Teens accused of setting cat on fire arrested and facing felony charges

Two teenagers, accused of setting a cat on fire in Baltimore, Maryland, have been arrested and they are facing felony animal cruelty charges. According to CBS Baltimore, the male teens are 13 and 15 years of age – their identity has not been released.

The teens involved were caught on surveillance video – the grim footage shows a group of teens assaulting a cat and then setting the cat on fire; the incident was recorded on the afternoon of December 16 in the 5100 block of Harford Road. Baltimore Police spokesman Det. Donny Moses described the torture the cat suffered:

“Beating a cat, stabbing a cat and, of course, while the cat was still alive, they set it on fire and they really thought it was quite amusing.”

A resident in the area witnessed the cruel incident and called 9-1-1; by the time that help arrived, the cat was dead. The authorities are still searching for the other people observed torturing the cat in the video. Tips/information can be called  in to 443-681-0101 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-7LOCKUP.

The Baltimore Police have posted the surveillance video on YouTube – a word of caution, the footage is disturbing.

    Do the same to these teens.Beat them, stab them and then set them on fire one at a time.Youth of this country not capable of having any feelings for anything other than themselves. Jail time for all of them. If their parents do not feel what they did was wrong, there is no hope for them and just a matter of time before they are released and arrested again for another murder, maybe a human.

    This is what America is turning into. No real education, no hope, no future and no one to teach better, or guide youth into civilized adults.

    The beginning of lives headed down the drain–or make that toilet bowl. This collection of sociopathic human garbage should be stopped now. The best thing would be to put all of them to sleep permanently do we do not end up supporting them in prison for the rest of their lives. Of course, beating, stabbing and being set on fire should be done first to make sure they suffer before the lethal injection.

    This enrages me enough to say that I wish I could do to them what they did to that poor innocent cat !!! These scumbags should be charged with the same felony counts as an adult would be….I don’t care if the youngest was 13…he is still old enough to know better !!!! That poor little cat was at their mercy and was outnumbered so he/she couldn’t get away…..this really makes me sick to my stomach !!!! If I were younger, I would pursue a career where I could take these bastards and all other animal abusers down….there would be no more warnings and slaps on the wrist !!! They would do REAL jail time, not just 30 days !!!!

    Makes you wonder what type of parental upbringing these apparent ethnic extremely disturbed and misguided youth have been subject to.!!!! Did they watch torturous acts being committed in the family setting, are they gangbangers out for some “sicko” high by watching pain and suffering of a helpless animal??? All of them are subject to torturing other children, babies and elders. They need to be addressed as adults and sentenced accordingly … they are disturbed and seriously need IMMEDIATE MENTAL HELATH INTROVENTION!!!

    Another example of what society is raising that in no way resembles humans – these fucking punks need a huge dose of street justice since I am pretty sure the crap called a judicial system will do little to nothing to hold them responsible for their heinous cruelty towards an innocent defenseless animal and this is just promoting more cruelty to these serial killers in training. These sewer rats are and always will be a danger – I hope there is some brutal revenge taken – they deserve the same mercy they gave an innocent animal – NONE!!

    I don’t know why animals trust humans. Iis it worth it to them? Poor cat! Tortured, killed, and probably never knew any love or home. These sub species should be locked up, tortured, and throw away the key. They are a threat not only to animals but to society as a whole. To think ancient Egypt would kill anyone who harmed a cat. Civilization has gone downhill!

    These children/servants of Satan won’t be so enamored with fire when God requires their wicked souls and they spend all eternity burning in hellfire.
