Randy Klatt stole his neighbor’s companion animals, tortured them to death, and hung one out for others to witness. He put them on a bus route so children could also see them.
Per Greg Bewley, Hamilton County Sheriff: “A ticket for Criminal Mischief, a $50 offense, was issued regarding this case several months ago. The accused individual has pled Not Guilty and is scheduled for trial in Hamilton County on September 29th at 9:00 a.m.”

RE: Mr. Randy Klatt, CASE# SO111627
Dear Judge Lively and County Attorney Henkes,
I have learned of extremely disturbing and malicious cases of animal cruelty in which Mr. Randy Klatt deliberately caused the suffering and death of two dogs and hung one outside on a school bus route for children to witness. These alleged incidents occurred in March and September 2011. I am writing today to encourage you to pursue every route investigating this hideous crime in order to effectively charge and prosecute Mr. Klatt and sentence him to the harshest penalty; his crimes causing unimaginable agony, fear, and death in the animals and distress and wanton endangerment in children and adults who witnessed the tortured animal on display deserve social justice, not community approval.
When I try to imagine what possible motive animal abusers entertain for subjecting their animal victims to such malicious, heinous acts of brutality, I fail, but I am thankful for a lack of cognitive understanding and rationalization. To voluntarily engage in such malicious behaviour suggests sadistic tendencies, and this person’s actions, causing unmitigated pain and suffering, demonstrates an incontrovertible lack of morality regarding other living beings and a gross disrespect for the law. In fact, a person who shows such a remarkable lack of compassion towards non-human animals has the ability to show such indifference towards human animals. This link between animal and human abuse has been established, and if society excuses Mr. Klatt’s criminal behaviour, or agrees to a lesser punishment, we only harm ourselves by unjustly nullifying cruelty as acceptable behaviour.
Please respect the victims by penalizing the guilty; doing so will demonstrate your commitment to justice, responsibility, and integrity, attributes unquestionably necessary in a legal setting: rejecting cruelty by maintaining an unyielding position towards it would be a model for all community members and would serve to characterize this type of behaviour as both impermissible and punishable.
I know your time is limited and I thank you for your attention to this urgent issue.
