British woman who microwaved kitten to death in act of revenge against owner jailed 168 days

LONDON (AFP) - A British woman who microwaved a kitten to death in an act of revenge was jailed for 168 days on Wednesday. Gina Robins, 31, put the 10-week-old, black and white pet in the microwave after its owner reported the mother of three's abusive partner to the police. Robins, from Torquay on the southwest English coast, was found guilty of animal cruelty in a one-day trial last month. On Feb 15 last year, she microwaved the kitten while at the home of its owner Sarah Knutton - days after her then-friend had reported an incident to police involving Robins' partner outside the same house.
