Brooks County, GA (WALB) -

A second cat has died after an appalling case of animal abuse in Brooks County. Just before Christmas, someone attached fireworks to three cats and lit them.

One was so severely injured it had to be euthanized right away. Another cat died yesterday.

The Brooks County Sheriff's Office is still investigating. They're going door-to-door at the Eaglewood Estates mobile home park where the incident occurred.

The third cat, Blackie, remains in good condition at Baytree Animal Hospital in Valdosta.  Dr. Amanda Hall tells us, "Unfortunately, Little Jim did pass away yesterday, and you know we're still looking for the people that did this. And any information that anybody has out there--please call the Sheriff's department in Brooks County."

You can reach Keith Anderson at the Brooks County Sheriff's Office at (229) 263-7558. The sheriff's office and the National Humane Society are offering rewards in the case.
