Cat cruelty California

Cat cruelty in California is probably no more frequent or rare than most other western countries. Here is an example. A senseless piece of cruelty, serving no purpose. Such acts of cruelty to animals would indicate that the perpetrator needs help as well as punishment.

The location is San Jose, California. San Jose is at the southern end of the Silicon Valley area. And some cat loving (animal loving - no plain decent) residents of Silicon Valley are upset and have offered a reward of $700 to help find the perpetrator.

The cat is now dead. His name was Mo. He was a kind of semi-stray cat or a community cat attached to a complex of apartments in San Jose. He was put down, euthanized due to the severity of his injuries. Someone put elastic bands around his paws, tail and neck. This caused the skin to die in those areas. It wan't spotted until it was too late.

Cat cruelty in California is a felony punishable by imprisonment and/or a fine. Under the criminal code of California, the person if caught and convicted would have to participate in counseling too. My guess is that it was done by someone living in the apartments who didn't like cats. It may not be some young kids. It may be a well respected, old and retired person. Old respectable people are not immune to criminality. I'd ask some questions and find out who doesn't like cats in the block of apartments. That person is almost bound to have made his dislike of cats known to someone, neighbors perhaps.

I am so thankful that California has good strong laws to protect the animals. In Arkansas a man drug his horse behind his vehical to "punish" it. The dragging tore the hooves off of the horse. The horse had to be put down...this criminal act was only a misdemeanor.
