A 70-year-old man was arrested by the police in Pujols, near Villleneuve-sur-Lot, this Monday, October 31 at the start of the afternoon.

This is a case that will not improve the atmosphere of the neighborhood of rue Petit-Tour in Pujols. Monday, October 31, in the early afternoon, a 70-year-old man let himself be carried away by his anger and targeted his neighbor’s cat.

Hearing her pet howl to death, this Pujolaise searches in vain in her garden before seeing her neighbor go after the poor beast. Indeed, the pensioner was killing the feline with the help of shears, which he normally uses to cut his hedge

The lady immediately alerted the Villeneuve police station to this act of cruelty towards her pet. Meanwhile, the 70-year-old man places the cat’s corpse in the trunk of his car, to get rid of it incognito. This is when the Villeneuvois police intervene and arrest him.

When questioned, the septuagenarian recognizes the facts and admits to having “freaked a cable”. He will be summoned in March 2023 to answer for this act of cruelty before the criminal court.
