The thought of anyone torturing or killing any living thing for “fun” is unfathomable to us. How could anyone treat an innocent creature that way? It makes us sick.
Unfortunately there any many people around the world with no respect for life and apparently not an ounce of kindness or compassion in them. Thankfully, though, some of them are getting caught and they are getting the justice they deserve.
When cats began disappearing from residents’ homes in the Cambrian Park neighborhood of San Jose, California, in September 2015, police decided to look into the matter. About a month later they discovered Robert Roy Farmer asleep in his car with a dead cat, a hunting knife, blood, and chunks of fur.
At first, they charged him with three felony counts of animals cruelty, but as the evidence against Farmer began to mount up – including security footage that showed him luring a cat away from its home – they linked him to more cat killings and eventually charged him with a whopping 21 counts of animal cruelty, including torture and sexual abuse.
After his arrest, one elderly woman who had allowed Farmer to stay with her for a time said he had abused her cat and even struck her grandson in the face. At one point he had even wondered allowed what it would be like to kill another human being.
