Man allegedly places daughter's kitten in cage with a snake

SHERMAN, TX-- A Sherman man was arrested, Tuesday, after allegedly placing his daughte'rs kitten in a tank with a boa constrictor.

Sherman police say, Charles Watson, placed his daughter's 8 to 10 week old kitten in the tank, but they're not sure why.

The girl then called police.

When officers arrived, the kitten was still in the cage, but appeared to be unharmed.

Watson now faces charges of cruelty to non-livestock animals.

Police think Watson may have been drinking prior to the incident.

    Not approving or disapproving, but Is it considered cruelty to animals to put a mouse, or a rat, or a hamster, or frog, or any other small animal in the cage with a snake? They sell them at the pet stores as pets just like they do kittens?

      Perhaps the only time nature is cruel is when a human being is involved....

    Yes she is 18 and crazy!! She does this kind of thing for attention! I doubt anything she says is true! She gets mad at her father if she can't get money from him or if he won't let her and her worthless thug boyfriend stay at his place!! The cat wasn't in the tank when the cops got there it was in her arms!! She lies about everything!! Now while he's in jail they can stay in his place, pretty convenient for them!! They both are lazy and worthless!!

    all of you that don't have a problem with this how about you get in the cage and stay there until the snake gets hungry, would that be cruel? or how about you put your pet in there? would that be cruel?

    There are millions of unwanted animals that cost us a fortune to house and eventually dispose of. I propose that we take exotic snakes in the shelters and feed them the kittens and appropriately sized dogs and then sell the snake hides to boot, belt, and purse makers! Cut down on the population, save money of food, euthanization, disposal, while generating revenue! It's a win/win solution! Who is with me!?

      Why dont we just take you out and tie cement blocks to your feet and duct tape your hands. That would take care of some stupid population. Who is with me?

        You must be out there collecting all the diseased, starving, infested little kitties and giving them a nice home because you care so very much! Yes, better to let them die a long, slow, painful death or put them in shelters so we can throw money at them in nasty cages before injecting them with expensive chemicals to kill them before putting them in expensive incinerators. I feel terrible for being such an uncaring person who finds that whole process to be cruel and meant to serve the phony and shallow 'concerns' of good people like you. I'd rather put them to some use and make money. You'd rather see them suffer and waste taxpayer money in the process. You are SO superior! People are so full of IT.

    How old is the daughter? Some assumed it was a child. Others state she is an adult. We need more information and not just short a attention line. Story is seriously lacking.
