“I killed six or eight of your cats and I’ll kill the rest of them,” cat predator Daniel T. Smith reportedly told two kind women who feed homeless cats in Pittsburgh, PA.
Smith poisoned the cats with mothballs, just for defecating on the sidewalk. He was caught throwing two dead cats in the trash; another cat was seen vomiting, and later had to be euthanized.
The cats were part of a colony designated by Animal Friends. All were spayed, neutered and vaccinated, and enjoyed being petted by humans. Because of this man's cruelty, only three cats remain out of the colony of 11. Smith told police that these cats had no rights because nobody owned them.
Smith faces animal cruelty charges, and will be sentenced Dec. 7, 2017. Sign the petition to urge the Allegheny County District Attorney to prosecute Smith to the fullest extent of the law, and bar this man from ever owning an animal for the rest of his life.
