Woman Faces Felony After Video Shows Her Repeatedly Slamming Cat To The Ground

Published: November 20, 2021 at 07:00 PM Author: Penny Eims

Palm Bay, Florida – A Florida woman is facing a felony charge for aggravated animal cruelty after she was caught on video viciously attacking her cat. The disturbing video, released by the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, shows 31-year-old Sabrina Wood violently slamming a black and white cat to the ground, and dangling the cat from her neck.

Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey was disgusted by Wood’s actions, stating:

“Folks, I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. If you’re the type of person who can do something like this to a harmless pet, then you’re the type of person who can harm a human being with little or no remorse. If you’re that kind of person then you deserve to go to jail and have the door slammed in your face by the sheriff.”

Dr. Christina Jenkins, a veterinarian with animal services, watched the video and stated:

“The video shows a woman performing multiple violent acts of swinging, banging, punching, and slamming into solid objects and the ground with full force a cat known as ‘Mrs. Pris,’ These acts appear to have caused grievous bodily harm, injury and possibly death.”

She added that the cat likely:

“experienced aggravated and extreme unnecessary pain, suffering, torment and intentional torture.”

When confronted about the despicable act, Sabrina Wood explained that she was angry at the cat for urinating on a blanket.

Amazingly, the cat survived the appalling incident captured on video but died six months later from unknown causes.

Wood was taken to the Brevard County Jail on a $35,000 bond.

Please sign the petition today to help ensure that this woman receives the maximum punishment for the felony animal cruelty charge. The violence captured on video is appalling and a slap-on-the-wrist simply WILL NOT do.
