His disappearance prompted a massive search on the ground and from the air.

Cat with severed tail tossed ‘like trash’ at dump in Cranbrook

TMTVNEWS.COM, Cranbrook BC Canada – She was discarded at the dump, her legs tied together, bleeding from several wounds, not moving but alive.

Her tail had been severed and she was extremely dehydrated and emaciated. Fortunately, a Good Samaritan found the black cat, named Malala, and took her straight to the East Kootenay BC SPCA Branch, where she was immediately rushed to a veterinarian for emergency care.

“She was bleeding a lot from her tail, which had been cut off, and she had several open wounds on her feet, legs and head,” says BC SPCA East Kootenay Branch manager Brenna Baker. “It horrifies me to think that someone might do something like this to any animal, then leave her at the dump, suffering and in pain, tossed away like so much trash.”

The vet cleaned Malala’s wounds, performed surgery on her tail and gave her fluids. Now, she’s recovering in the warmth of the SPCA shelter, under the attention and care of staff and volunteers who hope to give her a chance at a better life in a loving, forever home.

“She is such a sweet pea and so full of love,” Baker says. “She’s got a long road to recovery, but we’re grateful to the man who spotted her at the Elko transfer station and wasted no time getting her to us.”

The cost of Malala’s medical care is expected to be nearly $1,200. A non-profit organization, the BC SPCA relies primarily on public donations to help British Columbia’s most vulnerable animals. If you can help Malala and other animals like her at the BC SPCA East Kootenay Branch, visit spca.bc.ca/medicalemergency or drop off donations in person at 3339 Highway 3 and 95, Cranbrook.

If anyone has any information on how Malala came to be at the Elko transfer station, they are encouraged to call the BC SPCA cruelty hotline, at 1-855-622-7722.

Special weather statement in effect for: Boundary, West Kootenay, Slocan Lake, Arrow Lakes, East Kootenay, Kootenay Lake, Elk Valley, Columbias

TMTVNEWS.COM, (Environment Canada Issued) Snow then Arctic air and blowing snow causing winter travel conditions beginning Monday.

The first Arctic outbreak of the season will bring Arctic air, blowing snow and difficult winter driving conditions to the Southern Interior of British Columbia beginning Monday.

An intensifying upper trough of low pressure over the Pacific will develop into a powerful upper low near the Washington coastline by Tuesday morning. As the deepening trough approaches, light snow will spread over the Southern Interior Monday.

At the same time, an Arctic high pressure system in Northern British Columbia will intensify and push Arctic air southward. By early Tuesday morning, the leading edge of the Arctic air – the Arctic front – will be poised to traverse the Southern Interior. As the coldest air of the season arrives, temperatures will fall, windchills will worsen and poor visibility in snow will be further reduced in blowing snow.

Snowfalls of 5 to 15 centimetres are possible by late Monday. The Columbia regions will receive the most snow and further accumulations are expected everywhere on Tuesday. Snowfall warnings may be issued.

The storm will end by Tuesday evening and the Southern Interior will settle into an extended period (4-6 days) of chilly but otherwise weather-less winter days.
