A male university student (21) from Izumisano City, Osaka Prefecture, was sent to prosecutors on suspicion of violating the Animal Protection Law.
According to the police, in January and April of this year, the suspect allegedly killed a 3-month-old cat in an apartment in Izumi City, and also killed another 6-month-old cat. The cats later died from suffering injuries.
