BEND, Ore. (AP) - A Bend man is facing charges in the death of his neighbor’s cat after the animal was found hanging from the fence between their homes.

KTVZ-TV reports (https://goo.gl/DlcLQI ) that 55-year-old Glenn William Lacoss was arrested after last week’s incident and booked into the Deschutes County Jail. He has since posted bail and faces one count of aggravated animal abuse.

Police had been called to Shannon Garza’s home after the woman found her cat named Sweetie dead and hung over her fence.

Police say Lacoss told them he had been upset about feral cats in his backyard and had killed the cat because it was scratching his trees.

The case remains under investigation.
