Millionaire’s Son Is An Alleged Cat Killer

by Elisa Black-Taylor
(USA)

A millionaire’s son is an alleged cat killer in the Baltimore, Maryland area. Readers, if sick, twisted individuals make you sick, please stop reading and move onto another article because this one is very bad.

This story began back in March when Ethan Weibman, who grew up in a million dollar home in New York, adopted a kitten from the Maryland SPCA. Within days Weibman returned the dead kitten to the shelter and asked to adopt another.

MDSPCA Executive Director Aileen Gabbey determined the kitten, named Lucy, had been beaten to death and alerted the police.

It took less than two weeks for Weibman to purchase another cat from a Glen Burnie pet store and two hours for him to rush it to the vet hemorrhaging.

He is also charged in the death or four former cats and in the injury of a fifth.

Weibman is allegedly killing the kittens by torture. Everything from beating to cutting to yanking out their teeth.

Caroline Griffin with the Animal Abuse Task Force is in charge of the investigation.

Both Weibman and his father have denied the charges and have no comment to the media and his lawyer has urged him to keep his mouth shut on the matter.

Meanwhile, shelters are circulating information on him and warning other shelters, pet shops and advertisers on Craigs List not to allow an adoption to this kitten killer. Especially cautioned are those in the states of NC, VA, MD, DC, DE, PA.

Keep in mind Ethan Wiebman is young, handsome and rich. A smooth talker. Memorize his face from the picture I’ve linked below.

The aol message board also has a page worth reading here.

Please everyone, let’s stop him and show other’s like him that we’re sick and tired of people like him. Remind those in authority that people who abuse animals later abuse people.

Facebook even has a page set up warning about this monster. There’s an excellent picture of him here. I didn’t mention his girlfriend because I have no proof she’s been charged as of yet and don’t wish to wrongfully accuse anyone.

Weibman is out on bond and goes to trial in September for his crime. Here is contact info and a sample letter to send the Maryland Attorney General to help convict this monster. I would list the link itself, but petitions without physical addresses aren”t valid and a hard copy would be much more convincing. Feel free to add the link to the most important article I’ve ever written for pictures-of-cats.org. Kids Killing Cats

HERE’S THE LETTER TO THE ATTORNEY GENERAL:

Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler
200 St. Paul Place
Baltimore, MD 21202

Attorney General Gansler:

We, the undersigned, request the maximum legal sentence be sought in connection with the animal cruelty and animal mutilation charges filed against Mr. Ethan Weibman. The pending case numbers are 5B02116112 and 1B02113084.

We request this for two reasons:

1. Scholarly research has long proven that animal abusers “graduate” to interpersonal violence against individuals. New research also indicates that animal abusers are more likely to commit property, drug and public disorder offenses. If found guilty, Mr. Weibman should be given the maximum allowable sentence to protect the general public.

2. While companion animals continue to be wrongly classified in many jurisdictions as “property”, the state of Maryland can and should hold for basic human decency in seeking the maximum sentence for Mr. Weibman if found guilty. Torturing, hurting and mutilating defenseless animals is not something society can or should support and the maximum sentence, should Mr. Weibman be found guilty, will reverberate throughout the public.

We respectfully demand that the maximum sentence be sought in the prosecution of Mr. Weibman. Your attention to this matter is appreciated.

Respectfully,

Readers, please do all you can to see justice is served. This could happen anywhere. I hate to say it, but it’s just too easy for animal abusers to get their hands on a poor defenseless cat who wants nothing more than to be loved.

I wasn’t going to mention this case that happened where I live, but I’m mad at the world today since reading this and, well, why not. This is my page and I hope Michael will appreciate that I tried, even though I failed. There was a dog found a few days ago in a hot car at a local mall. The outside temperature here was 100 degrees that day. The police confiscated the dog and let the two men who returned to the vehicle (two hours later) go without charging them. Several readers wrote in and their comments were printed. Mine was not. I told what article of the law to look under showing the police should have charged the men with both abuse and neglect. I even sent a second email to the newspaper about why my comment wasn’t printed and have not heard back. It’s a shame how little our animal companions are thought of in many areas.

Here is the email I sent to be printed as a comment (to follow). Apparently it wasn’t important enough for where I live, but I hope the readers here will appreciate my trying. Unfortunately, sometimes our voices for the animals are totally ignored.

“I live in Hodges now, but when I lived in Anderson I reported a man for pouring kerosene on a dog and threatening to set it on fire. The officers who came out refused to smell the dog and said if I called them back out I’d go to jail for harassment. This happened late in the evening when the Animal Control officers had to be called by the police. I now write as Elisa Black-Taylor. Feel free to Google my name. I do articles on abuse, neglect and CDV and how it relates to animal cruelty. As far as the case with the dog at Greenwood Mall, please read the S.C. Code of Laws, Title 47 which can be found here – link broken 2012. These men broke the law and should have been charged. It’s police officers like this who send the message its OK to abuse an animal, we don’t care, we don’t have time to fool with it. I thought Greenwood County law enforcement was more sympathetic to the abuse of animals. I’m just sorry I was wrong.”

torture of animals graduates to torture of humans
by: Denise

Reading this in Toronto…I feel sick to know that a human being is able to hurt another living thing and in such a cruel way. So true. His propensity to inflict pain on an animal, will graduate to inflicting pain on a human (if it has not already been done).
What goes through the mind of such an individual while he commits his torture. Truly a sick person and a sick mind.
May he suffer as his animals have.

Millionaire son is an alleged cat killer.
by: Rudolph.a.Furtado

For the first time in my life reading about a human involved in “cat Serial Killings”.
For unexplainaible reasons, cats have always been feared and also envied by humans.In any human society, the presence of the good exists with the bad.
