Its official: don't mess with kittens.
Earlier in October, the Miami Herald was all over the horrific saga of several kittens and a cat that one man said he saw thrown from a moving truck merging onto South Florida's craziest highway -- Interstate 95.
One adult cat survived. Three kittens died.
And the suspected kitten tosser did see some punishment. He was fired.
But this wasn't enough for some folks. Here at the Miami Herald's Broward County outpost, we've gotten calls demanding the person be sent to jail, asking for help filing a civil lawsuit and offering fisticuffs in retaliation. Anyone in doubt can read the pages of comments on the website.
Or you can believe this clip from one of the several phone messages Crime Scene received in the aftermath of the kitten deaths.
"I've been keeping up everyday with the condition of the mother," said one caller who gave her name too quickly to make out. "I want to file a civil suit against the horrible person who did this."
