Man Stands Charged With Felony For Killing Family Member’s Cat

PALATINE, Ill. (CBS) — A Palatine man stands charged with felony animal cruelty, after throwing a cat so hard to the ground that the animal had to be put down.

Antonio Hernandez-Angel, 33, of the 1900 block of North Green Lane in Palatine is charged with one felony count of aggravated cruelty to animals after the incident at his home about 11 p.m. Thursday, a release from Palatine police said.

Responding officers found out Hernandez-Angel had been in a fight with another family member whose cat was making too much noise. So he hurled the cat to the ground, causing such severe injuries that the pet had to be euthanized at a nearby 24-hour animal hospital, police said.

Hernandez-Angel was arrested after further investigation and witness statements revealed he hurt the cat.

He was ordered held on $10,000 bond, with conditions of no contact with animals or family members, police said.

And, I hope he selects our uncle/cousin/….who cares Jon Huntsman as Vice President of The United States of America. Long live the Pratt-Romney clan! We will do whatever it takes to get our money back from the less than 30% of Black people who are getting public ad. It’s our money!

      What?? You are obviously seeing something that I’m not. Stupidity, hate, racism, greed, selfishness? Idiot magnet? Dummies? Making a comment like that, I would think you have some sort of explanation of your opinion. Most of us consider almost everyone’s posts to be interesting and insightful. Surely you can elaborate on your negative comment.

    It’s really sad that a 33 year old man would do this to a kitten. Maybe his new friends in the pokey will hear about his crime and act it out on him. $10,000 bail for a felony. What a soft judge.
