Sign: Hold Florida Cat Killer Accountable For Evil Acts Causing Extreme Suffering

Published: September 08, 2023 at 12:53 PM Author: Penny Eims

Hillsborough County, FL – A Florida man is accused of shooting multiple cats in a Town ‘N’ Country community with a pellet gun. The shootings resulted in multiple deaths and caused immense suffering to innocent cats who were doing nothing deserving of the man’s wrath.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has identified Osvaldo Aloma Garrido, 65, as the man responsible for harming cats living in the Three Lakes Mobile Home Park community.

Seven defenseless cats were shot in the community; one cat had to have a leg amputated, and three cats suffered fatal injuries.

The shootings took place in late 2022 and these heinous acts of cruelty were brought to the attention of Animal Victory earlier this week by a Florida attorney who is disgusted by Garrido’s appalling acts.

“I wish to draw your attention to an upcoming felony trial of (redacted), Osvaldo Aloma Garrido, in Hillsborough 22-CF-016183. This monster lived in a mobile home community and started shooting the community cats in the neighborhood with a pellet rifle, Killing and severely maiming several of them. Unfortunately, due to evidence limitations, this monster was only charged with maiming one of the cats. Would your organization be willing to help spread the word? This case is more egregious than the Jaimes case in the sheer amount and number of cats killed and injured. Would you be willing to help?”

The local authorities are also disgusted by Garrido’s actions.

In a press release, Sheriff Chad Chronister said:

“I will not tolerate any act of animal cruelty in our county. The suspect had no regard for the animals he injured and admitted to firing shots on various occasions. It’s disheartening to know that there are individuals who intentionally harm animals. We will not condone violence against any animal and we will continue to make sure that individuals who commit these crimes are held accountable.”

Kathryn Barnes, a resident who helps care for the homeless cats in the community, expressed dismay, telling Fox 13, “What kind of person does this to an animal?

Barnes is heartbroken by the sheer number of cats this man has maimed:

“It breaks my heart. I want to cry, but I can’t cry anymore, but there is no point. It’s senseless to even think that with so many cats being hurt, it has become a blur of cats that have died or are injured.”

Evidence limitations resulted in this man being charged for maiming just ONE of the cats he shot; he is charged with one count of Aggravated Cruelty to Animals With a Weapon, and his trial is set for October 17, 2023. Please add your name to the petition to help put Garrido behind bars for as long as possible! He absolutely MUST be held accountable for his barbaric acts of cruelty.

We the undersigned demand that Osvaldo Aloma Garrido face the maximum punishment for any charges stemming from shooting numerous cats in the 3 Lakes Mobile Home community. Garrido clearly had no regard for the lives of these innocent cats and he must be held accountable for the pain and suffering he inflicted on them. This petition acts as our collective endorsement for the maximum penalty allowed by law in the case of the STATE OF FLORIDA -VS- OSVALDO ALOMA GARRIDO.

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.
