EVANSVILLE, Ind. - Two Wal-Mart employees who police say followed a
manager's orders to shoot and kill a stray cat have been charged with
federal animal cruelty.
The men, both assistant managers at the Supercenter, were arrested
and released after a court appearance Wednesday. Christopher
Anderson, 29, and Jeffrey Hardin, 21, told police the store's manager
ordered them to get rid of the animal that was living in a storage
trailer behind their store.
All managers potentially involved in the incident have been suspended
without pay pending an internal investigation and could be fired,
said Wal-Mart spokeswoman Sharon Weber.
"We were outraged when we learned of this incident. This kind of
action is completely inconsistent with the way we do business," she
A truck driver who reported the incident said he saw store employees
placing what he believed to be a dead animal in shrink wrap a day
after he heard workers joking about shooting the cat.
Store manager Darrel Weitzel told police he had told some of his
employees to get a gun and get rid of the cat after attempts to coax
it from the trailer failed, according to a police report.
Anderson and Hardin were scheduled for a hearing Jan. 4.
