Target: Anonymous 24-year-old animal abuser
Goal: Condemn man for abusing kitten and uploading the video to Facebook
A 24-year-old Frenchman is accused of injuring a kitten by throwing it against the wall of an apartment building. This man uploaded a video of this onto his Facebook profile, perpetuating a perverse upward trend in animal abuse videos. Authorities say he is being prosecuted for animal cruelty, and if the man is convicted, he will face up to two years in prison and a $40,500 fine. Condemn this man, and make sure he is punished for his cold-blooded crime.
The video shows a four-month-old kitten named Oscar being thrown high into the air toward a large bush by his owner. A second clip shows the kitten being hurled against an apartment building wall and falling to the concrete sidewalk. The owner recovered Oscar and took it to SPA, the Society for Protection of Animals, to receive treatment. SPA states that it is treating Oscar for a broken foot and a stomach injury suffered during the abuse.
Prosecutors have declined to identify the man, and are searching for the person who filmed these abuses.
During court proceedings, France’s national welfare association was organizing a demonstration outside of the courthouse. Another welfare group, the Brigitte Bardot Foundation, filed a complaint against the man, and his Facebook profile was later taken down.
What has become shocking in recent news is the amount of people recording animal abuse and uploading it to their Facebook profiles. While the abuse is difficult to watch, it is because of the abuser’ stupidity that prosecutors are able to convict and imprison these ruthless people. While prosecutors have not given the French abuser’s name, his case is unique enough to be identified. By signing this petition, you not only condemn this man, but you may possibly prevent this kind of disturbing abuse from happening again.
Dear Anonymous 24 year old Frenchman,
I am deeply angered and disturbed at the abuse you showed to your four month old kitten Oscar. This kitten did not deserve the amount of abuse you subjected it to and I hope Oscar will find a new loving home. I sincerely hope you will never be allowed to own another pet again if this is the way you treat an innocent baby animal.
I cannot believe you also uploaded the abuse onto your Facebook profile. I don’t understand what you were trying to accomplish by uploading something so cruel other than police knocking upon your door. The abuse and neglect you showed your kitten was uncalled for and I hope you are convicted and put in prison.
[Your Name Here]
