Sign: Cat-Killing Man Laughed And Joked About Killing Neighborhood Cats

Hardin County, Ohio – For years, 37-year-old Andrew Dilts has been capturing cats in his neighborhood and killing them. Dilts has boasted, laughed, and bragged about killing the cats much to the dismay of his neighbors, who owned some of the felines as pets.

Screenshot from social media.

Dilts admits to capturing 14 cats – it is alleged that the cats died after being shot, having their throats slit, or from being shot with an arrow.

Animal Legal Defense Fund outlines the animal protection laws for animals in Ohio:

OHIO REV. CODE ANN. § 959.13. Cruelty to animals.

(A) No person shall:(1) Torture an animal, deprive one of necessary sustenance, unnecessarily or cruelly beat, needlessly mutilate or kill, or impound or confine an animal without supplying it during such confinement

OHIO REV. CODE ANN. § 1717.01. Definitions.

(A) “Animal” includes every living dumb creature;
(B) “Cruelty,” “torment,” and “torture” include every act, omission, or neglect by which
unnecessary or unjustifiable pain or suffering is caused, permitted, or allowed to
continue, when there is a reasonable remedy or relief;

Despite the “needless mutilation or killing” of more than a dozen neighborhood cats, Dilts is only facing a misdemeanor charge.

Animal Victory is petitioning for Prosecutor Bailey of the Hardin County Ohio courts to charge this evil individual, Dilts, with felony animal cruelty for the horrific nature of his behavior. Please add your name to the petition if you want justice for these victimized cats who died in a violent, cruel manner.

We the undersigned demand that Andrew Dilts be charged with felony animal cruelty for trapping and killing numerous neighborhood cats. This petition acts as our collective endorsement for this individual to be punished to the fullest extent of the law for killing  more than a dozen cats in his community.

Note: On February 22, Andrew Dilts requested a continuance to secure an attorney.

Individuals are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law. Animal Victory relies upon the authorities and the court system to determine guilt or innocence.



Update 4/8/2024: Animal Victory sent petition to the court and DA. 

Update 3/26/2024: Andrew Dilts’ next hearing is scheduled on 04/22/2024. He is being charged at this time, with a Misdemeanor 2.  Kenton City Prosecutor Andrew Tudor can charge Dilts a 5th degree felony; Animal Victory is attempting to get in touch with the Prosecutor to see if he is pursuing the felony charge.
