For Immediate Release:
March 20, 2015
A decapitated cat is right out of the playbook of serial killers, including the Son of Sam, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Albert DeSalvo (the “Boston strangler”). Animal abusers are deeply disturbed bullies and cowards who victimize the most vulnerable, defenseless individuals available to them—human or nonhuman. If the latest allegations about Robert Durst are true, PETA can point to his case as yet another reminder that acts of cruelty to animals must always be taken with the utmost seriousness and met with swift intervention and prosecution—for everyone’s sake.
