A man in his 20s was sentenced to prison for brutally killing 76 cats because a cat scratched his car. 

According to News1, Mr. A (26) was prosecuted for violating the Animal Protection Act and sentenced to one year and two months in prison. Mr. A was accused of killing a total of 76 cats in 54 incidents from December 15, 2022 to September 4, 2023 as he travelled around Gyeongsangnam-do, Gyeongsangbuk-do, Daegu, Busan, Chungcheongbuk-do, Gyeonggi-do, and other regions for about nine months. 

According to police investigations, he either adopted cats from internet or caught them on the streets. Then, he reportedly killed them in gruesome ways such as strangling them or mutilating their bodies. The Judge stated, “Considering the planned and repeated nature of the crimes, as well as the cruel methods used, it is inevitable to impose a severe sentence.” However, the Judge also acknowledged that this was Mr. A’s first offense and that there’s a possibility of rehabilitation.

He killed as many as 76 cats. Considering the repeated behavior even after adopting some, it seems like he lied when he said he killed the cats because one scratched his car, just to get leniency.


1. [+327][-1] I’m sure he could grow into a murderer. He might start killing people at this point. 

2. [+257][-0] Only 1 year and 2 months for killing 76 stray cats…?????

3. [+232][-0] He killed 76 stray cats. He even went as far as adopting cats just to kill them, and yet he was only sentenced for 1 year and 2 months?ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+201][-1] Psychopaths usually start with animals before they start killing humans. Don’t let them loose in society. What’s up with only 1 year of imprisonment…? He should at least receive a 20-year sentence. He should get beaten to a pulp so that he can’t come back into society. Ordinary people wouldn’t even think of tormenting small animals. They would feel sorry just by accidentally stepping on their tails, let alone murdering them. However, psychopaths lack in empathy due to their twisted minds. Therefore, they can engage in such behavior without feeling any remorse. It’s true that his targets have only been animals so far. But he’s only 26 years old. After serving just over a year in prison, who knows if he’ll start targeting people? Terrifying, isn’t it?
