I don't like the word -rights- when it comes to animals, that's more PETA than what most of us are... Anyway, here's the article. **** only got 1yr!
The fur started flying in a Bronx Courthouse when a teenager charged with baking her ex-girlfriend's cat in an oven taunted animal rights activists minutes after she pleaded guilty to animal cruelty.
"It's dead, b----," said Cheyenne Cherry, 17 as she stuck out her tongue at the half a dozen cat crusaders who came to show support for Tiger Lily, the feline she admitted to roasting like a Thanksgiving turkey in June 2009.
The unrepentive act was aimed at Sharon Tuerlings, a Levittown mortgage saleswoman who moonlights as an animal rescuer. She flipped Cherry the double bird when she was exiting the courtroom.
"It felt good to look at her ugly face. She should have gotten a longer sentence," said Tuerlings.
Cherry, who felt scorned by her lesbian lover and took out her rage on the woman's cat, pleaded guilty to charges of attempted burglary and animal cruelty and will likely serve one year in jail. Cherry will also prohibited from owning a pet for three years.
According to Bronx assistant District Attorney, Jennifer Troiano, Cherry's 14-year-old partner-in-crime was found to be more culpable for the putting cat in the oven, which started a fire at the Mott Haven home of Cherry's ex-paramour, Valerie Hernandez, 19.
