Punish Children Accused of Burning Squirrel to Death

Target: Jaswant Narwal, Chief Crown Prosecutor, Dartford, Kent.

Goal: Punish teens accused of hitting a squirrel with a large rock, hanging it from a tree, and burning it.

Two teen boys are accused of burning a squirrel to death and posting the act to social media. Reports say that the pair of boys, 14 and 15 years old, hit the squirrel with a large stone before dragging it by its tail, hanging it from a tree, and setting it alight. Shrieking laughter could be heard in the Snapchat video, and the caption read “wtf is wrong with us” followed by the laugh-cry emoji. The children reportedly received only a suspension from school after they claimed that the animal was already dead when they found it.

The RSPCA has reported an increase in reports of animal cruelty posted to Snapchat. The group’s special operations unit said that the app makes those behind the videos feel ‘invincible and untraceable’ because the posts disappear after 10 seconds. Other reports of animal abuse on Snapchat include someone taking a fish out of water and cutting out its eye, a guinea pig being thrown down the stairs, a dog being tossed out of a car, and two chickens being beaten to death, among others.

The RSPCA said that reports of these “brutal and depraved” acts has increased by 340 percent in the past two years. In order to stop this cruelty, authorities must start taking these crimes seriously. Sign the petition below to demand that these boys are punished to the fullest extent of the law, if guilty, in order to deter similar acts in the future.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mrs. Narwal,

Two teens stand accused of hitting a squirrel with a rock, dragging it by its tail, hanging it from a tree, and using an accelerant to light it on fire. The act was reportedly posted to Snapchat, where disturbing laughter can be heard in the background.

Reports of animal cruelty on Snapchat have risen by over 300 percent in the past two years. It’s imperative that we start taking these allegations seriously in order to stop this barbaric trend. We ask that you start now by punishing these teens harshly, if guilty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. Don’t parents realize when your child does something like this there is something mentally wrong with them. Either that or they are just evil. Take your pick.

    • Those monsters are serial killers in the making, and need to be put to death because they will never stop, and cannot be cured of their evil mentality. They are an extreme danger to all of society, as well as poor innocent creatures. I wonder if their parents are sick too? Or if they are normal? You never know. At any rate, those monsters are better of dead.

  3. What pleasure can a normal person get out of watching animals being tortured? Modern society is far too soft on teaching children common decency and acceptable behaviour. They seem to think kids can do what they like- mustn’t thwart them! I remember when police paid a visit to parents of these hooligans-that stopped it- the embarrassed parents soon instilled some discipline. Nowadays no such thing. Parents must be made to carry the can for their horrible kids- out of their pockets- that would make a difference! Can snapchat be banned from showing this subhuman evil? What a mindless social programme! If enough people got together to stop this devilish trend?

    Hang the little thugs, before they turn to child abuse and then murder.

    STUPID damn kids who have no morals or education. Wonder who are their parents?? SICKENING!

    Absolutely horrific evil scum of children.

  7. Jeannette Allan says:

    Degraded juvenile psychopaths with inherent evil embedded in their very beings. Those ignorant, abhorrent deviants, are a waste of space on our planet, and exist only to swell the worst kind of future inmates in our prisons. It is truly sickening that such disgusting wretches are walking among, and breathing the same air as the decent people around them.

    Criminals in the making. Stop them now, tomorrow they ‘ll be a public menace.

  10. michelle taylor says:

    These filth-bag brats most definitely must be exterminated enabling a slow and agonising death by decapitation when least expected.An eye for an eye.Also immediately ban stupid “Snapchat.”This just encourages psychopaths.

  11. Frances Raab says:

    These two teenagers are budding sociopaths – lock them up until they can absolutely be deemed safe to be around any living creature. If that is never – so be it.

  12. Gigi Middlebrook says:

    Please throw the book at these pos. They don’t deserve anything less. This cannot be allowed to happen without any punishment. Lock them up!

  13. THESE TWO ARE MONSTERS AND I WOULD HATE TO LIVE ANY WHERE NEAR THEM BECAUSE FBI STUDIES SHOW THAT ANIMAL ABUSERS MOVE ON TO DOING THE SAME TO HUMANS. BEWARE U WILL SEE THEIR NAMES IN THE NEWS AGAIN ONCE THEY MURDER A HUMAN!! THEY ARE SICK AND MUST GET HELP!!

  14. Many of the world’s most heinous violent criminals got their start torturing or killing animals.

  15. what kind of parents do these monsters have this serial killers in the making I hope they get locked up in a padded cell they’re nuts

  16. THESE KILLERS NEED TO GO DIE NOW. NATURE IS NEEDED NOW.

  17. A suspension from school!! What a joke. Why aren’t they arrested. Next time it will be more animals, then a child. These students are sick, what kind of parents allow this.
