Black Sabbath bassist donates to cat killer reward fund

Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler has added to a reward offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a cat killer in Yonkers, New York.

The Journal News reports the music legend is helping raise the profile of the investigation into who killed 25 cats and left their carcasses swinging in plastic bags in trees in the woods in Yonkers.

"It is so tragic that we have human beings among us that are capable of committing such a heinous and heartless crime," Butler said in a prepared statement released by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Westchester. "Surely there is someone out there that knows who has done this. Please do the right thing and come forward to get this coward(s) off the street."

Butler’s contribution increases the reward to $25,000.

Geezer and Black Sabbath recently wrapped up their North American spring tour dates in support of their latest album, “13”, at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and will return to the road for shows starting May 29 in Abu Dhabi.
