I'm not even from OK and found your statute on animal cruelty.
OKLAHOMA CRUELTY TO ANIMALS STATUTES
Any person who shall willfully or maliciously destroy or kill, or cruelly beat or injure, maim or mutilate, any animal in subjugation or captivity, whether wild or tame, and whether belonging to himself or to another, or deprive any such animal of necessary food, drink or shelter; or who shall cause, procure or permit any such animal to be so overdriven, overloaded, tortured, destroyed or killed, or cruelly beaten or injured, maimed or mutilated, or deprived of necessary food, drink or shelter; or who shall willfully set on foot, instigate, engage in, or in any way further any act of cruelty to any animal, or any act tending to produce such cruelty, shall be guilty of a felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state penitentiary not exceeding five (5) years, or by imprisonment in the county jail not exceeding one (1) year, or by fine not exceeding Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00).
Lots of legalese in there, right? What it says in short is that if you willfully or maliciously
kill an animal that is a pet, whether its yours or someone else's, you're guilty of animal cruelty.
I'm not an attorney, but that looks like an applicable law to me. Maybe it's because I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night?
