Kittens thrown in dumpster
A man from Huntington (USA) has been charged with animal cruelty for throwing kittens in a dumpster behind the Central City Market on Thursday night.
According to the criminal complaint, a man tossed a small black kitten into a dumpster by its neck and left it there. When he was arrested he could hardly speak and his breath smelled like alcohol.
The man was charged with two counts of animal cruelty, both felonies, one count of failure to process and one count of public intoxication. The man faces up to 10 years in prison and several fines. His bond has been set at over £12.000.
According to the police report, the kittens are doing fine now.
