A post over on YesBiscuit has left me completely flabbergasted.
In July, two males – aged 17 and 18 – made friends with a neighbor’s cat by feeding him. Once the cat, named Tigger, trusted the two, they lured him into an apartment and threw a sheet over him:
They hit and kicked the cat, bashed it with a fire extinguisher, then drowned it in a toilet and threw it into a trash bin.
They bragged about the killing to a relative and laughed as they recounted their actions. Both were later charged with aggravated animal abuse. The 17 year old was committed to the Oregon Youth Authority until Jan. 17, 2012.
The baffling part of all this? As part of the 18 year old’s community service, he must do volunteer work.
At an animal shelter.
The kind that has cats in it.
In other news, convicted child molesters will now complete their community service hours volunteering at daycare centers.
