Man, 21, charged with animal cruelty in deaths of kittens

Staff report


Three counts of animal cruelty are pending against a 21-year-old Youngstown man in connection with the death of three kittens.

The man was arrested about 5 p.m. Monday, a couple of hours after the kittens were found dead, police said.

A municipal court official said Tuesday that he won’t be arraigned unless the police or the owner of the kittens file charges.

Police received a call from another Youngstown man, who told officers that the 21-year-old was at his South Jackson Street house to take care of the kittens.

The man showed police a text message that read: “Sorry to say I killed the cats.” A follow-up text read: “They are in the trash outside.” This man showed officers a trash can with the dead kittens inside; the kittens were soaking wet as if they were submerged in water, according to the report.

After putting out an alert to find the accused, police said they learned he had admitted himself to St. Elizabeth Health Center. Police said they arrested him at the hospital after he was medically released.

I'm not interested in hearing why he did such a cruel and evil act.
I don't give a rats ass about his difficult childhood or why he was off his medication and what imaginary boogeyman made him do this .

This kind of worthless subhuman trash always has a B.S. excuse or a story why he wasn't responsible for his actions.
Stand this filthy pile of garbage against a wall and put one right between his eyes.

Before he does something terrible to a child
