Piqua woman allegedly drowns cat
PIQUA — A Piqua woman was reportedly caught throwing her cat into the Great Miami River over the weekend.
Kristi J. Oiler, 51, of Piqua, was charged with fifth-degree felony prohibitions concerning companion animals on Monday. The incident reportedly took place on Saturday night at approximately 9:25 p.m.
According to Miami County Municipal Court records, an officer was patrolling the area around the East Ash Street bridge when he saw a vehicle parked in a restricted parking area near the river. The officer reportedly witnessed Oiler messing with a pet carrier. When the officer asked Oiler what she was doing there, Oiler “stated her cat was dying and she was going to throw it in the river to ends its life,” according to court records.
The officer asked to see the cat, but Oiler had already allegedly thrown the cat into the river. The officer attempted to find the cat in the river but was unable to locate it.
Oiler stated that she was unaware it was against the law to kill her cat in the river, according to court records. Oiler also said that her cat had been sick and she did not want to let the cat be in pain anymore.
The officer advised Oiler that drowning the cat in the river was not humane and that there were other agencies that would assist her with her cat.
Oiler is scheduled to be arraigned on Feb. 15.
