A 19 year old is not going to serve jail time after setting a cat on fire then feeding the carcass to dogs. The animal cruelty event happend in 2016, but the video was just released. The boy poured combustible liquid on a cat trapped in a cage before setting the animal on fire.
The video apparently shows the boy standing by and watching as the animal burned alive. The judged sentenced the boy to 100 hours of community service and 5 years probation.
The DA issued a statement. “It is our sincere hope that this young man who brutally caused the torture and death of a defenseless caged cat, will adhere to any suggested psychological or psychiatric treatment imposed by a duly-qualified physician. Animal abuse cases have been a long-standing priority of the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office. We will continue to pursue the prosecution of all animal abuse cases as far as the evidence and Florida Law will allow.”
