Social media users have made their voices heard about recent incidents in their area. One video shows a pit bull shaking a black-and-white cat with its mouth. The video drew the attention of local animal rescue organizations like Little Wanderers NYC.
Courtney Chandel, co-founder of Little Wanderers, helps rescue stray animals off the city’s streets. She says that she works with cats and even knows some people in the area who help feed the strays.
