Landlord Uses Dead Cats to Push Tenants out....

NEW YORK - Tenants of a Brooklyn building said their landlord came up with a new idea for how to kick them out: Let the smell of the cats out of the bag. Dead cats, that is. The stench from the carcasses did catch the tenants' attention — but they stayed and sued.

One tenant, Daisy Terry, told a City Hall news conference on Sunday it was so bad she had to hold her nose coming down the stairs.

The building in Brooklyn's Bushwick neighborhood was purchased last year by a company listed in court papers as Heskel. A call to Heskel Properties in Manhattan was not immediately returned.

Terry said the landlord used the dead cats to try to push out rent-stabilized tenants.

Why the hell would someone think to do this in the first place???

and where did the dead cats come from... might be some more charges coming against someone

I do believe he will be charged with something - plus losing his job once they file the lawsuits!
