A Rhode Island man is accused of soaking a kitten in water and then placing the tiny feline into a freezer. As reported by WPRI News, a man, identified as Shane Hall, got angry after a kitten knocked over some garbage.
According to the Woonsocket Police, Hall put the kitten into a crate and then took the crate into the shower to soak the kitten in water. After the kitten was drenched, Hall allegedly placed it into a freezer with the apparent intent to cause death.
A 27-year-old woman tried to rescue the kitten from the freezer when Hall turned his anger to her – she was injured after Hall shot her multiple times in the side with an air-soft gun. Deputy Chief Michael Lemoine tells the news agency, “Obviously this man lacks self-control and has some anger issues.” The woman told the authorities that Hall had slammed a kitten into the floor the day before the shower/freezer incident.
In an interview with Deputy Chief Lemoine, it appears that the woman was eventually successful in her attempt to rescue the kitten from the freezer. Hall has been arrested and he is facing multiple charges, including felony count of assault with a dangerous weapon and two counts of unnecessary cruelty to animals.
