Asbury Park, NJ – A New Jersey teen is accused of something so abhorrent that it is difficult to comprehend. According to Monmouth County Prosecutor Raymond S. Santiago, 18-year-old Bani J. Mezquititla “performed sexual acts” on his cat, torturing the innocent feline to death.
The prosecutor has said that Mezquititla, “restrained and tortured the cat, resulting in its death.”
The sickening crime was discovered after a concerned citizen took the cat’s body to the Asbury Park Police Department; the investigation led the authorities to Mezquititla.
While we do not have the specific details of this despicable crime, we know that the authorities had enough evidence to arrest and charge Mezquititla; he was booked into the Monmouth County Correctional Institution (MCCI) pending a detention hearing.
He is charged with animal cruelty by tormenting, torturing, or unnecessarily or cruelly abusing a living animal resulting in its death, and animal cruelty by using or causing or procuring the use of an animal or creature in any kind of sexual manner. If convicted, Mezquititla faces up to five years in state prison.
If you are appalled by this twisted crime, please add your name to the petition and help us ensure that this young man is put away for the maximum amount of time allowed by law.

sexual relations between a human being and a lower animal
According to the Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law, “bestiality has been linked to animal cruelty, interpersonal violence, and sexual homicide.”
We the undersigned demand that Bani J. Mezquititla is held responsible for sexually assaulting a cat, causing injuries so severe that his pet died. We are petitioning for Mezquititla to receive the maximum punishment allowable by law for the charges stemming from his deviant behavior. At sentencing, we also hope to see Mezquititla prohibited from owning or residing with animals in the future.
