ATHENS, Tenn. (AP) -- Athens police believe a 16-year-old girl is responsible for cooking a cat inside an oven and drowning two kittens.
According to a police report, the teenager went to a nearby library on Friday, called her mother at work and told her something bad had happened.
The Daily Post-Athenian reports that when officers arrived at the apartment, they found a "fully-cooked" cat inside the stove and two kittens submerged in about four inches of water in the kitchen sink.
Charges have not been filed against the girl, but she is being treated at a mental health facility.
Prosecutors suggested the girl receive treatment, but police say charges in the case could be filed if another incident occurs.
