Justice for Cat Reportedly Cooked Alive

Target: Shawn Heubusch, Police Chief of Batavia, New York

Goal: Seek maximum penalty for man who allegedly cooked a cat alive.

A cat was reportedly found dead inside of a man’s oven when firefighters responded to a smoke alarm. Detectives believe the cat was alive when 42-year-old Darren Annovi put it inside the oven. No reason has been given for this horrific, torturous incident.

Annovi was charged with aggravated animal cruelty and is scheduled to appear in court this month. This is the behavior of a severely deranged and dangerous person. The alleged act of cooking a cat alive is purely torturous and evil. Not only was a cat tormented and murdered, but the other residents living in the apartment building were also put at risk. Please add your signature to the petition below demanding justice for this poor cat and protection for other animals.


Dear Mr. Heubusch,

A man was charged with aggravated animal cruelty after firefighters responded to a smoke alarm inside his apartment and found a dead cat in the oven. Detectives believe the cat was alive when the owner decided to cook it.

This type of torturous behavior is inexcusable. We urge you to take this extremely heinous case of animal cruelty seriously and see to it that the owner gets the maximum penalty and is permanently banned from owning animals if found guilty.

  1. this sorry s.o.b. needs to be put out of his misery. I would sentence him to be put in solitary confinement for the rest of his life. NO EXCUSE for the tor-
    ture and killing of this cat. I don’t care if he is mentally ill he still needs to be
    put away. Some people just have a mean nature and do horrible things to
    defenseless people and animals. If you were abused at some time in your
    life that still doesn’t make it right for you to do the same. There should be
    no contact with the outside. No t.v.,radio,letters, cell phone,drugs,news
    paper,ect. He should get just enough food to be kept alive. A bucket for a
    toilet, and a hosing off for a bath. One pr of clean clothes a month. Only an
    hr a day to be outdoors. There should be strict laws for animal abuse and they should be enforced. NO EXCUES MADE, NO EXCEPTIONS!

    This needs to be dealt with in the strictest possible way. This is sick and morally reprehensible! This man is a would-be serial killer! LOCK HIM UP and throw away the key!

    I wrote to Force Change and asked why they were still featuring 4 year old petitions (I don’t mean this one). Not only did I not get an answer, I think they’ve taken me off their mailing list for asking inconvenient questions. Be careful, signers, as these petitions can be used as a good way of getting hold of lists of email addresses and other details which can later be sold on.
