Sadistic Couple Encouraged Dogs To Kill Beloved Neighborhood Cat

Published: January 28, 2021 at 11:39 AM Author: PENNY EIMS

Brooklyn, New York – A beloved cat in a Brooklyn, New York neighborhood suffered a horrific death after a sadistic couple encouraged their two dogs to attack him. The cat, dubbed Tuxedo, was part of a feral cat colony that lived at NYCHA’s Breukelen Houses – the cat was a favorite of Latonya “Sassee” Walker’s. Walker has been feeding cats at the complex for a decade, and she was devastated when Tuxedo was brutally killed. She told the New York Post, “When it first happened, I wanted to die, I couldn’t even get out of the bed for three days.”

According to a witness, a couple encouraged their two pit bulls to attack Tuxedo. The dogs ripped the friendly cat apart, causing fatal injuries. The New York Police Department is dragging their feet to make arrests and we want to show them that Tuxedo’s life mattered! Please sign the petition today to let the authorities know that this animal cruelty case MUST be fully investigated and the couple must be charged!

A man who bore witness to Tuxedo’s killing said that the beloved cat briefly got away from the dogs, but the cruel people ensured that he would die a brutal death. Latonya Walker described what Raymond Morales, a witness, told her about the devastating mauling, “(Tuxedo) got away and they put a chair there and a stick and they banged him down the tree. They made him come down the tree so their pit bull could maul him to death. Now what kind of insanity, what kind of evil, sadistic person would come and do that?”

Though the police have been informed about the incident, they seem to be dragging their feet to make an arrest. Area residents are concerned that it could happen again. Alexis Cagino tells NBC News, “This man weaponized a dog with all intent to kill an animal, which is a crime, and I don’t know why nothing is being done about it. Nobody like that should own a dog (or) should have the right to own an animal.”

The police are aware of what happened, but nobody has been arrested. Animal Victory is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people involved in Tuxedo’s death. These people must be identified and charged for their abhorrent behavior.

Please sign today!

 Update March 2022: This case remains at a standstill. There is an arrest warrant out for Fulton Gordon – he maintains his innocence but refuses to show up to court. Without your signatures and support, this man would likely have not faced any charges at all – that in and of itself is a victory.  

Update January 2022: Animal Victory has been informed that court has still not been scheduled for the suspect; there is an outstanding warrant for his arrest.

Update 02/09/2021: Breaking news! A man has been arrested for this sick act of cruelty. The man who allegedly encouraged his dogs to maul and kill Tuxedo is identified as 28-year-old Fulton Gordon.
