Before and unaware what is about to happen to it – the turtle pre-microwaved
A teenager told the world she put her turtle in the mircowave and the internet has gone crazy.
Jonasia Simpson posted a picture of the before and after of the turtle’s death in her microwave on social media but now has gone to ground because of the abuse she is suffering.
Twitter users were outraged and quickly began posting threats and abuse towards the turtle microwaver, who is believed to be an American teenager from Boston.
Her mother was allegedly informed who laughed the matter off, and now she has been getting abuse too.
An online petition has already launched in a bid to get Boston Police Department to press animal cruelty charges.
After the microwaving – the internet went in meltdown over the turtle killing
The petition says: ‘Jonasia Simpson put her family’s pet turtle in their microwave, cruelly and inhumanely putting it to death for no reason other than that she was bored.
‘Her mother, Shanitha Blocker, was made aware of the atrocious and horrendous act, and instant of taking action or disciplining her daughter, she laughed and supported her daughter’s actions.’
‘Not only did Jonasia kill her family pet, and not only did her mother support the actions, but they have shown together a complete disregard for the lives and welfare of all animals.’
‘Charges of animal cruelty must be brought against the two of them and they must be imprisoned or at the very least fined to the full extent of the law in the hopes that they never again get the opportunity to kill or harm another innocent, helpless animal.’
