Activists call for stiff sentence for alleged cat killer
Animal rights activists are demanding the book be thrown at a Monmouth County man accused of torturing and killing more than a dozen cats.
The activists gathered outside the Monmouth County Jail housing alleged cat murderer Anthony Appolonia. Police say Appolonia would respond to free kitten adoption offers and then kill the animals by drowning or strangling them.
"If this man did this to animals, he might do it to people," said one of the activists.
Appolonia was on probation for credit card theft when he was picked up. Activists fear he could kill again if he is able to post bail.
