According to WVEC.com:

Wendell Overton had seen the black-and-white cat in the neighborhood before. “He was watching the cat for a few weeks and he said ‘Mom, if I can get my hands on him, can I save him?,” his mother Julia said. Little did he know he would literally save the cat’s life. Wendell came upon four boys, between the ages of 5 and 13, who were throwing the cat in the air, running over him with their bicycles and squirting an energy drink in his face, said John Graves with the Outer Banks SPCA.

The best news of all of this is that the Outer Banks SPCA reported that Jackson was doing well. So far Wendell has been praised for his actions (we couldn’t be any happier for him) but no official rewards or documents have been given to him yet. The kids “charged” with the abuse haven’t officially been charged with anything. Instead they apparently got a stern talking to from officers who were on the scene.

I guess they’re kids but this kind of cruelty should never got unnoticed. We’re just glad that Jackson is OK and that there are people like Wendell out there.

Way to go Wendell!
