Sign: Former City Official Burned Cat, Poured Boiling Water On Dog, And Bludgeoned A Cat To Death

Fairfield, CT – A 39-year-old Connecticut man, formerly a Fairfield town representative who also attempted to run for a state office, has a long history of abusing animals and he was just arrested AGAIN for threatening a police officer.

On March 6, the Fairfield Police Department announced that Raymond Neuberger was arrested at his parent’s home. Before the most recent arrest, Neuberger was the subject of “extensive investigations involving the infliction of torturous harm to animals” and he is facing charges related to those investigations.

Neuberger’s Animal Cruelty Convictions and Allegations

  • In 2018, Neuberger was convicted for abusing his fiancé’s two King Charles Cavalier Spaniels (Thor and Charlie), burning one dog with boiling water and fracturing the ribs of the other. In that case, lawyer Kenneth Bernhard fought for Neuberger to receive jail time because he feared that Neuberger would offend again. In this case, he received just 30 days in jail in exchange for “accelerated rehabilitation.”
  • In February 2022: Neuberger was arrested after his then-girlfriend’s cat, Pearl, was “severely injured” on her abdomen, legs, and tail. Dr. Fleming, the veterinarian who treated Pearl, described the injuries, “Treatment included corrective surgeries to the cat’s abdomen because the burns were ‘down to the muscle.’ The cat’s tail was also amputated.”

  • In August 2022: Neuberger is arrested and charged again with dousing a different cat (Gem), his then-girlfriend’s cat, in bleach and beating her to death. Gem died from blunt force trauma. That investigation led to charges of third-degree assault, animal cruelty, and disorderly conduct.

Neuberger cannot even get through his court cases without committing MORE crimes. The most recent arrest resulted in charges for Threatening 2nd Degree and Harassment 2nd Degree (He was released after posting a $5000.00 bond and is scheduled to appear in Bridgeport Superior Court on a future date). Animal Cruelty charges from the 2022 cat incidents are still pending.

If you are disgusted by Raymond Neuberger’s repeated attacks on innocent animals, and his overall violent behavior, please add your name to the petition now. Enough is enough – this man needs to be PUT AWAY for as long as possible!

We the undersigned demand that Raymond Neuberger is held responsible for torturing and killing animals and we are petitioning for him to receive the maximum punishment allowable by law for the charges stemming from his repeated, cruel acts of violence. At sentencing, we also hope to see Neuberger prohibited from owning or residing with animals in the future. 

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.
