EDMOND, Okla. -

Edmond Police said they are one step closer to identifying the person who tossed a cat into traffic, killing it.

Last week a woman called 911 after someone flung the helpless animal from a moving Jeep near Danforth and Kelly in Edmond.

After posting the video to their social media police said the tips began rolling in.

“I think people hate to see something like that, a little innocent animal out there that's helpless and someone treating it badly,” said Edmond Police Department’s public information officer Emily Ward.

The video was captured on a street camera at Danforth and Kelly, one block north of where a woman told dispatchers she witnessed the horrific crime last Monday.

“We were driving, and we were driving behind this yellow jeep and we saw them throw their black cat out the window,” said the unidentified caller.           

The witness told dispatchers she turned around to see if she could help the animal.

“I moved it, it's sitting in the middle of the median because I picked it up and then it died,” said the caller.

The caller described an older bright yellow Jeep, with a black top.

“We have identified the vehicle but as far as a suspect all of that is ongoing,” said Ward.

According to callers the suspect was driving erratically.

“We saw them throw the cat out the window, and they swerved into the other lane and a couple cars had to like, go out of the way, to avoid hitting them,” said the caller.

While police have yet to locate the driver, they said the video coupled with the community's help will hopefully lead to an arrest.

Police ask if you have any information regarding this incident to contact Edmond police.
