NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A Nacogdoches man found himself behind bars Sunday night after police say he kicked and killed a kitten.

According to the police report, officers responded to a call on the 700 block of Fulgham Street at 8:10 p.m. after a resident reported seeing Juan Rodriguez, 36, stomp and kick a kitten across the yard, causing it to die.

According to Nacogdoches Police spokesman Sgt. Greg Sowell, the crime is a state-jail felony because it involves a non-livestock animal.
