    Happened in MY City - Animal Cruelty

    I pull time volunteer Police Reserve in my city some weekends. This past Sunday being Fathers Day I stayed home and had family time.

    After reading the following I wish I'd put some time in after all. I'm not a crazy animal lover but I like em and it boils my blood when I hear anything like the following:

    From the Mobile Press (Local News Paper) found on http://www.al.com

    Tortured kitten dies of injuries
    Thursday, June 21, 2007
    By RON COLQUITT
    Staff Reporter

    Gizmo, the kitten tortured at an apartment in Chickasaw on Sunday, died Tuesday night at Rehm Animal Clinic in west Mobile, and a funeral is planned for today.

    The cat had been burned and nearly drowned, and the pads on two of its paws had been sliced off.

    Chickasaw police arrested Ralph Allen Fisk, 22, on Sunday after, they said, he tortured the kitten that belonged to his girlfriend, Jessica Powell, 19, because it had scratched him.

    "I believe it's the right thing to do," Powell said Wednesday of the kitten's funeral. "It deserves it because of what it went through."

    The funeral is planned for 2 p.m. today at the Mobile Pet Cemetery, off Airport Boulevard in west Mobile County, about a mile west of Mobile Regional Airport.

    Powell, who shared an apartment with Fisk, said she has broken off her relationship with him since the Sunday incident. The couple has a 5-month-old son.

    She said Fisk now is living with his parents in Citronelle.

    Police charged Fisk with first-degree cruelty to a dog or cat. He was released from Mobile County Metro Jail on $3,000 bail.

    If convicted of the first-degree charge -- a Class C felony under Alabama law -- Fisk could be sentenced to a maximum of 10 years in prison.

    Powell said she was not sure if the kitten, which was about 2 months old, was a male or female. She said a relative had given it to her about two weeks ago.

    She said she discovered Gizmo in a closet at the apartment when she returned home from work Sunday.

    "I was crying the whole time when I found out what had happened to it," Powell said. "I thought it was dead at first, then I saw it was still breathing. I tried to wake it up, see if it would respond. I didn't know what had happened, and then it started bleeding."

    Virginia LaRue, Powell's mother, said Wednesday that she was "very angry, very upset" about the mutilation. She said she called police when she learned out about it.

    Reggie Young, the Pet Cemetery's assistant manager, said Wednesday that the kitten would be buried in a type of small casket traditionally used for infants.

    A tiny teddy bear and a toy for kittens will be placed inside the casket, and an ordained minister will speak during the funeral, Young said.

    Meanwhile, Dale Bartlett, a Humane Society of the United States official, faxed Mobile County District Attorney John Tyson Jr. a letter Wednesday saying people who abuse and torture animals are most likely to do the same to children.

    In the society's view, the facts of the kitten case "clearly constitute intentional torture and should therefore be aggressively prosecuted," he wrote.

    There's got to be a special hell for anyone who would do a thing like that to an animal.

    They should send him to Gitmo for practice.

    That man no longer qualifies as human. JMI, he needs to be taken behind the courthouse and put down like a rabid animal. Jail time is too good for him, and there's a better than decent chance that anyone who can do this to a kitten can and will do it again to a human.

    These wacko's start with animals and work their way up the food chain...many serial killers started with animals for practice...

    I say, let Bubba teach them the social graces of prison life..."Now serving number 27...and it's still Monday morning?"

    It really sickens me, but at least now we know sociopaths when we see them.

    I HOPE HE GETS ALL 10 YEARS.

    I'm no cat lover and would love to see much less of them, but no excuse to torture a living thing.

    Agreed. And I've got the blowtorch.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    When you add that to the litany of other horrors we read about every day, it makes one wonder about our species in general.

    I am almost speechless....almost. NOTHING needs to be treated so cruelly. If a animal needs to be put down...it should be fast and as painless as possible. To kill a little animal in this way is horrible. It makes me sad to think that anyone or anything has to die in this kind of torment. Their last moments spent in fear and pain. 10 years is not enough....I hope bubba is a cat lover.
