This was reported by the press service of the city prosecutor’s office.
“It was established that on December 3, 2020, Adonyev, being in an apartment on Khamovnichesky Val Street in a state of alcoholic intoxication, grabbed a cat named Lucy and a cat named Vaska, which belonged to his wife, and threw them out into the street from the balcony of the ninth floor,” he quotes representative of the department, the agency of urban news “Moscow”.
The cat died on the spot from his injuries, and the cat died the next day in a veterinary clinic during an operation.
The court sentenced Adonyev to one year of imprisonment in a penal colony, writes RIAMO.
On the eve of the zoopsychologist Miroslav Volkov said that many problems in the behavior of pets are associated with an insufficient level of animal welfare.
According to him, two negative factors can be distinguished. The first is insufficient physical activity. The second is the lack of communication that animals need. Loneliness also affects the psyche of pets, as it does on the human psyche, Volkov emphasized.
