Sensitive souls refrain. On Wednesday, the social network Snapchat circulated images of particularly excruciating animal abuse. A young man viciously attacked a cat during various awkward scenes. He then explained that he had shot him in the head with a lead bullet before cutting him open with a knife and playing with his inert body. “I think he’s a bit dead there, isn’t he?” commented the torturer. The animal was then shaken and thrown into a pool of blood, the scene reports. Actu.fr.
Many reports have been made and this Thursday the national police announced that they had arrested the person responsible for these atrocities. He is about twenty years old and comes from Freyming-Merlebach in the Mosel.
Sarreguemine’s public prosecutor told France Bleu Lorraine that he had opened an investigation into cruelty and mistreatment of farm animals. The young man risks five years in prison and a fine of 75,000 euros.
