A Louisiana man who committed a heinous act of animal cruelty against an innocent cat has been sentenced to years behind bars in prison. According to KALB News, 30-year-old Cody Toups has been sentenced to three years in prison for killing his girlfriend’s cat with a machete.
The cruel incident happened in August 2018 when Toups grabbed a cat from inside of his girlfriend’s home and hurled the feline into Bayou Lafourche. The father of Toups’ girlfriend tried to retrieve the cat from the bayou, but Toups killed the cat with a machete – the cat’s body was retrieved from the water with a large laceration to its midsection.
In addition to Toups’ time behind bars, he is prohibited from owning an animal for the next 10 years.
