Kitten chased by kids with rocks has been adopted

RACINE (WITI) -- A kitten that had been chased by kids with rocks and rescued by a bystander has been adopted from the Wisconsin Humane Society Racine Campus. She was reportedly adopted by a woman from New Berlin.

Wayne Clingman of Racine and his wife were relaxing on Monday night, May 20th when they heard children shouting outside their home. A toddler was chasing a kitten in front of their house; on the child’s heels were several older children, holding rocks and stones.

Clingman intercepted the children and rescued the kitten from what could have been a tragic ending. An animal lover himself, he had to intercede.

Veterinarians assessed the kitten's health and planned to treat her for any injuries or illnesses.

Like all adoptable cats at the WHS Racine Campus, June is now spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and dewormed. When she is adopted, June will also go home with a certificate for a free veterinary exam, as well as 30 days of free ShelterCare Pet Insurance.
