3 Kids played cricket with a kitten

I just heard on KFM that 3 kids, age 7, 8 and 10 from Somerset West played cricket with a KITTEN!!

All the bones in the kitten's body was broken. Magdel Horrel rescued the kitten after her domestic worker told her of the incident and took the kitten away and rushed the kitten to a vet where the vet had to put the kitten out.

Can you believe that kids can do this!!

    Correction: This WORLD would be a better place without people in it like those evil kids.

    May God help me to never witness an act of such kind - cause they will need more than an army to stop me - I don't care if they are kids and I don't care if they are adults - I will personally do the same to them and even much worse things that they have ever imagined. They will personally find out what is torture that they will rather want to be dead. Yes I know this sounds horrible - but animals can't always fend for themselves, and when a dog does bite someone out of self defence the animal needs to be put down or shot !!!! why just because it tried to protect itself??? My pets are like my kids - I love them dearly - like Sherise say - you cry when they hurt - you laugh when they are happy. They are my life and I will do anything for them. May these animal abusers burn in everlasting hell.

    I'm crying my eyes out as I'm writing this. How could anyone do that to a poor defenceless animal! That kitten wanted nothing more than love. I agree with Engela, those kids should die VERY VERY painfully!!! Every day I hear of more and more horror stories - cat dies in microwave, mice set on fire, dog dragged behind car, horse savagely beaten while tied to pole, birds decapitated, dog raped by man... (mostly done by KIDS OR TEENS!!) None of those animals deserved any of that, all they want is love! Who gives anyone the right to take and destroy another life? I have a cat (Nooi) and a dog (Zeus) who I love very much. I saw them grow up. I laughed when Zeus fell over repeatedly while learning how to walk, cried when Nooi had a miscarraige, I kiss them goodnight and I hug them every morning. I play with them and bath them. and I get tears in my eyes when I see that look of undiluted love in their eyes. It's the most special thing when I've got one or both of them sleeping next to me (or as it usually happens: ontop of me). They're part of the family and if anyone, ANYONE lays a hand on them I SWEAR I will PERSONALLY hunt those devils down!!!!!

    What a disgrace - do the same to these brats as they have done to the kitten. Break every bone in their bodies with a cricket bat and leave them to die slowly. I have children and grand-children but I do not have any mercy for rubbish like this!!!!! I wonder what the parents are like?

    Those kids are lucky that I was not there. They need to be punished now before they kill other animals and maybe humans as well.

    I agree with all the above comments but what really needs to be done is education. The children need to be taught at school/church/day care about animals and caring for animals. They then go home and educate their parents. Maybe speak with a community leader and the SPCA or Animal Welfare so they can start planning campaigns to teach all the poorer people everywhere about caring/abusing animals. The majority of them, really don't know any better and do not think of the consequences of their actions so they don't hold themselves liable, evil or wrong.

    I wish we could put some people (kids included) down... they have no right to take one last breath after what they have done! It is disgusting and they are lucky I wasn't there! HOW CAN PEOPLE BE LIKE THIS!!! :(

  • Unknown 26 Feb 2010, 02:39 PM

    Children like these are going to end up murdering and raping people! They say that animal abuse is the beginning of criminal minds... these children need to be prosecuted now!! If they get away with this, they will end up killing another animal. MY word, if I was the parent of one of thesse little brats I would lock them up myself and totally disown them!!!

    I totally agree with cheryl, also a taste of their own medicine might not be a bad idea too. they must feel the same pain the poor kitten felt. I have 9 cats whom i love just as must as i love my daughter, my husband just has to raise his voice at any of our cats and my 12 yr old daughter goes beserk, i can only imagine wat she would do if she saw anyone harming them.

  • Unknown 24 Feb 2010, 04:35 PM

    those children should be fineda lot of money. the poor kitten. i agree with cheryl 100%

    "Human beings are disgusting animals!" Hi Philappa, I would say that's an insult to animals, comparing them to life forms such as these brats. I'm hoping that charges will be laid against these brats and their adult keepers.

    Human beings are disgusting animals!

    I agree with you 100% Cheryl!!

    Put these children in a reformatory and charge their parents. Their upbringing is clearly horribly lacking and I can only think that they have learnt this behaviour from their parents. Until they are adults, make them do community service every weekend, by having them work at animal shelters. Watch them though, in case they hurt the animals there. They need to learn that their behaviour is unacceptable and they need severe punishment - and need to be taught how to treat animals with kindness!! My God - I am ashamed to be a member of the human race!!!
