Springfield, MO 65802
Honorable Darrel L. Moore,
I'd like to draw your attention to the following case :
Two employees of Springfield, Missouri's City Utilities (CU) agency
apparently recently found a cat trapped in a garbage receptacle at one of
their employer's service centers. By the time they left the scene, the cat
had been stoned to death and left in the dumpster
buried under a trash bag. The animal's skull was crushed in the attack,
according to news sources.
*It appears that neither of the suspects has been held legally accountable
for their alleged attack. Please help us change that.*
On November 27, CU announced that the accused had been suspended from work
and ordered to perform animal-welfare related community service; one was
demoted and the other denied any chance of promotion for a year.
A CU spokesperson apparently deemed the matter a mere "personnel situation."
*This is clearly a criminal situation. *Their alleged act merits each
suspect being charged with the Class A misdemeanor offense of animal abuse,
given that Missouri Revised Statutes Section 578.012.1 stipulates that one
is guilty of that offense "when a person: (1) Intentionally or purposely
kills an animal" and given that Section 578.005(3) defines animal as "every
living vertebrate except a human being."
When the Springfield Animal Control department was contacted regarding
criminal charges, the agency knew of *no criminal investigation into the
suspects' actions or related pending criminal charges *against them.
I would like to remind you that those who abuse animals rarely do so only
once and almost never stop there.
The safety of Greene County and its animals may well be at stake, and that
their employer's workplace penalties can in no way replace the penalties
state law reserves for these suspects if they are convicted of crime they
are accused of.
Please take all necessary action - including criminal prosecution - to
ensure that this defenseless cat was the workers' last victim.
Thank you for your valuable time and consideration,
