Police Say a Mesa Man Tried to Feed a Kitten to a Python, Then Killed It Himself When the Snake Wouldn't
According to police, a Mesa man tried feeding a kitten to a python, and in his infinite wisdom, videotaped it.
But wait, it gets worse.
Against the better judgment of mother nature, the python showed the kitten mercy. Unfortunately, the scumbag who allegedly tried to feed the kitten to the python didn't.
Police say that 28-year-old Jeremy Tuffly threw the kitten on top of the python in an attempt to get the snake to kill it. When the snake failed to do so, police say Tuffly killed the kitten by kicking it across the yard.

Luckily, the sicko wanted to savor the moment the snake was supposed to eat the kitten, which is why this genius videotaped it.
The video, however, ended up in the hands of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, which is probably treating him more humanely than the snake treated the cat.
Tuffly was arrested and held on suspicion of animal cruelty, a felony.
Congratulations, Phoenix! We have the one guy on the planet who was out-classed by a snake. Hopefully, he can look on the bright side: If he doesn't like jail, at least he has Hell to look forward to.
