Editor’s note: I think there is a special room in hell for people who torture animals!
A kitten that was tortured with a pen before it was found in Mount Penn has died at the home of the woman who adopted it, authorities said Monday.
The kitten, which was about 5 months old, was rescued in March by a Mount Penn couple who found it with a pen stuck in its body near their house in the 2600 block of Perkiomen Avenue.
The kitten was taken to the Animal Rescue League of Berks County and underwent emergency surgery to remove the pen. League staff named her Susie.
