In Nassau County, Florida, a video posted to Snapchat showing kids using a Taser on a kitten and sent in to the media is now being investigated as an animal cruelty case. On Thursday, the video was sent to Nassau County Animal Services and has authorities searching for the two children involved in the inhumane act.
According to WftvNews, the video shows the two children using the Taser on the kitten and laughing as the cat is zapped. Officials believe the video was recorded in the Timber Creek Plantation neighborhood in Yulee. Concerned citizens have been coming forward and allegedly have identified the kids shown in the video.
County Commissioner Justin Taylor, along with other community members are shocked to see any innocent pet being treated so cruelly.
“To see an animal who is harmless and has not done anything to be treated that way , it’s cruel,” stated Mr. Taylor.
“Who was standing there videoing this? That’s the other question,” asked local resident Michele Higham. “Who would allow children to do this and think it’s funny? The damage is done, not only physically, but mentally to that cat.”
Why do these children have a Taser? Where are their parents?
