An owner of two cats returned home to find both his cats in a poor way. One cat was lying near the boundary fence of his property crying. He was limp and the owner took him to the vet where he was euthanised. When he returned home he noticed his second cat was very ill and lethargic. He took him to the vet where he too was euthanised. Both had been poisoned and had kidney failure.
The cats’ owner took them home to bury them and while doing so noticed a can of pet food on the porch of his neighbour’s house. He thought this strange as his neighbour, Mr Choung Rhee, did not have pets.
The cat owner shouted across to Rhee and yelled “You poisoned my cats”. Rhee responded “They tore up my screen door” whereby he indirectly admitted he had poisoned his neighbour’s cats.
The cats were exhumed and it was determined that they were poisoned (as I understand it). I presume the can of pet food on Rhee’s porch has been seized as evidence. I hope so as it is bound to contain pet food contaminated with something like rat poison or anti-freeze.
Rhee has not been held on remand (in jail) awaiting trial. He is out free but charged with two counts of first degree animal cruelty in King County Superior Court. I’d hope to be able to provide a follow up page.
