People are feeding
kittens to snakes






COVINGTON: A local animal rescue organization is getting reports of people taking free kittens that have been advertised on social media or on for sale sites and using them as food instead of as pets.

The "free kittens" advertisements are all over social media and for sale sites. Many of the posts include a line that rescuers said might have good intentions but could be deadly: "kittens free to a good home."

"You never know what you're turning them over to," Laura Bamberger, founder of the Tri-State Noah Project, said.

Bamberger said that they are getting more and more reports of people taking free kittens that are intended to be pets and using them as snake food. She said that the reports have come from different places in the Tri-State including Covington, Hamilton and Middletown.
