This is the news story that's sweeping the Internet. The video below is from the local news station and shows some edited footage of the abuse.
The worthless piece of excrement abusing the animal is Kenny Glenn, from Lawton OK. He's been arrested, but then remanded into the custody of his parents. The police will meet with him and his lawyers. I'm sure there's a sob story being concocted...he's just a kid, he's crying for attention, blah, blah, blah.
He knew what he was doing and he is a sick piece of work. In fact, he's an excellent subject for a medical experiment.
By the way, the cat Dusty is with a vet pending the results of the investigation. He should NEVER be returned to that family
