A Texas man will spend the next 6 1/2 years behind bars after a nanny cam video captured him torturing his former girlfriend’s cat over a five-hour period in what one investigator described as one of the worst cases of animal abuse he’s ever seen.

A jury in Hunt County, Texas, outside of Dallas, last week convicted Shubhankar Kawle of cruelty to non-livestock animals – torture, a third-degree felony. The cat, Nimbus, suffered injuries so severe she needed to be euthanized, the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.

The sheriff’s office first received a complaint on Oct. 13, 2021, for animal abuse. The Herald-Banner reported that the complainant was a woman who briefly dated Kawle. She told deputies she called them because her two cats kept suffering mysterious injuries.

One of her cats suffered an injury so severe its leg had to be amputated.

In response, the woman installed a nanny cam to see what her boyfriend was up to when he was home alone with the cats, the sheriff’s office said. The woman left Kawle alone on Oct. 9, 2021, and the video that was captured was “horrific and heartbreaking,” an investigator said.
