Justice for Cat Bound with Electrical Tape and Stuffed Inside Backpack

Target: Fresno County District Attorney Lisa Smittcamp

GoalPursue maximum penalty for man who allegedly wrapped a cat with electrical tape and stuffed the animal inside a backpack.

A 24-year-old male reportedly had a cat in his backpack with electrical tape tightly binding its legs, neck, face, and nose. When the police found the man behind a Walmart, they removed the tape from the cat’s face but assumed it was dead because of the horrific shape it was in. The cat, thankfully, began breathing again and was taken for treatment while the man was arrested on animal cruelty charges.

The cat was taken to a veterinarian who reported that the poor cat would’ve been dead if the officer hadn’t rescued it. It had a microchip, so they’re looking to return the cat to its owners. To bind an innocent cat in such a manner and carry it in your backpack is cruel. Anyone who could commit such heinous acts of animal cruelty is a danger to society and animals. Demand that this demented man be sentenced to the maximum extent possible, if found guilty of animal cruelty.


Dear District Attorney Smittcamp,

A cat was found inside a man’s backpack with its face, nose, and legs tightly bound with electrical tape. Thankfully, police found the cat and was able to remove the tape from its nose before the cat died. The person who did this is clearly a demented, cruel individual with no regard for an animal’s life.

We urge you to help display a zero tolerance stance against animal cruelty and see to it that this violent man is sentenced to the maximum extent the law will allow, if found guilty.

    It’s too bad we can’t sentence these disgusting excuses for human beings to more than being merely “sentenced to the maximum extent the law will allow, if found guilty”. Even “if” found guilty – chances are he will be minimally prosecuted and get off with a slap on the wrist. After all – it was “only an animal” – and besides – the cat did survive (no thanks to the demented individual involved) – – –

    Tape this bastard up and chuck him off a cliff-he should not be allowed to exist….

  3. What he did to this cat is a dress rehearsal for his next victim, most likely a child. This monster should be in prison and dealt with by the inmates.
