ERIE, Pa. (AP) – A northwestern Pennsylvania man fatally beat his two cats with a golf club because he felt “betrayed” after they scratched him.

The Erie Times-News reports 32-year-old Bisbee pleaded guilty Monday to a second-degree misdemeanor of cruelty to animals and faces up to two years in prison when he’s sentenced Oct. 7.

The Erie man applied for a first-offenders program that would have placed him on probation without a guilty plea, but was rejected.

Defense attorney Stephen Sebald says Bisbee has “proactively sought mental health counseling” and a report from that doctor will be forwarded to the court before he’s sentenced.

A Humane Society officer acting on a tip found the cat carcasses in Bisbee’s garbage in June 2013.

Several people at Bisbee’s residence implicated him before police say he confessed.
