A San Diego County Man Sentenced to Prison for Torturing and Killing at Least 10 Cats

A man was sentenced to state prison on Friday after entering a guilty plea to the torturing and killing of at least ten cats in San Diego County.

Joshua Boyer, 31, of Oceanside, was sentenced to eight years in jail after pleading guilty to 10 felony counts of animal cruelty.

Judge Robert Kearney of the Superior Court rejected the defendant’s motion for probation after hearing from the victims.

Boyer’s “sadistic nature” was highlighted by him as evidence of his grave danger to society.

At North County Superior Court in Vista, Kearney stated, “The depravity of the acts and sadistic nature overrides the steps he has taken to make himself a better person.”

On May 24, 2019, the San Diego Humane Society opened an inquiry following the finding of ten dead animals and other partial remains on an Escondido property, which was traced back to a GPS tracker on a cat that had been reported missing.

Officers from the Humane Society reportedly found over 125 pieces of evidence, including weapons and instruments intended to “inflict harm,” which connected Boyer’s prints and DNA to the felines, according to the group.

Boyer obtained two of the cats he acquired from the San Diego Humane Society by using Craigslist and animal shelters.
