Cats thrown from moving car on Stoughton Road

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison police were called after a 24-year-old driver witnessed an object being thrown from a moving vehicle on S. Stoughton Road.

The incident happened last Monday, March 24.  The caller originally thought a plastic bag was thrown from the car, then learned it was someone's deaf pet cat, Tubbs.  The man who reported the incident stated he was driving behind a smaller dark vehicle, traveling at speeds around 50 mph.  After a white object was thrown, a second item was tossed out of the other vehicle's passenger window.  Turns out, both objects were cats, Tubbs and Mambo.

The caller stopped and picked up both cats, knowing immediately to take them to a local animal clinic where his mother works.  The veterinary hospital staff discovered both cats had been micro chipped.  With that, the owner was identified.  Rather than contact the owner, staff called MPD and the Dane County Humane Society.

An officer made contact with the owner of Mambo and Tubbs, a 62-year-old woman.  She began to cry after learning what happened.  The woman stated the cats use a cat door on her home and she had reported her pets missing, but had no idea who would treat them in such a cold and callous manner.  She is very thankful to be getting them back.
