Man tells police he killed a cat
A Tuolumne County man was arrested over the weekend after he allegedly grabbed a cat by the tail and slammed it into the ground, killing it, police said Monday.
The manager of a Sonora apartment complex called police Friday after watching surveillance camera footage of the incident, the Sonora Police Department said.
In an interview with police, Spencer Morse, 19, of Sonora, admitted killing the cat. He told officers that another cat had bitten him on the finger earlier and that he drove to the apartment complex wanting to find and harm a cat.
He was arrested on suspicion of felony animal cruelty.
