Stratford police have arrested the groundskeeper at the Mill River Country Club, accusing him of beating a skunk to death with a golf club.
Police said 19-year-old Kadeem Palmer is charged with cruelty to animals. He was released Tuesday on a promise to appear in court.
The charges were filed after a woman complained that she saw Palmer at the golf course taking swings with a golf club at a skunk.
Police said they went to the course's maintenance shack and confronted Palmer who allegedly admitted killing the skunk.
