RICHMOND, Ky. (WKYT) - A man accused of beating a kitten with a golf club has been charged.
Around 7:30 p.m. Friday, the Madison County Sheriff's Office charged 32-year-old Gary L. Foster, Junior with torture of a cat.
Witnesses say Foster slammed the kitten, now named Lucky, against a wall, then beat his legs with a golf club.
We're told Lucky had surgery to repair his legs Friday. His prognosis is said to be good, but he may need a blood transfusion and more surgery.
Lucky is now being cared for in Louisville. A group of people, including the man who rescued him, was able to raise $4,500 for Lucky's care.
According to the sheriff's office, Foster is scheduled to be in court on September 24 at 9 a.m. at the Madison County Hall of Justice.
