Sacramento police say man blew up cat
Sacramento police have arrested a 19-year-old man in connection with the death of a cat killed with explosives.
David Yang was arrested Wednesday.
Police say Yang tied up a cat with tape Tuesday night, trapped it with a construction cone on a street and then dropped an explosive device or firecracker into the cone. The cat died in the blast.
Police spokesman Sgt. Norm Leong said police initially thought a few other teenagers were involved in the crime, but after an investigation determined that Yang was primarily responsible.
Yang is being held on a charge of malicious maiming of an animal. Bail is set at $40,000 and he is scheduled to appear in court Friday.
