The Mercer County Humane Society is privately investigating an alleged incident of mutilation against animals committed by minors in Sharon.

A circulating Facebook post claims that school-aged children were posting videos to social media showing a mother cat and her kittens. The Humane Society needs help uncovering the claims and is even offering a reward. 

"Jim's Automotive & Towing has offered a reward for the video being turned over to Humane Police Officers," posted to Facebook.

The Mercer County animal group Greenville TNR is also offering $100 for the video.

"Let's work together to get this stopped before more innocent animals are tortured," the Humane Society said.

The Humane Society says the investigation into the alleged incident is still in its early stages but they do have some individuals that they will question and others who may know people in the alleged video.
