Audenshaw thug kills kitten
A man brutally killed his son’s kitten after it soiled a sofa. Dalkeith Anthony Jarrett hurled the tiny black and white kitten from his 16ft high balcony in a fit of rage after it dirtied the sofa instead of using its litter tray.
He was caught after RSPCA bosses pleaded for information about the dead animal.
The 46-year-old, of Rowcon Close, Audenshaw, pleaded guilty to failing to protect the animal from pain and suffering by his abuse which led to its death. The kitten was found dead by a neighbour just hours after she overheard Jarrett repeatedly threatening to kill it. Read more on the website of the Manchester Evening News
Anything less than six months imprisonment for this thug would be a disgrace. There is no place for wanton animal cruelty in a civilized society. Tameside Citizen
