MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – The Animal Welfare League of Montgomery County has confirmed the death of the cat found burned alive near the Crawfordsville airport on Wednesday, Jan. 11.
AWL first made the announcement on its Facebook page on Sunday night. It said the cat was recovering, but she died after her condition took a turn for the worse.
The cat, named Phoenix, was found Wednesday after witnesses saw a bright flame in a cornfield on County Road 500 South in New Market.
