Another reason why you should not post...

Anyother reason why should not not post animals on craiglists or kijiji or other sites...

SAN ANTONIO - A San Antonio man involved in the 2007 torture and killing of several cats must serve three years in prison.

A judge in San Antonio on Wednesday sentenced 24-year-old Jordan Scott Mitchell. Mitchell in February pleaded no contest to three counts of animal cruelty.

Investigators say the remains of the cats had been taped to some plywood.

A co-defendant, 21-year-old Austin George Patterson, in June was sentenced to eight years in prison for the same cruelty charges.

The San Antonio Express-News reported Thursday that both men acknowledged a fourth killing in which a cat was doused in gasoline and burned alive while tied to a tree.

Mitchell told police that Patterson located the cats from families who posted ads on Craigslist seeking new homes for their pets.

What a sick individual! Those poor animals. Makes you wonder how many he actually tortured.

Thanks for posting this. Maybe it will deter people from using these sources of media to place their pets.

RIP little ones. So very very sorry.

That is just a terrible story.

sweet ones.

And, just as a side note, to help educate people, perhaps someone can list good alternative ways to place kittens/puppies if they unfortunately end up having a litter?

You know that kind of scum will move onto kids and women. Just take him out to a nice secluded spot in the dessert drop him off and leave him to wither away and die a long excruciating death.
