The D.A.I.S.Y? Foundation wants the press to be aware that on Monday, June 17th at 9:00 a.m., Robert Habermehl will be in Calgary court. Habermehl was charged on November 27, 2009 for physical abuse after a cat in his care, Minnie, was found so severely injured that she had to be humanely euthanasia.

This has been a long and trying court case. We’re hoping that Mr. Habermehl’s “heart attack” will have no impact on the sentence the judge planned on giving him. This guy has been trying to weasel himself out of a conviction, and now a sentence, for almost 4 years. He has cost, and continues to cost, the tax payers a lot of money.

The D.A.I.S.Y? Foundation has dealt with several people who appear to have mental issues, but Mr. Habermehl ‘takes the cake’. He has even threatened the judge; i.e. “You’re going to be sorry if you put me in jail.” He thinks the case should be thrown out of court because “everybody thinks I’m a monster and I’ve suffered enough.” What about the suffering of Minnie, whose intestines were hanging out, and Melanie Manning, his girlfriend at the time, who has suffered with the guilt of not leaving Robert soon enough and witnessing Minnie’s intestines hanging out and then the loss of her beloved pet.

He’s made a mockery of the justice system. We’re surprised he hasn’t been charged with contempt of court and/or uttering threats. This is a dangerous man who needs to be punished to the fullest extent of the law. He should be jailed and given therapy.

Once again the D.A.I.S.Y? Foundation wants to thank you.
