A Waterford man was charged with animal cruelty for killing a cat, according to Pennsylvania State Police on Monday.

Douglas Mayer, 54, was taken into custody.

It happened July 30 at an address on Dunn Valley Rd. in McKean Township.

A witness told troopers she saw a cat playing around Mayer when the cat attacked his foot.

Mayer took the cat, went to a fielded area on the property, snapped the cat's neck and killed it, state police said.

The cat was later disposed in a wooded area south of the residence, according to investigators.
