I thought this news is kind of sick and weird, but soo kesian the hamster!
Sure, many parents can be strict about homework and grades, but one Georgia mom allegedly took discipline a step too far when she demanded that her son's pet be killed as punishment. Now she's facing some punishment of her own in the county jail.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that 38-year-old mom Lynn Middlebrooks Geter was arrested after she forced her 12-year-old son to kill his pet hamster with a hammer as a punishment for earning a bad grade. The boy told a teacher about the incident, which reportedly happened at the family's home in Warm Springs, Ga. The teacher reported the mom to the state's Division of Family and Child Services and the local child welfare authorities then called police. The Meriwether County sheriff arrested Geter, who was charged with one count each of animal cruelty, child cruelty and battery. She was being held at the Meriwether County Jail, 90 minutes outside of Atlanta, according to the newspaper report.
And the above is the pic of the mom and even she looks kinda scary. And somehow reminds me of Hannibal Lecter. Can't she just lecture her son like a normal mom usually do or even ground him for the weekend or something. I mean apalah dosa the hamster, it's not as if the hamster was the one who got bad grade.
Anyway the only binatang that I made my son kill is semut, and that is not even binatang, that is a super small insect!
