    First a cat —then a child —then a person?????? This is so cruel and hopefully will be punished to the fullest. A normal person could not do something like this but that it no excuse – he should be locked up for a long time.

    Oh and please don’t make part of his sentance be to work at an animal shelter – he needs to be kept at leat 50 yards from any animal!!

    I’d make him do a year of volunteer work at an animal shelter, under strict supervision. Any further animal cruelty and I’d throw him into the tiger exhibit at the Zoo at feeding time.
