Man Pleads Not Guilty To Killing Cats

Eric Leroy Patterson was arrested Friday on suspicion of throwing two cats into the San Francisco Bay.

A 33-year-old San Francisco man pleaded not guilty to two felony counts for throwing a homeless woman's two cats into the San Francisco Bay, according to the San Francisco Examiner.

The cats died when a man threw a homeless woman's belongings -- including the container that held the animals -- into the Bay on Nov. 25.

Surveillance footage captured the video of the man, and on Dec. 6, Animal Care and Control officers arrested Eric Leroy Patterson outside the Embarcadero Center, the newspaper reported.

He's being held on $130,000 bail and will return to court in January.
