On Friday, a Russian court sentenced two “sadistic” teen girls to jail for torturing and killing animals while filming themselves committing the atrocious acts. The five-month trial, which took place in the city of Khabarovsk, ended with the women pleading guilty. The women had been nicknamed the “Khabarovsk slaughterers” by the media.The two took dogs and cats to an abandoned building where they gouged out their eyes, stomped on them and shot the defenseless animals with airguns. They then posted the disturbing videos on social media which led to an investigation and their subsequent arrests.
The women wore horror costumes and bloody makeup as they tortured their innocent victims – kittens, puppies, dogs and cats. One photo showed a petrified white cat as a knife is held up to its face. A different photo showed a dog nailed to a wall as if crucified and another dog was hanging by its collar and then shot with an air gun. Other disturbing images included dead animals with their eyes missing; a dead cat is shown lying on its back as the women cut open its stomach to pull out its internal organs.
“The court established that two friends who were minors between June and August 2016 systematically treated animals cruelly, using sadistic methods, maiming and killing them,” stated the Investigative Committee as reported by the Hindustan Times.
Alyona Savchenko was sentenced to four years and three months; her accomplice, Alina Orlova received three years and ten days and an 18-year-old boy who helped with the videos was sentenced to three years. Psychiatric testing showed the defendants were mentally capable of standing trial.
Interesting also was the fine the court imposed upon the family of the defendants for “inadequate bringing up of children.”
