Arrested: Heartless teen posted video of kitten he struck with large rock

In Marion County, Florida, a heartless teenager has been arrested after posting a video of a kitten he struck with a large rock. Isaiah Diehl was identified on a Snapchat video as the person who threw the large rock at a three-month-old kitten.

According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office,

“Marion County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) Deputy Lucas Karr arrested 15-year old Isaiah Diehl (DOB: 11/16/2003) for his primary involvement in a disturbing animal cruelty video that is currently circulating social media. In the video, Diehl is seen throwing a large rock at a 3-4 month old female kitten, hitting her and causing traumatic injury.”

The sheriff’s office had been made aware of the disturbing video after another teenager saw it and reported the incident to authorities. Investigators responded to the 2000 block of NW 40th Street and located the kitten, which had severe facial trauma and had difficulty walking.

Diehl turned himself in on Thursday and has been charged with one felony count of Aggravated Animal Cruelty. He is currently being held in the Department of Justice Juvenile Detention Center on no bond. Marion County Animal Services has custody of the kitten, and she is being treated for her injuries by their veterinary staff.

“It is truly disturbing that an individual would even think of doing something like this, and the suspect being a juvenile makes it even more shocking,” said Sheriff Billy Woods. “There is absolutely no justification for any form of cruelty to our animals, and we will always seek justice for our citizens and our little furry friends.”

    Isaiah? Is that why you’re not showing his photo? Worried about political correctness? Listen, we all know who & what he is.

    The future of our country-NOT! This is one angry, crazy kid who needs to be put away permanently before he has the opportunity to do this to a human. Whoever raised him should be proud of what he has done. Social media has gotten out of hand and this is the end result of those doing cruel/inhumane treatments of animals and thinks others will watch what he/she did. We will need more jails if this continues to happen.
