Green Bay, Wis, USA: A woman who failed to complete veterinary school and her fiancé’s brother performed a DIY neuter operation (male cat desexing) on the man’s cat. It went wrong because an infection tool hold. The cat was taken to a qualified veterinarian who called the police last Wednesday. The vet did an emergency neuter.
The pair, Richard Krystof, 24, and Samantha Bruce, 27, have been charged under animal welfare laws. It’ll be a lesser crime: a misdemeanour.
The authorities are deciding if the cat can be returned to the owner and is currently in veterinary care. It appears that they don’t want to return the cat and are in discussion with the humane society on terminating ownership.
They’ll have to be careful. A court order would deal with ownership and remove the cat from them to be rehomed. More to follow…..
