The Mohave County Sheriff's Office will be investigating the cat buried alive in concrete in Colorado City, spokeswoman Trish Carter tells New Times.

The cat was found buried up to its head in set concrete, inside a metal pipe on the property of former Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints member Isaac Wyler.

Andrew Chatwin, a fellow ex-church member who's been at odds with the town -- an FLDS-haven along the Arizona/Utah border -- captured video of the cat cemented inside the pipe, as well as his attempted rescue of the cat.

This video was shot on May 31, weeks before the town was sued by the Justice Department for its police force's alleged discrimination against non-FLDS members, and before the Mohave County Sheriff's Office started patrolling the town.

As you can imagine, Chatwin thinks FLDS members are responsible for putting the cat on the property of fellow ex-FLDS member Isaac Wyler.

Chatwin says people he believes to be FLDS members have been using dead cats to mess with him for quite some time, since he's no longer a member of the church.

The Justice Department also thinks FLDS and the police force -- known as the "Marshal's Office" -- has done some creepy things to animals over the years.

Among the many, many instances of strange behavior in the community are a few tales of animal abuse, including in 2001, when convicted child rapist/former FLDS leader Warren Jeffs banned dogs from Colorado City and the neighboring town of Hildale, Utah.

Jeffs' dog ban included and order for the marshals to go door-to-door asking residents to turn over their dogs. The marshals proceeded to bring the dogs to a "slaughter pit" near the towns, shooting and killing every single one, according to the lawsuit.

"Two of the Marshal's Deputies involved in this incident remain employed by the Marshal's Office," the lawsuit states.

As for the Sheriff's Office, Carter says deputies haven't made any arrests in the town since they started patrolling a week ago.

I don't quite get the part where it says Warren Jeffs banned dogs, and his dog ban meant that all the dogs in the city were taken out and shot.  Excuse me, but where exactly were the police force when this insanity took place?  The rapist/child abuser Jeffs "ordered" the marshalls to collect all the dogs and kill them?  So the city is run by some mentally ill psychotic rapist, and the cops sit by like a bunch of panty-waists shaking in their boots and do whatever the psychotic wants?  This would be hilarious if it were not so tragic.  So the mother&&^%% Jeffs cult members take a helpless kitten and encase it in cement and the asshat "police force" can do nothing but laugh about it and say "If it were me I would have tossed dirt on it."  Wow, the world is going to know about this, it is going viral, that there are idiots like these that actually exist and it's not some "reality show".  Let the idiot FDLS people come out here to Detroit, we'll set their heads on straight.  Or better yet I think myself and some of my friends need to hop on our Harleys and pay a few visits to the FDLS, obviously the clowns on the "police force" there don't know their ass from a hole in the ground and need some help getting their priorities straight.

nope take all the elders AND the Marshal's office to the slaughter pit and bury them up to their necks in cement, see how they like it. Maybe on the third of fourth day if they aren't dead shoot them then.

what really should be done is the lobbyists that support the FLDS (that are all LDS people) should be disallowed to be lobbyists, or be required to publicly state their names and that they support animal abuse, sexual abuse of minors, and child brides.

btw when I got a new company for my car insurance I am glad that I didn't use State Farm, since apparently it supports child rape, child brides, and animal abuse.

Ask  ALL of the candidates for public office in Arizona where they stand on the Colorado City situation.   It's a fair question and should be used to weed out the wingnuts from our pool of possible elected officials

 Your idea is in the right place as well as your heart, but the first two petitions went to a blank page, and the third didn't readily have a petition on "Thomas" the kitty either.
