Former Baldwin City man arrested for animal cruelty

December 13, 2012


A 30-year-old Sitka, Alaska, man turned himself in to the Douglas County Jail Wednesday evening on a warrant for animal cruelty that allegedly occurred in Baldwin City in June.

According to Baldwin City Police Chief Greg Neis, Jacob D. Stus is accused of beating and killing an animal that came onto Stus' property June 19.

At the time, Stus lived in Baldwin City, but has since moved to Alaska.

Stus was also arrested on a charge of obstructing the legal process, and he's being held on a $2,000 bond.

Stus has not yet been charged.

"Stus was also charged with obstructing the legal process, and he's being held on a $2,000 bond."

"Stus has not yet been charged."

RoeDapple, Thanks for the catch. He's not been officially charged, but was arrested on that charge. It's been updated.

People who abuse animals are the lowest scum on Earth, and if you can't see that "oletimer", then it may be time for you to move on.

Oletime: "Can't wait to see what kind of trumped up stupid charges will come his way" -- What do you think is a "smart" charge would be for people who beat and kill other animals. What about people who do dog fighting?

"you get more jail time killing an animal than a person anymore" Do you really believe that? Can you cite any evidence to back your assertion?

"But don't make me say animal rights groupies and he court system is completely out of whack!" -- Nobody made you say that, but you did anyway. What does that have to do with this case?

"Gosh i hate armchair complainers" -- Um, no comment.

Was it a Mountain Lion or a Bigfoot that he is accused of killing?

I have to say I agree with none2. Where are the facts in this story? It basically says "This guy was arrested for beating an animal to death. Oh yeah, and he moved to Alaska." Surely more details are available, or they couldn't have charged him!
