Three-year-old Wrangler was killed July 12 in Truro. Submitted


A man accused of viciously killing a Truro family’s pet cat is scheduled to appear in provincial court Aug. 27.

Wrangler, who belonged to a Truro family, was killed on July 12.

Stephen Gregory Tynes, 29, whose address is listed in court documents as 1058 Tower Rd., Halifax, is charged with “willfully and without cause” of killing a cat belonging to Julie Chisholm and her two children.

Tynes was charged after witnesses said they saw a man coax a cat off a doorstep on Fairview Drive at about 3:20 a.m. July 12, after which he allegedly grabbed it by the hind legs, lifted it over his head and swung it down into the ground.

“He was my best friend,” Chisholm said a few days after the cat's death. 

“We had naps together, we ate together,” the mother of the young children said, regarding their three-year-old cat, Wrangler.

    If it was up to me, I would hang him. But he will get nothing.
