I did this as a kid. Mr. North paid me $2 a kitten to get inside Molly Browns garage and exterminate her cats. This was in Garden City, Ks in 1957
How sick! That’s how jeffrey dahmer got his start.
I hope you get herpes.
Truly vile. Hope they fry. There is no excuse for animal abuse. None. Little killers in the making. Bet mommy and daddy are so proud.
And it’s how most serial killers start: with the most innocent and helpless.
When I was a kid, I once took a cat and threw it down into a ravine. It later died. The memory still very much haunts me.
I knew a guy in grad school said a man paid him to get rid of a kitten once when he was a kid. He held it in his hand and thrust it into a bucket of water ... and learned something about kittens. He kept his money, since the kitten was never seen again in those parts.
Not a fan of cats. That being said, these kids are deeply disturbed.
How could they be so cruel at such a young age? Sickening.
If you could kill kittens you should be posting on KOS and/or DU and not here you sociopath.
When it’s legal to kill an unborn human baby, what’s the life of a kitten to these savages?
If they kill animals, sometimes they end up killing people too.
You don’t even want to know what they were doing to cats in Phoenix 15 years ago.
If they kill animals, sometimes they end up killing people too
It’s not the killing of animals that is the problem. Deer, rabbits and other game are killed every year by normal people. It is the torture of the animals that show a sick mind.
Why is it that these stories seem more frequent now? Are we seeing an increase in all kinds of violence because of the general mood of the country under Obama?
Poor little kitten.
I can’t even read the story.

It’s fair. Once upon a time children were treated the same as adults...and crimes were fewer in number. Coincidence? I think not. If they can think up cruelty and commit it, they can face the penalties. They’re not too young to know right from wrong. Not nearly.
