A north-central Iowa man is jailed after allegedly killing a cat. Hamilton County Sheriff’s deputies on Tuesday arrested 37-year-old Robert Alan Primmer of Stratford on a charge of animal torture.
The Sheriff’s Department received a call from two witnesses about Primmer setting his cat on fire in a burn barrel in the back yard of his Stratford residence.
The two witnesses went to the aid of the cat but were unable to help the animal. They called the Sheriff’s Department with deputies unable to locate the cat. Primmer is being held in the Hamilton County Jail in Webster City on a bond of $2,000 dollars.
