Man found neighbor’s cat annoying so he shot it

A Connecticut man has been charged with animal cruelty after authorities contend he killed a neighbor’s cat because he found the animal annoying. Craig Middendorf, 48, of Oxford has also been charged with  unlawfully discharging a firearm  and first-degree reckless endangerment.

According to the Hartford Courant, Middendorf told police he thought the cat was a stray, and it was annoying him. The cat was owned by another tenant in the other part of the duplex. He fired his rifle at the cat in the backyard of the complex.

State troopers confiscated his .22 caliber rifle. Middendorf was booked into jail and later released on a $2,500 bond. His court appearance is scheduled for February 5.

    What happens if a child annoys him or another animal? Check around the complex first and see if anyone owns it you idiot! Too many people shoot first before asking questions! I’m glad I’m not his neighbor!

    I bet he also got his gun legally and had a background check, so how will that deter others from having guns and shooting someone or something? People are just crazy and lack of patience,understanding and dealing with things like this rationally has gone out the window. Take things into your own hands and this is what happens. Police and animal control should have been called on this cat, not killing it. What a fool this scum is.

    I find Craig Middledorf’s ugly face annoying – and want to shoot it off – this maggot needs a major dose of street justice – hope it finds him real soon, apparently the authorities in Conn. are OK with it since his bail was so damn low. And they call vigilante justice wrong – HAH!
