Watsonville Children Accused In Brutal Attack On Kittens

WATSONVILLE (CBS/AP) — Animal shelter officials want three Watsonville youngsters charged for hurting a trio of kittens, including one that was bashed against a wall and had to be euthanized.

A witness reported seeing two girls and a boy, all of them under 10 years old, abusing the kittens in Watsonville on Sunday evening.

A county animal shelter manager found the kittens in the street.

One of the kittens had a severe brain injury, apparently from being thrown against a wall. It was euthanized.

Two other kittens had rope tied around their necks, restricting their breathing. They survived.

A witness identified the youngsters for authorities.

Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter officials asked authorities to charge them with felony animal cruelty.
