Raging cop stomps girlfriends cat to death after it pooed in new apartment

A furious cop allegedly stomped on his girlfriend's cat after it pooed on the floor, causing its traumatic death.

Eric Harris was arrested for animal cruelty following his rage-fuelled punishment at the couple's apartment in Tampa, Florida, USA.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office deputy got into a row with his girlfriend of six months over her two pet cats on August 21, police said.

The couple, who had only recently moved in together, argued due to the pets climbing onto furniture and defecating on the floor.

The following day, the girlfriend returned to their home and found the cats both cowering in their crate.

One cat, named Axel, was left suffering from broken toenails after the brutal attack.

It was reported that the three-year-old was behaving out of character and was unable to rely on its rear legs to stand up, reports Newsweek.

The pet owner rushed the feline to the vets who then referred the innocent cat to an animal hospital for urgent care.

Harris denied any wrongdoing and said the cat was normal while he was with them inside the property.

But days later, a necropsy was carried out on Axel and its death was found to be caused by blunt force trauma.

It was reported that there was haemorrhaging and bruising to internal organs and facial injuries.

The cat was also missing a tooth and endured marks on his body which showed signs that he had been stomped on.

Harris has been dismissed from his job.
