BAYPORT - Authorities are searching for the suspect responsible for a case of animal abuse in Suffolk County.

The Suffolk SPCA says someone was walking in a wooded area near Grove Avenue in Patchogue Wednesday when they found a cat and four dead kittens abandoned inside a travel carrier.

The mother is expected to eventually be put up for adoption.
