Man Sent to Jail for Kitten Abuse

Warning: Please note that this story may disturb some readers.

A Calgary man was sentenced to a 90 day jail term for scalding his kitten under hot water for 2 minutes. The kitten was so badly hurt that he had to be put down. The man pleaded guilty to his offense and he will serve out his sentence on the weekends and he will not be able to own a pet for two years.

    That man definitely deserves to go to jail! The one thing that bothers me about this sentence is that the man can own pets again in 2 years. Anybody who tortures a pet like that shouldn’t ever be allowed to own them again, in my opninon. The sentence is too light…

    here is what causes me disbelief and heartache - there are so many people who are clearly disturbed and injure animals - their own or someone else’s. The rest of us can’t fathom why they would behave in such tortured ways - what is society doing to address this? Jail will not help but it is all that we have to get them away from animals temporarily. We are ’society’ - ‘they’ are not reading these blogs nor do they care - we have to work together to find a way to address this at some root level while keeping animals as safe as we can.

    I would agree that the sentence is too light — and that this man should NEVER be allowed to own a pet again. Must we forget that someone who is capable of causing injury to a defenseless kitten is further capable of causing injury to anything or anyone. Let him get away with a light sentence is basically telling him that he can do it again — after 2 years passes. (and do you think he really cares if he cannot own another pet until 2 years pass? I don’t think of this as punishment… and who is going to monitor whether he does get another pet??) These kind of people are a threat to society and there needs to be stricter punishments put into place. The next victim could walk on two legs instead of four…..

    I cannot fathom why anyone would even think of doing this!!! It makes me so angry when I read of stories like this…that I literally feel sick to my stomach…..right now I feel like vomitting!

    Vomitting….hmmmm!!!!……I think I have an idea for punishing warped “sickos” like this.

    I say build Jails that house any animal abusers……feed them all the tainted petfood that they have sitting around. 3 square meals a day! Instead of the companies dumping it back into the food chain! Then, when all that is used up…..feed them all the “mela” chicken, hogs and fish! If they are still alive after 2 years…..then we’ll know if the “dilution” theory stands……if they don’t survive……oh well. I say use these basta*rds as human (if you can call them that!)..guinea pigs!

    If they do survive after 2 years, I say tatoo their forehead and cheeks with some kind of logo before they are released and let them live in fear for the rest of their lives…..then maybe they’ll get an idea of how the pets that they abused felt!

    That’s all I could think of……for starters, anyways!

    My question is if you let this guy back into society when there’s a forewarning and he kills someone, who is responsible? When are they going to learn? It’s like these child predators who time and again are released and they end up killing a child.

    Is it the social service and judges that released the killer who should also pay the penalty? I think so.

    By not taking seriously enough action with these perverts that will ultimately cost someone their life. Get rid of them.

    Obviously someone else was there, Why would the guy do that and then take it to the vet? God how long those two minutes had to be. I can’t stand reading stuff like that, it just haunts me.

    This makes me sick. I knew better than to read it but I did. He serves his sentence on the weekends. God forbit he should be put out. Cannot own a pet for 2 years. Who is going to stop him? It is not all right to abuse an animal. Serial killers abuse animals. I’m sure that slap on the wrist will show him who’s boss. I think the so called sentence is as sickning as the act he committed. Someone should scald him under hot water for 2 minutes.

  8. Karla says:

    Bravo! I agree with all of you and the way you put it so eloquently. It made me “sick” to my stomach too. I cannot understand why our Government doesn’t take animal abuse more seriously. What I honestly feel is whatever torture a human puts on an animal is exactly the same punishment that should be done to them…..so they know exactly what it feels like. Then, as Gary says” to get rid of them”. They are of no use to our society. We have enough to worry about.

    Itchmo Admin: I know there is a reson why things like this have to be posted, but is there any way of a little warning for abuse stories, for us extra sensitive readers? I’ve had some recent losses and this put me in tears all day yesterday.

    ITCHMO ADMIN: Thanks for your input. We will put up a warning on stories that may disturb some readers. Sorry for your losses. Our thoughts are with you.

  13. Herman says:

    Some people get more worked up over a CAT than they would over a human being. Now THAT’S sick.

  14. CJ says:

    Of all the terrible things in this world, you people need to cry all day about the scaulding of a kitten? Are you serious? What about all of the HUMAN BEINGS in this world who suffer torment day to day? The fact that the man threw a kitten under some hot water for a bit definatly shows signs of a mental illness, but for *** sakes its a damn cat! Shrink yourself to an edible size and see what that cat does to you! Cats dont care about our well being, all they care about is whether or not we’ll feed them. Its been known that cats will go so far as to consume their owners (if dead of course, still ****ing morbid). The man didnt deserve to end up in jail, that kitten could have easily torn him apart had it been bigger (the only ****ing reason they dont is because they’re small and know they cant kill us). Stop your crying, wake up, smarten up, and realize whats going on in the world around you. A burned kitten is the least of our ****ing worries you tools.
