Kansas Man Cited After Drowning Cat

Associated Press - July 17, 2013 7:05 am

A Kansas man faces a municipal court date after he drowned a caged cat in a lake north of Kansas City.

A neighbor and two children saw the man drown the cat. He told police he didn’t realize the neighbors were watching.

Police say the man, whose name was not released, drowned the cat Sunday afternoon in Lake Waukomis because it had bitten and scratched his fiancee and another person. He held the cat under water for about five minutes before it died.

The man, from Shawnee, Kan., is scheduled to appear in municipal court Aug. 20 on a charge of violating the city’s animal-abuse ordinance.

Police investigator Pete Edlund said that a problem animal should be taken to a veterinarian or an animal shelter.

Put his name in the story. Just maybe he needs more than just a slap on the wrist.

Its people like this that don’t have their names printed and should. If I were his neighbor he would have a very hard time in my neighborhood.

She probably be next to have an accident. There was no call for his actions and he should serve time for it.

April E., he doesn’t deserve to come back as a cat. He deserves to come back as a mouse in a roomful of cats.
