Alleged: 14 year old
Geraldton police, on the Western Australian mid west coast, have charged a 14-year-old boy with animal cruelty-related charges after the death of a pet cat.
It is alleged the teenager had an argument with a neighbour before setting a dog onto the cat in the Geraldton suburb of Rangeway. Police allege he then jumped on the cat repeatedly, breaking its ribs and killing it. They say they are concerned for the teenager's mental health.
