In Milford, Massachusetts, a man living on a family’s farm in a camper faces animal cruelty charges after authorities accused him of killing kittens “when he was bored.” On Sunday, police arrived at Ferrucci Farm after a complaint had been made about a man both stealing and threatening the owners.
According to the Washington Times, Miguel Medina had been living in a trailer on the farm. When police arrived Medina left. As police interviewed two other people on the farm however, they stated Medina had been killing kittens. One of the witnesses had kept text messages from Medina where he admitted to having killed two kittens.
“I had other kittens but one bit my favorite kitten, so I threw that kitten against the wall and then I put it under a table,” Medina allegedly told one of the witnesses.
Medina then showed the witness the bones under the table as well as another dead kitten that he burned:
“Check this out, I burned this one yesterday,” Medina stated according to the police report.
- Man accused of drowning his mother’s cat
- Rhino injures suspected poacher
- Woman loses 14 dogs in California wildfire
And then the police account of the cruelty grew even more disturbing when Medina admitted to burning the kitten and “killing a couple a week for fun when he was bored.
Medina was arrested later that afternoon and has been charged with two counts of killing/maiming an animal and one count of animal cruelty. He was arraigned in Milford District Court and pleaded not guilty to all three charges. He is currently being held on $10,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on November 13.
