Kitten half buried in concrete on former minister's property
A live kitten has been found encased in concrete on the property of a former Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints minister.
The kitten was found on the Colorado City property of Isaac Wyler, by another former minister called Andrew Chatwin.
Chatwin found the kitten in a metal tube used to construct cement posts.
When the local sheriff was phoned about the cat, the sheriff reportedly chuckled and said he would have just thrown dirt on it.
At the moment the US justice department is suing the sheriffs of Colorado City and Hillsdale, Utah in part for acting as agents for the church, and denying former members police services, housing and utilities.
According to the Huffington post Chatwin got the cat out by cutting out the post and digging out its footing. He took it to an animal shelter in Utah where it died a few days later.
Chatwin told the Huffington post he believes this was a message from his former church, one of the largest fundamentalist Mormon sects to split from the Church of the Latter Day Saints.
They split after the main body suspended them for continuing to practise Polygamy.
This is the same church that recently hit the news over one of its leaders, Warren Jeffs being sentenced for child abuse. Two of his wives were underage.
The church is considered a hate-group due to its views on race, with Jeffs having once remarked “the black race is the people through which the devil has always been able to bring evil unto the earth.”
