This sought of thing really upsets me! It makes me wonder what sought of adults these kids are going to become if they gain enjoyment from torturing innocent animals!
It’s very similar to this story, except this cat could fight back. Thankfully some nearby workers saw what was going on intervened and rescued the battered 10-12 week old kitten. They took her to receive medical attention according to a social media post by a local woman.
Outrage online was immediate as Brown Humane Society followers, where the kitten was taken, expressed their disgust at her treatment at the hands of these children.
A social media post from Brown Humane Society said, “Thank you to the very kind folks who rescued me. They saw me getting beaten and abused by some young persons. And the fine folks rescued me. I’m doing fine at the shelter,” said the post.
Facebook comments captured the local outrage as BCHS followers expressed their desire to see the responsible persons charged and prosecuted. Donations through Facebook for the kitten had already reached $550 since the post was made Thursday afternoon.
Animal abuse is generally a misdemeanor in Minnesota. It can be charged as a felony, but usually in circumstances that the animal died, or the abuse was done to threaten another person.
