Athens Man Indicted on Charges of Buying Cats on Craigslist to Torture and Kill Them

ATHENS, Ala. (WHNT) – A 22-count indictment has been issued for a Limestone County man accused of buying cats online to kill them.

A grand jury believes Ronald Fraser Golden intentionally tortured animals. He has been indicted on 22 separate charges of cruelty to a cat or dog.

He was arrested in October after Athens Police got calls about dead kittens found near his home on Bullington Road.

Police say Golden admitted to buying kittens off Craigslist, naming them, and then killing them.

Investigators say he had a “cat room” where he would torture the animals.
