found a kitten buried up to it's head in cement UP DATE

I don't know how people can be so cruel. The kitten is fine now. video at the link

Construction Workers Heard Cries Coming From Underground. You Won't Believe What They Rescued!

Andrew Chatwin and Isaac Wyler found a kitten buried up to it's head in cement trapped in a metal tube on a construction project they were working on. It's sickening that someone would do this, but thankfully the cat was rescued and is safe now.

UP DATE: The kitten died a few days later.

Authorities in the Mohave County Sheriff's Office in Colorado City, Ariz. announced Tuesday they will actively pursue an animal cruelty case and post new patrols in the community after a helpless kitten was thrown into a metal pipe filled with cement during the Memorial Day holiday. Andrew Chatwin rescued the kitten by cutting through the metal tube and chipping away at the hardened cement. snip

As soon as the emaciated and injured kitten was freed, he was taken to Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah. Sadly the kitten named Thomas by his rescuers, died a few days later as a result of his massive injuries.


http://www.examiner.com/article/investigation-begins-for-arizona-kitten-buried-alive-cement-pipe

The article suggests that this and other acts of animal cruelty are acts of religious retaliation against the property owners who left the Warren Jeffs-led Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Raw footage of the trapped kitten and the rescue is at the link, but fair warning, it is very difficult to watch.

I'm glad the workers heard him and went to such lengths to rescue him.

Can and would do the same to a human. They should be locked away for life if found and convicted.

9. I am always stunned

by people's capacity for cruelty. Passive indifference I can understand but this sort of active cruelty is completely foreign to me. I simply cannot fathom the psyche of someone that vicious and sadistic.

That's what should be done to the two-legged animals(s) that did this.

13. See the update. Unfortunately, the kitten did not live more than a few days

after its ordeal.

Now I'm seriously depressed.

20. The cement most likely dehydrated and burned him

I was afraid of that, cement is quite caustic, I have burned my hands working with it on days where I thought a little here and there without gloves on would be OK.

When I saw that he had been in it long enough to set the first thing I thought of was how much damage was done by it and how did the poor little guy survive. I had hoped against hope that his fur had somehow protected him.

Too many of them are like the sick asshole that tortured that kitty. Always best to NEVER trust a human.

32. I don't see many psycho and crims running around,

and most of them aren't a threat. But we live in an entertainment/celebrity culture, and any miserable mass-murderer or serial fuck-up can be a star -- and MSM will enthusiastically accommodate them every time (the innertubes lust for the stuff); Hence, it seems "everywhere."

14. I don't know which kitten was shown at the end of the video,

but it didn't look like the one that was trapped.

Additionally, there's this:

"Mangled and emaciated but still breathing, the freed feline was taken to an animal sanctuary in Kanab, Utah, where it died a few days later."

So, no happy endings.

21. Is it any less horrible for being two years old? I thought I was posting a happy ending

to a horrible ordeal story, but found out after the initial post that the kitten had died. I don't think I would have posted if I'd known that prior to posting. And for that, I am sorry.

I remember when it happened. I'm glad another cat hasn't been tortured to death.

36. How many times are you going to ask that, REP?

I apologized for posting. I didn't know it was a two year old story. Some stories on the Internet are not dated and the one I picked up on wasn't.

I didn't realize it was an old story. And when I posted it, I believed (as the link said) that the kitten had lived.)

animal cruelty should have done to them what they did to the animal they abused. How would they like being buried in cement?
