Negative publicity and low pay has Kansas law enforcement agencies struggling to recruit new officers at a time when agencies have hundreds of openings but not enough qualified applicants to fill them.
Hutchinson police say a couple has killed a kitten by taking turns throwing it against doors and walls.
Det. Curtis Black said the suspects were upset that the 5-month-old yellow tabby kept “using the restroom inside.”
Authorities found the dead kitten in the couple’s home Saturday while responding to a disturbance.
The animal’s body was taken from the home for a necropsy to be performed.
The couple was arrested and released on bond.
