Man rips off kitten's head

2012-01-25 11:40

Melbourne - An Australian man has been charged with aggravated animal cruelty after ripping the head off a kitten and tossing it down the street as children watched, a report said on Wednesday.

Police received several calls from onlookers when the 41-year-old threatened to kill the animal as part of an ongoing dispute with a neighbour, the Melbourne Herald Sun said.

As they headed to the scene in Bendigo, 150km northwest of Melbourne, police allege the man grabbed the kitten belonging to his neighbour and tore off its head with his bare hands.

He then threw it down the street in front of shocked onlookers, including children playing nearby, the report said.

"It's a terrible thing to witness," Senior Constable Danny Wolters said.

"We'd seen the kitten on the road that had its head ripped off."

A witness quoted by the newspaper said the man had threatened to harm the children that lived in the house of his neighbour.

"Because he couldn’t do that, he grabbed their kitten and just wrung its neck and did it to the point where he’d actually pulled the cat’s head right off and threw the cat’s head on the road," the witness claimed.

The man was charged with drunkenness, aggravated animal cruelty, criminal damage and threats to kill and was bailed to appear in court on March 23.

  • Martin - 2012-01-25 13:59

    This man is a savage and does not belong in society. He needs to be rehabilitated.

      darkangelBDF - 2012-01-25 14:01

      I highly doubt a sick freak like this can be rehabilitated. His wiring is fried, I think...

  • Chloe - 2012-01-25 14:03

    Why is the flippin bastard still alive ? Why did no onlookers climb in and kick 10 living sh#$% t's out of him? Should have hit and kicked him into icu the piece of rubbish

  • darkangelBDF - 2012-01-25 14:28

    I would love to pull a Dexter on his behind. The only reason he didn't harm the children was because there were onlookers. It won't be long before he gives into that compulsion.

  • Ebrahim - 2012-01-25 14:55

    Its the fault of muslim fanatics.

  • Buti - 2012-01-25 14:57

    He made a serious remark nxt time he's going to rippe off those who are around him.Prison is where he belong until he bring the kitten to life.

      Linda - 2012-01-25 15:34

      That might be just what he'd like.

  • E=MC2 - 2012-01-25 16:35

    wish someone would grab his neck & twist his head off... he killed a kitten... WITH HIS BARE HANDS! WHAT A MAN!!!

  • Heiku - 2012-01-25 16:59

    Maybe we should elect a kitten or other cute animal as our president?

  • derrick.vanniekerk - 2012-01-25 17:23

    Cutt of is blerrie balls!

  • John - 2012-01-25 19:00

    People who do things like this to animals should be put away for life in a mental institution!. They are not safe to be loose in society. It is well documented that this behavioral eventually leads to murder of humans.

  • Jean - 2012-01-26 08:41

    "The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men." Leonardo da Vinci I hope this will one day apply to lawmakers, men such as this monster have no place in a civilized society.

  • EttieneC - 2012-01-26 09:15

    Jailtime buddy. I really hope he gets gangraped repeatedly.

  • tyronemichael - 2012-01-26 21:13

    "The man was charged with drunkenness, aggravated animal cruelty, criminal damage and threats to kill and was bailed to appear in court on March 23." Horrible sentence.

  • Arthur - 2012-03-26 11:48

    I think this is the most disgusting thing I've read in a long time.
