Man bought kittens on Craigs List then beat them to death
A man in the US has been arrested after buying a large number of kittens off the classified site Craigs List and then beating them to death because he was “angry with the world”.
Ronald Fraser Golden has been charged with 22 counts of first-degree animal cruelty after police found five dead cats and blood splattered across his walls. The 48 year old admitted that his killing spree began in July.
He admitted to have a ‘kill room’ in his Alabamaba home where he would throw the kittens, stamp on their necks and cause them great harm.
The police finally caught him aftering receiving an anonymous tip as they investigated reports of dead kittens found near his home.
Police cheif Floyd Johnson said that 'Golden admitted to buying kittens off Craigslist, naming them and then killing them,'
'Golden told investigators he had a cat room where he would throw the kittens against the floor to break their necks, stomp on them or wring their necks.'
When police searched his home, which is opposite a school, they found the horrific scenes and bodies of kittens in the garden. Thankfully, two kittens and two dogs were found alive in the house. The police said that the dogs were well cared for.
A couple who sold kittens to Golden claimed he was in the process to buy another from them. They met him through the site Craigs List and said that 'As soon as they showed the picture I said "That's the man, that's him",'
'He seemed real nice and talkative and he gave me some updates a couple of days later on how they were doing, what he'd named them,'
He is currently being held in Limestone County Jail and bail has been set at $22,000 and if convicted he could face a year for each of the 22 charges made against him.
