the cat and left it in his yard for a few hours - but soon grew tired of the cat's screaming. That's when police say he decided to dump the cat in another neighbor's yard.
Officers described Davis as remorseful. The court may order a psychological evaluation in the event of a trial.
Davis was booked into jail on charges of cruelty to animals and possessing an instrument of crime.
