According to Suffolk County SPCA Detectives, Kristofer Martin, 27, of Kings Park was charged with abandoning his grey/black /white tabby cat on May 1, 2019. 
On Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at 11:07 am Martin was allegedly caught on surveillance walking into the wooded area of the bluffs located at the end of Old Dock Road (upper parking lot) with a purple carrier and released a tabby/white adult cat.
Cats that are accustomed to being cared for by humans do not have the skills to fend for themselves outdoors. This could put the cat in a dangerous situation. It is cruel and against the law. It is a misdemeanor to abandon an animal punishable by imprisonment for not more than one year, or by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars, or by both.
Martin is due to appear in First District Court on July 12, 2019.
A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
