Hernando deputies: Woman beat kittens with baseball bat
BROOKSVILLE – Hernando County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Brooksville woman accused of beating two kittens with a baseball bat in a public park and then encouraging her two children to add to the animals’ suffering.
Deputies say Wilana J. Frazier, 24, killed one kitten and severely injured the second, which later died. She then encouraged her two young children to throw one kitten against a tree and cut the other kitten’s neck.
Several witnesses saw the attack Friday at Hill N Dale Community Park in Brooksville.
Deputies charged Frazier with animal cruelty and contributing to the deliquency of minors. She was taken into custody and transported to Hernando County Jail.
