WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) --
The man that was charged with mistreating animals after he shot and killed a cat was sentenced to probation and several conditions.
58-year-old Patrick Wolf from Kronenwetter will have 18 months of probation. Judge Greg Huber also instructed Wolf to stay sober, perform forty hours of community service, pay a 200-dollar fine, and to replace the family’s cat.
Wolf told the judge his wife wanted the cat put down. The cat had urinated on a rug.
When officers went to Wolf’s home, they found the buried cat, blood in the garage, and confiscated three firearms. Wolf wasn’t supposed to have the firearms, since he was convicted of a felony drug charge thirty-four years ago.
