Target: Charles Donoghue, Watertown, NY Police Chief
Goal: Seek harsh punishment for man who allegedly killed cats and kept their bodies in a freezer.
A man reportedly killed two cats and then placed their bodies in plastic bags and kept them in a freezer. After drowning the first cat, 33-year-old Jesse Young allegedly killed a second one less than two months later. Young is accused of striking the second cat so hard that the poor animal went into convulsions. He then grabbed the cat by the neck and twisted until it the cat’s neck snapped. Both of the pets belonged to a roommate of his.
The extent of violence and suffering that these helpless creatures had to endure is overwhelming. It sounds as though this man was making a habit of viciously murdering small animals. It’s a well-known fact that people who are capable of committing sadistic, violent acts against animals are extremely dangerous and more likely to harm humans as well.
Young has been charged with two counts of aggravated animal cruelty and is set to appear in court soon. If an appropriate punishment isn’t set for these sickening crimes, the murder count will undoubtedly increase and more animals will suffer tragic deaths. Authorities must adhere to the zero tolerance policy when it comes to penalizing this alleged animal murderer, or the crimes will continue. Please sign your name on the petition below to demand that Jesse Young is put behind bars for as long as the law will allow, if he is found guilty.
Dear Chief Donoghue,
Two cats were reportedly murdered on different occasions by a man who broke the neck of one and drowned the other. He then put their lifeless bodies in plastic bags and kept them in a freezer, according to police. One of the cats was struck so hard that the innocent animal went into convulsions before Jesse Young allegedly broke the cat’s neck with his own hands. Both animals belonged to his roommate.
It appears that Jesse Young was not only making a habit out of murdering cats but also violently torturing them. The suffering and fear that these innocent creatures must have felt is unimaginable. We urge you to protect the animals and people of your community by making sure that this man is punished to the most severe extent possible, if he is found guilty.
