Police: Crawfordsville man set cat on fire

CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. — One man was arrested after the disturbing discovery of a cat tied up and set on fire near Crawfordsville Municipal Airport.
Noah A. Riley, 19, of Crawfordsville, faces two preliminary charges of animal cruelty, according to a news release from the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.
Riley met with authorities after he saw photos of the cat circulating on social media that showed the animal's singed fur and burned skin, the release states.

A female cat was found tied and burned in a cornfield near the Crawfordsville Municipal Airport.

During an interview with investigators, police say he admitted to his involvement. He is currently being held at Montgomery County Jail on $1,000 cash bond.
A juvenile also has been questioned in the case, and the report has been forwarded to the Montgomery County Prosecutor's Office.
Animal control officer Adam Sperry said he was called Wednesday evening to a home on County Road 500 West.
Residents said they found the cat soaked in gasoline and bound by rope in a nearby field, and they located a firecracker not far from the scene.
Misha Anderson, director of the Animal Welfare League of Montgomery County, told Fox59 in Indianapolis that the cat survived because she landed in a mud puddle that doused the flames.
