Man arrested for felony animal cruelty after neutering neighbor’s cat

Eden, NC (WGHP)- A North Carolina man was arrested Wednesday for felony animal cruelty after neutering his neighbor’s cat, according to a news release from the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office.

According to authorities, Jordan Thomas Hall, 30, was at his neighbors’ home in Eden on Monday.

Earlier in the evening, that neighbor had referenced having to take his cat to have him neutered. Hall offered to neuter the cat for Dickerson, but Dickerson declined his offer.

At around 2 a.m. on Tuesday, after the neighbor and his girlfriend had gone to bed, he got up to check on Hall who was supposed to be sleeping in the living room of the home, but Hall and the cat were gone.

Later, he found his cat bloody and his testicles had been removed.

The neighbor became irate and confronted Hall, chasing him out of his residence before calling the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office.

The cat, “Shna-Shna”, was taken by Rockingham County Animal Control to a local vet for treatment and is expected to survive.

Hall was placed in the Rockingham County Detention Facility under a $5,000 secured bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 24.
