Kitten dies after abuse from kids
Rochester, N.Y. -- Tobie, an 8-week-old kitten, has died after a group of kids threw him repeatedly against a brick wall.
A local man was driving down Lincoln Street near Clifford Avenue when he saw the children hurting the kitten.
The man forced the kids to hand over the injured animal, and rushed him to Rochester Animal Services.
Tobie suffered a broken femur, broken diaphragm and a diaphragmatic hernia, and died Tuesday evening.
Rochester Animal Services enlisted the help of Another Chance Pet Rescue, a not-for-profit volunteer organization. The money donated towards Tobie's recovery will be put towards the recovery of another animal, in Tobie's name.
According to representatives at Another Chance Pet Rescue, Lollypop Farm is investigating for animal abuse.
