Man arrested for burning kitten on grill

July 17, 2002 Posted: 5:15 AM EDT (0915 GMT)

LIBERTY, Missouri (AP) -- A man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly burning a kitten on a barbecue grill as several other people stood around and watched in amusement.

A witness pulled the scorched, 7-week-old tabby from the hot coals, but it was severely injured and had to be put to death, police said.

"They kept saying, `Meow, meow,' and they were poking at it with a stick," said Sherry Scott, who burned her hand grabbing the kitten.

Charles C. Benoit, 24, was charged with animal abuse, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. He was jailed on $10,000 bail.

Jim Roberts, spokesman for the Clay County prosecutor's office, said he does not expect anyone else to be charged, because no witnesses could identify the others.

Scott said that on Friday night, she saw 10 or 12 people at the barbecue grill in the courtyard of the apartment complex where she lives. Scott said she asked what they were cooking, and they said it was a cat. She said the group taunted her, daring her to rescue the cat.

She said the group scattered when she threatened to call police. She said she pulled the kitten from where it had been shoved into the coals at the back of the grill. Its tail, whiskers, fur, eyes and throat were scorched.

"I called him Lucky because I thought I got him out of there just in time," she said.

Scott said she and other residents stayed up Friday night trying to nurse the kitten with an eye dropper of milk. But animal control officers decided that because of its respiratory injuries and inability to swallow food, it had to be destroyed.

"If you would have seen him, you would have cried," said Sheri Simpson, one of the residents who helped care for the kitten.

Cruelty to animals is one of the first signs of psychopathic behavior. Hope he gets the stiffest penalty plus therapy, else he could be serious trouble later in life.

Not to turn this into a gory gratuitous cruelty-to-animals thread, but this one has a super weird ending (but don't read any further if you're super sensitive)....

when I was in high school a group of guys were known for their 'pranks' (i.e., psychopathic behavior) of burying cats with only their heads sticking out of the ground and then running over them with lawnmowers, beheading them.

a few years later, one of them, all grown up and a 'nice guy' now, had an accident on a tractor where he got caught in a swarm of bees, fell off the tractor, was run over and beheaded by the tractor.

true story.

instant karma's gonna getcha

That's fucking sick. That guy should be tossed in jail for a good 10 years at LEAST. Mix him in with the rapists and molesters too. Damn shit like that pisses me off. Low life scum.
