A sick and twisted cat killer filmed himself torturing it first with spray paint in what police fear was only his latest attack.
Stefan Wallace, 25, was jailed for six months for animal cruelty on Wednesday, November 11, MyLondon reports.
Wallace, of Dagenham, East London, was originally arrested by Met Police officers for having a machete in a public place on October 1.
During the arrest he made worrying comments about ‘butchering’ a cat which police investigated with the help of mental health professionals.
Officers watched footage found on a flash drive at Wallace’s home showing him torturing a cat with spray paint before finally killing it.
PC Tony Kiddle said: “The footage found at Wallace’s address was disturbing in the extreme.
"During the filming, he removes his mask to adjust the camera, clearly confirming his identity."
Police fear Wallace has killed a number of animals.
“Given the vast number of ways that domestic pets, roaming freely, can come to harm, it would be difficult to put a number of the level of his offending," PC Kiddle added.
"But, given the content of his home footage, I believe that it is likely that he has played a sinister part in the deaths of a number of animals in recent years.
“Wallace has exhibited horrifyingly cruel behaviour and it is reassuring to know that he has been removed to a place where he can cause no further harm to beloved pets.”
As part of the sentence given to him at Barkingside Magistrates' Court, Wallace is disqualified from owning or keeping any animals for 10 years.
