Jordan Lucas: Kitten Torture Video Leads To Animal Abuse Charge

A Vancouver man who allegedly videotaped himself violently torturing a kitten for more than 50 minutes on his cell phone has been arrested, according to the SPCA.

Jordan Lucas, 28, originally from Vernon, B.C. was arrested in Richmond on Thursday and charged with one count of animal cruelty.

SPCA cruelty manager Marcie Moriarty said the “horrifying” video was discovered after a woman purchased a used cell phone.

“To her horror, the cell phone still contained a video lasting more than 50 minutes of a helpless kitten being violently abused and tortured,” she said.

Moriarty said the abuse included throwing the black and white kitten against furniture, punching, slapping, strangling, asphyxiation and spinning the black and white kitten around with a cord around its neck.

At several points during the video the kitten groaned, cried and appeared to be injured and disoriented.

Moriarty said a male hand with a distinctive tattoo was visible in the video and police were able to identify Lucas based on the tattoo.

Const. Lindsey Houghton said Lucas has a lengthy criminal record including 12 convictions for assault, robbery, uttering threats, possession, mischief and failing to comply.

Moriarty said they don’t know whether the kitten is still alive and investigators will be speaking to Lucas Friday to determine what happened to the cat.

“This type of pre-meditated torture, the violence link and, yes, some people might just think ‘it’s a kitten,’ but that display of behaviour is a warning sign.”

Lucas appeared in Vancouver court on Friday for a bail hearing.

Yeah, it takes a real badass with tattoos to torture a creature the size of his hand. Ugh, I was kind of hesitant to even read this because I didn't want to know how he actually tortured the poor animal. And now that they don't even know if the kitty is alive.... arrrg. What a P.O.S.

When I hear stories of child and/or animal abuse it makes we want to adopt every child and every animal just so that I can know that there are none left out there in the world where they can be taken advantage of
