Teen Girls Who Filmed Themselves Torturing Kitten Plead Not Guilty to Animal Cruelty

Written By : Ashley Herzog

Two teen girls who made a viral video of themselves microwaving a kitten are pleading not guilty to animal cruelty. (Miraculously, the kitten survived.)

Their lawyer is arguing that the girls “didn’t understand” what they were doing to the animal–despite the fact that they’re 15, not 5. (And even the 5-year-olds I know understand that it’s barbaric and evil to torture a kitten.)

In court yesterday, the judge ordered the girls to undergo a psychological evaluation and released them to the custody of their parents with conditions, Portland Press Herald reported.

‘Torturing an animal is a marker for some serious behavioral problems but we don’t know if these defendants fit that profile,’ Cumberland County District Attorney Stephanie Anderson said, in explaining the importance of a psychological exam…Police told the Boston Herald the girls appeared to be laughing in the video.

A couple of sick puppies, to be sure. We really need to figure out how to discourage this destructive “attention whoring” by people trying to get famous with disgusting and shocking Internet posts. Stiff legal penalties and social condemnation–including “outing” of Internet users who hide behind screen names–seems like a good place to start.
