A sad story is breaking out of Naugatuck, Naugatuck Police have taken to social media in hopes of identifying a witness to a case of alleged animal cruelty. The owner of the vehicle is wanted after allegedly taking the lives of two kittens.

Do you cry when an animal dies on tv? Say the words 'Old Yeller' to your grandparents and see if they get sad. I cannot understand it, and I despise those who harm animals. I want to help.

The Naugatuck Police Department is asking for the public's assistance in identifying the owner of the maroon sedan you see in the photo above, and the owner of a black vehicle not pictured above that may have witnessed the cruel act.
