BRANSON, MISSOURI — A couple of Missouri teens are in jail after they killed a cat by dragging it behind an SUV.
The Branson Tri-Lakes News reports that 18-year-old Kyle Williams and his friends had tied a cat to the back bumper of a gold Jeep SUV.
They drove at speed down a road, forcing the small animal to run behind. The teens filmed the ordeal and laughed as the cat’s tiny legs struggled to keep up.
The cruel torture went on until the cat lost energy and eventually died. At some point, they even jerked the rope around to play with the animal’s dead body, and continued to drag it behind the car.
Williams also took a selfie with the dead cat and posted the disturbing photo on a Facebook meme group. Outraged users tipped off the authorities.
He has since been arrested and is facing felony animal abuse and armed criminal action charges.
Jordan Hall, the teen driving the vehicle, has also been caught, and is being charged with similar crimes. Both are in jail on a $15,000 bond.

This video by the CBC (Canada’s equivalent of PBS) explains a lot about Free-Range Kids!
What is “Free-Range Kids”? You have been dubbed “America’s Worst Mom” by the media. How did you earn this title? Were you a Free Range kid? How can you tell if a kid IS “Free-Range”? What prompted you to found the Free Range Kids movement? What is a helicopter parent? Why were our parents different from today’s parents? Your new book has a section titled “The A-Z review of everything you might be worried about” in which you debunk many parental fears. Did you come across any particularly outrageous parental concerns? You’ve offered readers a number of “Free Range Commandments,” one of which is “Fail!” But we don’t want our kids to fail…do we?
You are raising your kids in New York City, is it harder to be a Free Range parent in the city? You have experienced the media from all angles, as a newspaper columnist, a news consumer and most recently as the sensational subject of a media storm. Has your view of the media changed as a result of this? What should we do to liberate our kids without going crazy with worry? What is “Free-Range Kids”? Free-Range Kids is a commonsense approach to parenting in these overprotective times. You have been dubbed “America’s Worst Mom” by the media. How did you earn this title? In 2008, I let my then-9-year-old ride the subway by himself. He’d been asking us — my husband and me — to please take him someplace and let him find his way home by himself. So my husband and I discussed this. Our boy knows how to read a map, he speaks the language and we’re New Yorkers. We’re on the subway all the time.That’s how it came to be that one sunny Sunday, after lunch at McDonald’s, I took him to Bloomingdales — and left him in the handbag department.I didn’t leave him unprepared, of course! I gave him a map, a MetroCard, quarters for the phone and $20 for emergencies. Bloomingdale’s sits on top of a subway station on our local line, and it’s always crowded with shoppers. I believed he’d be safe. I believed he could figure out his way. And if he needed to ask someone for directions — which it turns out he did — I even believed the person would not think, “Gee, I was about to go home with my nice, new Bloomingdale’s shirt. But now I think I’ll abduct this adorable child instead.”
