Felony charges leveled after man allegedly shoots cat with BB gun

A single decision can have lasting impacts on a person's life. In some cases, felony charges can result if the choice negatively affects another person or, in certain instances, animals. Animal cruelty charges can come with severe punishments if a conviction takes place, which is why it is important that accused parties understand their legal rights.

One man in Texas will certainly want to determine what defense strategies will work best for his case after recently being taken into custody. Reports stated that a witness saw a cat eating out of a bowl on an apartment balcony. The witness then allegedly heard a loud noise and saw the cat seize up. At this time, the witness also purportedly saw the man with an object in his hand.

The man allegedly stated that he had shot the cat with a BB gun. The cat did not survive the incident. Authorities were apparently alerted to the situation, and as a result, the man was charged with animal cruelty. It was not mentioned whether the man was still in custody at the time of the report.

Allegations of animal cruelty are considered felony charges in Texas. As a result, the man may have a considerable amount of work ahead of him when it comes to defending against the charges. Fortunately, he can take the time to explore his defense options to determine what may best suit his case. He may also obtain information from legal professionals regarding details of his situation, the exact charges and other aspects of his legal predicament.
