where did this kid learn to be so mean from? This type of behavior could lead to even worse dangerous behavior from the boy. I think he needs to be punished but he also needs help, so that in his head he can realize that this is wrong. Sadly we never know if this boy will get help.

This is terrible. It makes me wonder what kind of home life this child has.

A misdemeanor is to small of a charge for doing that to a animal!He could do it again.Animal abusers or torturers should receive much stronger penalties.They should be registered with the police departments as animal offender once they commit the crime.After all, most people know they are released back into society and they WILL hurt some other innocent animal or person like wise.To a lot of people, animals "are "their children, if he had done this to a child,the penalty would be much stiffer, if stronger laws are not enforced for animals it will continue on and on and we need to send a much stronger message across.Thank goodness the other youth contacted the police,he is to be commended for that!The monstrous youth should be sent for a serious psychiatric evaluation and than determine if he should go to a mental institution, but really, he should go to jail for a very very long time.I fear for our animals that get into the hands of these EVIL people. How about stoning him to death!Not a bad idea to me.To me he KNEW exactly what he was doing.

FELONY time. No more of this misdeamor, fine, probation crap. AND the parents need to be charged as well. Too many children are starting to abuse animals, the ages starting at scary young to young adult.
