I’m a sociopathic degenerate, do you know my name?

ARAN has obtained full footage of the cruel and barbaric, spine-chilling killing of two innocent kittens. Although this footage had previously been removed from internet sites when originally posted by other sources, we have put this material back out in the public arena for all to see. Our reason for doing so? We are desperate to not only apprehend the person (s) responsible for the kitten cruelty, but we also want to show people around the world the dirty-face of animal abuse and the cowards that get sick kicks from it. For as long as footage like this is not shown, then the curtain on the seedy world of animal abuse will never be ripped back. ARAN have joined many other animal groups to play our part in getting those responsible and exposing this awful cruelty case, we can put you in touch with those investigating this case.
For anyone wishing to view the footage of the kitten cruelty please click here (Fore-warning – the footage is spine-chilling and heart-breaking.) Please note, we have also obtained pictures of the person in the video having a ‘sex act’ with the dead kitten, shortly after he puts both kittens into an empty cold fridge. We seriously need to make a big noise around this cruelty case, and, we desperately need to nab the person (s) involved. In the videos you will also hear a girl laughing in the background which is rightly disturbing. We are hoping that he/they will be caught before next week.
Please ensure everyone on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and other social networking sites are made aware of this most sickening act of cruelty, and please ensure you re-double your efforts to stamp out animal abuse without delay.
ARAN: ‘Fighting animal abuse around the world’
P.S. At the time of this appeal being sent out, the online videos were active and currently viewable, however we do anticipate this could change.

A sick teenager who filmed himself killing two kittens by placing them inside an airtight bag and using a vacuum cleaner to suck out the air was being hunted by internet users across the world today.
In horrifying footage posted online, the young thug is seen gently stroking the tiny tabby cats before placing them in the bag.
As John Lennon’s Merry Christmas (War Is Over) plays in the background, he calmly seals the bag and attaches a vacuum cleaner hose.

In distressing scenes, too graphic to be posted on MailOnline, the cleaner is then switched on and the air is slowly sucked out of the bag.
The mewing kittens can be seen wriggling around and clawing to escape as the polythene tightens around them.
After switching off the cleaner, the sick teen opens the bag and proudly holds up the body of one of the kittens for his camera, before displaying them on his bed.
The horrifying footage has prompted outrage across the internet, with hundreds of amateur sleuths attempting to identify the cat killer.
The ‘snuff’ film – a term for killings filmed for people’s gratification – was originally uploaded to the YouTube website, but was later removed.
It appears to have been made solely by the youngster, who is seen smoking a cigarette and wearing a blue hooded jumper in a dingy bedroom.
The footage is reminiscent of a film posted online recently of a girl in Bugojna, Bosnia, who threw puppies into a fast-flowing river. After a web hunt for her she was quizzed by police but never prosecuted.
A Facebook group entitled Find the Kitten Vacuumer has attracted almost 1,000 members.
One member, Aron Bas, wrote: ‘I can’t bring myself to watch these beautiful and innocent kittens take their last breath. I hope the evil scumbag is found and locked away.’
Others expressed fears that someone capable of killing two helpless animals could go on to kill people.
Speculation among the group’s members has suggested the killer is from Latvia or another Eastern European country.
One post said the IP address of the web user who posted the footage on YouTube showed the uploading took place in Hamburg, Germany.
Animal rights groups have vowed to help track down the teenager and PETA – People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals – said it was following up a number of leads.
A spokesman said: ‘PETA U.S.’s Cruelty Investigations Department is actively following up possible leads to determine the identity and whereabouts of the man in the video.
‘Animal abusers are cowards who take their issues out on the most defenceless beings available to them. The pain and fear that these tiny kittens must have experienced is unimaginable.
‘Anyone capable of carrying out such a merciless and callous act should concern us all, as research into criminology and psychology shows that people who commit acts of cruelty to animals are likely to pose a danger to the entire community.
‘We strongly urge anyone with any information regarding this case to please contact PETA U.S.’s Cruelty Investigations Department.’
An RSPCA spokesman said it would prosecute the person involved if the killings took place in Britain.
