Earlier this week, CCTV footage of a man hanging a cat by the neck to a staircase went viral, prompting investigations.

Azrin was arrested by police last Monday after the cat’s owner had found the animal dead outside his home.

28-year-old Al Azrin Norhisham was found guilty under Section 29(1)(e) of the Animal Welfare Act 2015 (Act 772) and Section 29(1) of the same act, which carries a maximum sentence of three-years jail, a fine, or both.

The man had requested for a lighter sentence after claiming that his actions were justified.

Azrin made the case that he was mentally unsound and said that the cat had first attacked him.

However, his plea was denied.

Police are also looking for another suspected animal abuser after footage of a man choking a chicken recently caught Malaysia’s attention.

Seriously, what is wrong with these people…
