A pathetic message

A MAN who swung a kitten by its tail and slammed it repeatedly on to a road as his friends laughed was yesterday given a one-year good behaviour bond. Jamie Stephen Thorley, 23, of Doonside, could have faced a jail sentence of up to two years for the brutal attack which killed the three-month-old kitten on May 31 this year.

But instead Parramatta Local Court Magistrate Geraldine Beattie made Thorley agree to be of good behaviour for one year after being found guilty of aggravated animal cruelty, resisting police arrest and malicious damage.

The court had heard Thorley was drunk when he picked up the kitten on Delany St, Doonside. He stroked it at first before swinging it by its tail over his head and repeatedly slamming it into the road. Thorley and the friends he was with laughed as the attack unfolded.

What low bastards, to laugh while this is done to a defenceless animal.

Thorley told the court he had no recollection of the event because he had mixed 350ml of rum with his schizophrenia medication that day. When the attack took place Thorley was supposed to be facing Wyong Local Court answering charges of break and enter and stealing a car.

Yeah I’m sure he learnt his lesson, he’ll be a good boy now.
