    Man Charged For Allegedly Trying To Feed Cat To Gator
    Kitten Will Be Adopted

    POSTED: 12:37 pm EDT June 9, 2005

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Franklin County Humane Society officers said a Columbus man tried to feed a kitten to an alligator. But the kitten escaped with all nine lives still intact.

    SLIDESHOW: Kitten Saved From Gator

    Shawn Wright was charged with animal cruelty, and faces the possibility of a 90-day jail sentence, NewsChannel5 partner ONN reported.

    People living near 226 South Eureka Avenue said that they can't believe what they saw happening in their neighborhood.

    "We happened to see a kitten climbing up the cage, hanging on to side. And then it would fall down and go back up," Aminda Sims explained.

    Sims, who lives across the street, said there was an alligator inside that cage with the kitten.

    "And then the kitten got out. And I was all excited because I was like 'run kitty, run!’" Sims said.

    When humane society officer Leighanne Detillion arrived, she said Wright admitted trying to feed the kitten to a 3-foot alligator.

    "The gentleman screamed 'I can do whatever I want with the cat! It's a stray and it doesn't matter what happens to it!'" Detillion claims Wright said.

    But that wasn't the end to the cat's tale.

    Humane society officers said Wright picked the kitten up by neck, shaking it violently as they ordered him to put it down. Instead, they said he threw Ally the kitten more than 10 feet off the front porch.

    "I'm like, I cannot believe he did that in front of me," Detillion said.

    "He didn't just toss her. He threw her as hard as he could. And she hit the concrete and bounced off."

    Now Wright, 18, faces one charge of animal cruelty. City prosecutors plan to ask for the maximum penalty.

    "Doing this type of behavior indicates some violent tendencies. And that is obviously the public safety concern," assistant city prosecutor Bridget Carty said.

    Wright’s first court appearance is scheduled for June 15.

    Ally the kitten will be made ready for adoption at the Franklin County Humane Society.

    The POSSIBILITY??? It should be mandatory, and much longer jail time than that! Makes me wonder how many kittens weren't as lucky? There must have been more than that one lucky baby. GAWD this world gets sicker by the minute!

    People need to take that kind of behavior very seriously as soon as this type of thing happens. Remember his name, he'll be on the news for much worse one day.

    That is EXACTELY what I thought. The possibility??? Well that punishment sure fits the crime, eh?

    Well you can feed a bunny to a snake, or a bird or a rodent. I'm not saying I'd side with this guy but where do we draw the line. Bunny or less and its ok to feed to the gator? The only thing he did different was the unnecessary suffering and torture. Had it been a rat he was torturing before he threw it to the gator nobody would have done anything.

    That's so sad. Poor kitten.

    It makes me wonder though... People feed rabbits, rats, mice, and guinea pigs to reptiles all the time. But if someone had fed a kitten to it, they'd be breaking the law. It makes me sad. I would never be able to go as far as I'd want as far as justice if someone were to feed my rats to a gator.
