Man stuffs kitten in freezer and then throws her off his balcony

In Fontana, California a 34-year-old man has been charged with suspicion of animal cruelty after allegedly stuffing his kitten into the freezer and then throwing her off his balcony on Tuesday afternoon.

According to the Fontana Police Department’s press release,  Lucio Lopez became angry with the kitten after the four-month-old little one walked into his apartment.

 “Witnesses reported Lopez placed the kitten in the freezer.  Lopez later took the kitten out of the freezer and began squeezing its body as the frightened kitten cried out in pain. Lopez threw the kitten off the second story balcony.  The kitten struck the concrete floor resulting in major injuries to its chest and a fractured leg.”

Lopez initially fled the scene but police apprehended him in the area of Oleander and San Bernardino Avenues. On the Fontana Police Department’s Facebook page, the adorable kitten, now named Olive is improving.

“Update** Olive is doing well. She’s is recovering from a collapsed lung and will need surgery to fix her fractured hind leg. The caring and knowledgeable staff at Valley Animal Hospital of Bloomington (909) 877-2384 will be setting up a an account to receive donations to pay for Olive’s medical care.

Olive is scheduled for surgery on Friday. Get well soon little one.

    Too old to be a “dreamer” but California’s best and brightest right? Jackass should have been in jail long ago and just the people we do not want in this country. Wait until someone gets killed by scum like this. No good and needs to have the same done to him.

      And you’re assuming he’s illegal why, exactly? Because his last name is Lopez?

      Has it even occurred to you that the only people living in that part of the country prior to the 1700’s, for the most part, other than Native Americans WERE people whose last names were things like Lopez, Dominguez, Carrillo, Renaldo, etc.?

      In other words, your assumption is racist. Think before you write.

        I don’t care where the piece of crap was born or whether he is called Lopez or O’Reilly! I don’t want animal abusers in my country! And while you are correct in what you say about Hispanics in California, you can’t overlook the fact that there had been a tremendous influx of people from Mexico over the years whether legal or not. It is not about this scum being Hispanic, it is about his being an abuser. I would send all animal abusers to the farthest reaches of outer space if it was up to me—regardless of race, creed, actions origin or anything else!

This guy is pscho. Lock him up with animal lovers and see what happens.

    Stupid monster needs to be taken to the highest building in the city to see if he can bounce safely.

    Oops….. guess that didn’t happen. Oh well.

    BTW, some of you need to stop assuming that because someone is Hispanic, they’re illegal. Hispanics lived in that part of the country LONG before it became a US territory. It only proves how racist some of you are.

    Send the lousy scum back where it came from! He sought refuge here but would deny it to a kitten? I don’t want garbage like that in my country! Deport the garbage back to his own land fill!

      Remember when I called someone else out on a racist comment, and YOU were the only person who defended her, saying “I don’t care where the piece of crap was born or whether he is called Lopez or O’Reilly! I don’t want animal abusers in my country!”

      Well, now you’ve admitted that’s not true.

      Why try to defend the other comment when your comment here is all about racism? Because I hit a nerve? Your implication that ANYONE wants animal abusers of any kind in this country is offensive. Most of this comment is about an immigration status that probably doesn’t even exist. That’s racist. Next time leave the comment alone or agree with it, but don’t try to pretend otherwise.

    “Suspicion” of animal cruelty – exactly what do authorities need to charge this hunk of puke – a video? Witnesses saw Lucio Lopez throw this innocent defenseless kitten off a 2nd floor balcony – this maggot should have his lousy ass sitting in jail OR some massive street justice dealt to him – which is preferable – he needs and deserves a beat down and dumped in the gutter where he belongs.
