Man Who Beheaded Cat May Escape Punishment Because He "Wants a Clean Record to Become a Prison Guard"?


Politically-Motivated Probation Report Paints Rosy Portrait of Killer
In January, Robert See of Dutchess County in upstate New York shot his cat with a high-powered rifle after the animal urinated on his carpet. See then cut the cat's head off with an axe and put it in a bag which he hung on a neighbor's property. While he was arrested and charged with animal cruelty after the cat's decapitated head was discovered, it seems now that this cat killer may not have to pay for his murderous crime.

The District Attorney's office had originally planned to charge See with only a misdemeanor, but now they are leaning towards not prosecuting him at all. The reason is that See wants to be a prison guard, and having any criminal record at all would legally prevent him from being hired for the job. The Dutchess County Department of Probation seems more than happy to help him out by issuing a report characterizing See as "well-grounded and responsible" and his actions as "a reflection of the values in a rural area."

Such a statement by an official agency is an offense to the majority of people in rural areas who care about animals and would be horrified by the thought of someone killing and beheading their cat for urinating on a rug. Such a violent act against an innocent animal is completely inappropriate for anyone, and should certainly not be tolerated in someone whose ambition is to guard prisoners. Considering what See did to his defenseless cat, it is frightening to think of how he would treat incarcerated human beings.

*** WHAT ELSE YOU CAN DO ***




Contact Dutchess County District Attorney William V. Grady and politely urge him to prosecute Robert See to the fullest extent of the law. Remind him that studies by the F.B.I. and U.S. Department of Justice have proven the connection between animal abuse and violence against humans, and that See's act of animal cruelty should automatically disqualify him from serving as a prison guard
