A Washington man is facing a charge for animal cruelty after killing a woman’s cat. According to The News Tribune, the 27-year-old Puyallup man claimed that the “gods” told him to make a sacrifice and it was between the woman, and her cat.
The man, whose name has not been released, claimed that he didn’t have much of a choice, so he opted to take the life of the cat, whose neck was broken with a stick. The man dumped the dead cat’s body in a garbage can.
The responding authorities found the cat’s body and were told by the woman that the alleged cat killer is also a drug user. In court last Friday, the man pleaded not guilty to the first-degree animal cruelty charge stemming from the incident.
