Nebraska Cop Disciplined for Horrifying Treatment of a Family’s Pet Cat

A Nebraska police officer has been disciplined for his horrifying treatment of a two-year-old cat. The cat ended up in a trap set by officer Wally Holz, who then fatally shot the cat and discarded it somewhere downtown.

The cat, Larry, belonged to John and Teresa Kauth, and ended up getting caught in a trap that was set up after local residents complained about feral cats lurking about. The Kauths’ daughter confronted Holz and this is what happened next:

He indicated to her that he had trapped the cat and shot him within 50 feet of her parents’ property. He then allegedly dumped the cat’s body behind a maintenance shed downtown, Kilgore said.

Holz was disciplined with a written reprimand, including a warning that “if there is any further violation of the city code, it will be dealt with more severely.”
