Cat’s microwave death stirs up rage on Internet


Anger and threats erupted on the Internet over the weekend as people reacted to charges against four young people who allegedly broke into an Alberta house and cooked the family’s cat to death in a microwave. One Facebook group with more than 50 members asked that the teens involved — one aged 13, the other three 15 — be prosecuted as adults. Police allege the four teens broke into a house in Camrose, southeast of Edmonton, on Dec. 29 and Dec. 30 while its owners were out of town on vacation. They allege the group put an adult cat in the microwave and turned it on. A family friend taking care of the house found the cat. From the Star’s wire services
