View Full Version : Man arrested for burning kitten on grill

It's pretty fucked up and the kitty's name was Lucky. Oh, the irony!!



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.

Tell me this is a fake article. PLEASE. No one can be that cruel... can they???


Edit: Killing it at the end was the right thing to do... I don't think anything can survive that... and if they do, it wouldn't be much of a life at all. I just feel bad that they let it suffer for that long even after it was pulled out of the grill.

Okay, now I'm crying.

You could always try to find an address and write a letter urging the district attorney to seek the harshest penalty, which in this case is apparently five years.

Letter sent


To whom it may concern

I had the misfortune of hearing about the animal cruelty case that took
place in your city on Tuesday, involving a Charles Benoit who grilled a
kitten to death.

The story has reached the Associated Press and is all over the internet. I
can only hope that if not for the sake of that poor kitten's life, that at
least to save some sort of decent public image of your town, that you will
urge
the judge to seek harsh penalties in his case.

Sincerely,
Shannon Winn


Oh yeah, i realized after sending it that i should have said district attorney

I'm pretty sure it would..... there was that gay kid who was tied to a fencepost and beaten to death, and some black guy who was drug by a car for miles and died, and those stories both got huge media attention and a lot of sympathy

And I wish I could find the other people that were fucking around as well, lets put them on the grill.

If it were, say, a rat, none of you would care.

Still, I think he deserves the full five. And probably some psychiatric help. You've got to be pretty disturbed to pull something like that off.

Oh, come on, you bunch of bleeding hearts! I remember when someone posted that story about a girl getting gang-raped, no one seemed nearly as bothered. You'll cry over a cute little kitty and feel all warm and fuzzy and self-righteous, but when it comes to real human suffering, you reveal who you really are: callous, selfish, and unable to work up feelings for anyone but yourselves.

I was pretty bothered about the girl who was gang-raped. I remembered reading it in the newspaper, and I was sick about it too. Granted, some people are desensitized toward human sufferring, but that's because it's drilled into us day after day on the news. It's not real to us until it hits close to home. But you know, caring is caring, even if we may discriminate alittle on the topics we care for. I don't think this makes us self-righteous or anything. And granted, some people, like myself may not be outraged if something such as a baby roach were on that grill, but I wouldn't go as far as to make it suffer, nor would I want to make anything suffer.

I just don't think it's right to make people feel bad for caring, and I like this post because people CARE. Do you realize how rare that is on Netphoria?

Well, last night there was a story on my local news about some kids who set a cat on fire. A lady heard the cat screaming and went outside and saw the kids running away. They showed the cat at the vets. It was horribly burned on its right side (and heavily sedated). It was so sad. It is one thing to read about the bbq'd cat but another to actually see a video of a burned cat. Quite sad. Just thought I'd share that with you.
