Punish Man Who Dismembered Rabbit While Driving!

Published: November 24, 2020 at 02:57 PM Author: PENNY EIMS

Willington, Connecticut – A Connecticut man is facing multiple charges after the authorities discovered a recently dismembered rabbit inside of his vehicle. It is one of the most depraved acts of cruelty that we have encountered and 25-year-old Patryk Sochocki must pay for his crime!

Your signatures will be presented to officials along with a request for Sochocki to be sentenced to significant jail time!

Sochocki’s despicable act of cruelty was discovered on October 11 when police observed him swerving a vehicle being driven along Route 32 in Willington. When the police approached his car, they witnessed “chunks” of white fur on his shirt. The fur was from a recently purchased rabbit that Sochocki had maimed while driving!

Officers found the severely injured rabbit inside the car – the innocent animal’s hind legs had been severed with scissors! Tragically, the mutilated rabbit was still alive and suffering when it was discovered – the animal had to be transported to a veterinarian to be humanely euthanized.

Sochocki is facing multiple charges, including:

First-degree wounding/killing of an animal, as well as the use of drug paraphernalia, operating a motor vehicle under the influence, and failure to drive in the proper lane.

Please sign this petition – Sochocki could be sentenced to up to five years in prison. We want the prosecutor to know that a plea deal is unacceptable, and to see this cruel behavior punished to the fullest extent of the law!

We the undersigned demand that Patryk Sochocki be held responsible for mutilating and torturing an innocent animal. We are petitioning for Sochocki to receive the maximum punishment for each and every charge resulting from this depraved incident. We also want to see this man undergo a complete mental evaluation and receive mental health care if deemed appropriate by professionals. 

Final Update 10/13/2023: VICTORY! After 3.5 years of court,  Judge Kathleen McNamara sentenced Patryk Sochocki to five years in prison, suspended after one year served, followed by five years of probation for the charge of first-degree malicious killing of an animal. Animal Victory would like to everyone who signed this petition, for helping to put Sochocki behind bars! Huge thank you to “Zilla” Cannamela from Desmonds Army who stayed on top of this case from start to finish. She graciously hand-delivered our petition to the court.

1 G S. Bury this monster under the jail. This could have been someone's pet. Even if it were raised for meat no creature deserves to be tortured. This guy is going to kill a person as soon as he's free; so don't let him go! Oct 14, 2023
