Judge: Animal Cruelty Law DOES Apply in Deer Killings

Updated: May 13, 2009 05:00 PM EDT

Three men in Waupaca County, Rory and Robby Kuenzi and Nicholas Hermes, chose a particularly cruel way to kill a group of deer by chasing them with their snowmobiles last January. Their lawyer made a motion to dismiss cruelty charges based on the notion that cruelty to animals does not apply to wild animals that belong to no one.

Fortunately, at Rory Kuenzi’s status conference, the judge denied the shameful motion to dismiss, ruling that cruelty to animals does apply in this case.

Rory Kuenzi’s next court appearance is set for next month.

Let us hope that every judge who deals with this case recognizes that cruelty is cruelty, no matter what animal is involved.
