Police: Largo woman killed kitten by throwing it against fence

LARGO — A 27-year-old woman accused of killing a kitten by throwing it against a wooden fence was arrested last week.

Shontia James of Largo stepped out of her home along Roosevelt Boulevard on July 22, grabbed a kitten sitting in a grassy area, and "with a serious amount of force," threw the kitten against a wooden fence, killing it instantly, according to an arrest affidavit. The kitten was about 15 weeks old.

James later admitted to Largo police that she threw the kitten, police said.

She faces an animal cruelty charge. She was booked into the Pinellas County Jail, but was released hours later on $2,500 bail.
