Cat killer thrown out of office

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, September 2003:

 

PALMYRA, Nebraska–Village chair Rex Schroder, 30, was
recalled on August 5, 130-55, a month after state attorney general
Jon Bruning charged him with cruelty for trapping and killing
neighbor Heather Bruns’ cat, trapping her dog, and killing a feral
cat. Schroder, a 15-year Palmyra resident and five-year elected
official, indicated that he believed rural values and property
rights would prevail, but after the vote, wrote Barbara Nordby of
the Lincoln Journal Star, “Attempts to find supporters of Schroder
in Palmyra were unsuccessful.”
