Another F**KING animal cruelty story!! What the hell is wrong with that boy???

A 15-year-old boy has admitted causing unnecessary suffering to a hamster after freezing it, tumble-drying it and then putting it in a washing machine.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty at Harrogate Youth Court.

Youth magistrates banned him from keeping animals for four years and passed a 12-month supervision order.

"What this boy did was horrendous," said RSPCA inspector Mike Pugh.

He explained that it took over half an hour for the hamster, named Poppy, to die.

After first being put in a freezer then heated in a revolving drum, it finally drowned in the washing machine.

Pugh said the animal "suffered severe pain and mental stress" and a post-mortem showed it had lesions on its feet and torn claws.

The vet concluded these were most likely caused by frostbite, trying to climb out of the freezer or hang on to the inside of the dryer drum. She died of severe respiratory or cardiovascular damage.

Poppy's owner called the RSPCA after finding the pet in the bin.

"The teenager was one of several who were guests at the owner's house," said Pugh. "The owner had been out for the evening and came home to find the evidence of what happened. There were droppings in the freezer and the tumble-dryer."

"Poppy was bought as a gift for the owner's daughter, who was obviously distraught.

"This was an act of senseless cruelty against a defenseless animal."

Wasn't poppy the name of the dog that gave birth? This is nuts! And ya know what they say, about how the real whacko's of the world will start with animals and eventually work their way up to people. If this kid wasn't severely abused himself, then he has a very serious mental disorder and I hope they get him some really good long term help either way, before he grows up and becomes the next Jeffrey Dalmer (sp)!

I would say yes since you did say the plural of mouse. If you've killed more than one, that definitely qualifies you as a serial killer! Someone please alert the authorities!!

But this was someones family pet not a house rat, and the kid tortured it first, several times over, not even stopping to feel bad after the first and second times! We've all killed a mouse or two, but going out of your way to abuse and torture an animal is deranged.

Ok, I totally skipped the story as I cannot read about things like this. My hamster, Mink, is the greatest friend. I shop the produce aisle to get all of his favorites. He lives in a 3 story townhouse (his cage) with all of the play things a hamster could ever want (besides another hamster). I do not understand how cruel society is in mistreating children, animals, old people, anyone that cannot defend themselves. It sickens me to the point where I want to scream.

Try the little bastard as an adult, who gives a flying f*ckk that he's only 15.

How about this, toss his worthless ass into a freezer, then into a dryer, then drown him. That would please me.

Nah, let's just hit him with a car instead. Tie him up in a chair and haul ass right for him. At least he would be able to comprehend what was happening to him so he could properly shit his pants as the car comes screaming down the street.

There's an improper way to shit ones pants?

Sorry, I had to say it!

I've always had a horrible problem that I imagine what animals are going through when things like that happen. My father is on a fire department, this spring a house burned down and only one kitten of a litter of five and the mother survived. I could hardly sleep for over a week because every time I'd try I'd "hear" the kittens screaming, the surrounding fire sound and imagine what they were feeling. I know, I'm weird.

(on the good side, he took the kitten home and I helped my mom take care of him until she found a home for him)

I saw an episode of South Park where they talked about putting one up someones butt. Could that possibly be true? That should be a felony crime punishable by the electric chair if true. Disgusting!
