The horrible story of a defenseless kitten thrown into wet cement through a seven-foot metal pipe occurred during the late afternoon when Andrew Chatwin placed the pipes in wet cement to provide support for the building.

Thanks Dianne. I'm going to send this post out with the other stories and petitions on this crime.

I think the police officer who laughed and said he would have just thrown dirt over the kitten should be tarred, feathered and thrown into cement alive. Let's get a petition calling for it ASAP.

The monster who did this and the police officers who just laughed and ignored this crime should have the same thing done to them, to see how they would like it. They don't deserve to be alive on this planet, they should be sent back and punished in hell where they belong.

it seems like there is a greater increase of pychotics crawling out of their holes. they say these, i refuse to say human, things always start with animals to "get the feel" and then they move on because it feels "good", "it's fun". there is no medical treatment for these things, their brain is nothing like anything out there. it is stuck and refuses help and there for unleashes the foulest of all animals. things like this , have no feeling, caring, no emotion, these are our future serial killers.

as long as any being lives in fear, hate, exploitation and death at the hands of man so shall all men live under this same threat, don't fool yourself no one is free as long as another is oppressed. withdraw your consent for as long as we agree to the small things we have agreed to the big ones, the pebble seems so small but its effects are far reaching
protect life, prosecute those that seek to destroy our shared home and our fellow beings
life has value beyond measure
Peace and Love

Karen you are right.I have done much research on the association between animal abuse and human abuse and they are directly connected.
They start with animals and move on from there.

I am so sick about this. Before I was indifferent on what was going on in that town, but after hearing this and all the other animal cruelty going on, I will work to break up the community and get those arrested involved in crimes against animals. Their are some very sick people on this earth and I pray to God all that abuse, neglect, and kill animals are punished by God. God will make their lives misable in ways we can't imagine.

This police guy must get another job if he is capable of anything and first be punished for at least 20 years cause someone gave this dumbo a leaders position while he is nothing but a scared follower doing wrong. We need to trace all these bastards.

I relocated to Kanab, UT to work with cats at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary about 14 years ago.(I moved to Florida 2 years later) I thought someone was "pulling my leg" when I was told about Colorado City. Driving through it to get to the nearest town that had more than a grocery and hardware store made the stories believable. Having been raised in east coast suburbia, I couldn't believe that a place like this existed in the U.S.. I can't even find (non-offensive) words to describe it. Maybe the inbreeding is causing mental retardation. This town is a small settlement of polygamists in the middle of the desert. You have to see it to believe it. Best Friends is an excellent sanctuary and all animals are respected and loved there. I'm sure the vet clinic at the sanctuary tried to save the kitten and staff were undoubtedly gutted by this sadistic act of torture. Many of the local Mormons referred to shelter staff as "tree-hugging animal people". I felt so bad for a couple of local Mormon girls who came to work at the sanctuary. One of them attempted suicide. They were compassionate, intelligent teens who "ran away" from their abusive fathers.

Unbelievable group of relative shagging low lives. Even the judges/police are fundamentalist Morons. There will be no justice if the cretan who did this is found. However, Karma has a way of justice...eventually. These f-'s think they are above the law of the land, create their own justice (ha ha) system. I hope some oil company wants to frack smack in the middle of their town...but then that would mean oil and they would become even richer. ...well, how about a direct hit from an astroid?

Thanks Dianne, this is so cruel and heartbreaking to see. If these people where real Christians, they would not do things like this, this is EVIL. They are nothing but a bunch of brainwashed inbred's. So sad that children are born to these Mormon morons. They are a sick bunch of people. ''SIGNED''......I hope these people that did this are caught and punished. You DON'T do this to animals. ''RIP LITTLE KITTEN''!!!!!!

thanks Dianne for the post and Vicki for the fwd. Once again...we need strong laws implemented and carried out to protect animals. Cruelty to animals has been on the rise at an alarming rate and yet, when caught, people are slapped on the wrist and let go. No.!! Whoever can do this to an animal belongs in jail, not for 26 weeks...try 26 yrs. As for the cop who thought it was funny...perhaps he'd like a taste of a cement wall.

This is from another article

The Justice Department also thinks FLDS and the police force -- known as the "Marshal's Office" -- has done some creepy things to animals over the years.

Among the many, many instances of strange behavior in the community are a few tales of animal abuse, including in 2001, when convicted child rapist/former FLDS leader Warren Jeffs banned dogs from Colorado City and the neighboring town of Hildale, Utah.

Jeffs' dog ban included and order for the marshals to go door-to-door asking residents to turn over their dogs. The marshals proceeded to bring the dogs to a "slaughter pit" near the towns, shooting and killing every single one, according to the lawsuit.

"Two of the Marshal's Deputies involved in this incident remain employed by the Marshal's Office," the lawsuit states.

As for the Sheriff's Office, Carter says deputies haven't made any arrests in the town since they started patrolling a week ago.
