Alleged: Michael Anthony Clark

An Ohio man allegedly threw two kittens inside a dumpster Thursday night, according to a report filed with the Huntington Police Department.

Police said Michael Anthony Clark, 52, of Columbus, was seen throwing two black kittens into a dumpster at 555 W. 14th St. in Huntington around 10:30 p.m.

The report stated Clark was later found in the 1200 block of Fifth Avenue. Police said he smelled like alcohol, had glassy eyes and slurred speech. Clark refused to let the police fingerprint him.

Clark was charged with two felony counts of cruelty to animals, public intoxication and failure to process.

The kittens were taken to the Cabell-Wayne Animal Shelter. The staff said the kittens appear to be three weeks old and have taken to another mother cat. They will be ready for adoption in approximately three weeks.
