The Charleston Animal Society is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a person accused of throwing live kittens from a moving car on Rivers Avenue in North Charleston on Friday morning.

A woman driving saw cars swerving around a kitten in the middle of the road, then saw kittens being thrown from the windows of a vehicle ahead of her, according to the Animal Society. The vehicle was described as a dark gold Dodge Stratus.

One kitten was run over and killed, but it's unclear what happened to the rest, the Animal Society says.

“We are in touch with North Charleston Animal Control about this case and they are investigating,” said Aldwin Roman of CAS. “This is a terrible case of cruelty and we want to catch whoever is responsible.”

The Animal Society says the witness called 911 and spoke with a police officer after bringing the body of one of the kittens to CAS headquarters.
