A 15 pound goat was discovered Friday, April 4, strung up from a fence on the campus of Petaluma High School, near a baseball field. Petaluma Animal Control is investigating the incident. The cause of death has not yet been determined. However, under California Penal Code § 597(a), anyone who “maliciously and intentionally maims, mutilates, tortures, or wounds a living animal” can face misdemeanor charges—one year in county lockup and/or a $20,000 fine—or felony charges amounting to up to three years in county jail and/or a $20,000 fine.
