Retail Cat Killers Take Teamwork Too Far

from Chicago Tribune: EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Two Wal-Mart employees who police say followed a manager’s orders to shoot and kill a stray cat have been charged with federal animal cruelty.
The men, both assistant managers at the Supercenter, were arrested and released after a court appearance Wednesday. Christopher Anderson, 29, and Jeffrey Hardin, 21, told police the store’s manager ordered them to get rid of the animal that was living in a storage trailer behind their store.
All managers potentially involved in the incident have been suspended without pay pending an internal investigation and could be fired, said Wal-Mart spokeswoman Sharon Weber.
“We were outraged when we learned of this incident. This kind of action is completely inconsistent with the way we do business,” she said.
