It has come to this. It seems in Italy, people now need to keep their pets locked up. A 23-year-old migrant from the Ivory Coast was caught cooking a cat on the sidewalk this morning near Livorno.  The below article has a video which we are in the process of sub-titling. It is disturbing. What you see is the man cooking the cat on the sidewalk while he is being berated by an Italian woman.

Man who cooked a cat at Campiglia Marittima

According to what the mayor of Campiglia Marittima, Alberta Ticciati, wrote, the man has been identified but not arrested. Repubblica Firenze (Florence) writes that the young African man is 23 years of age and comes from the Ivory Coast and confirms that there has been no arrest because the laws do not apply.

Since this morning, a video has been circulating, posted by a Facebook user, in which is seen a man who is cooking or burning a cat at Campiglia-Marittima. According to the press agency, ANSA, the man killed the cat and started to cook it lighting a fire on the sidewalk near the city station (Livorno/Leghorn). And from what has been reconstructed by the Carabinieri, who interceded this morning after more notifications, and who have identified the perpetrator as a 21-year-old foreigner who will be reported for killing an animal. The young man was then accompanied to the (Carabinieri) station  pending clarification of his status in Italy. At the moment, he does not appear to be listed as legal. The (Carabinieri) interceded this morning shortly after 7 in response to numerous calls from citizens.

According to what the mayor of Campiglia Marittima, Alberta Ticciati, wrote, the man has been identified but not arrested. Repubblica Firenze (Florence) writes that the young African man is 23 years of age and comes from the Ivory Coast and confirms that there has been no arrest because the laws do not apply.


He was an occupant at a reception center in the area of Livorno from which he left (or was kicked out-an aspect to be clarified) and now is listed without fixed abode. The young man has made an application for refugee status, but the request was rejected, and he presented an appeal: The proceeding now is at the Tribunal of Florence. There has been no arrest as Ceccardi writes (no violation is specified in  article 544 bis of the penal code, explain the investigators), but (there is) a report with release.)


Article 544 bis of the penal code specifies that anyone who, out of cruelty or without necessity, causes the death of an animal is punished by incarceration of 4 months to two years. The episode has been posted on Facebook pages of Susanna Ceccardi and Matteo Salvini complete with video.


"A chilling episode in its brutality, but unfortunately all true," also writes Susanna Ceccardi. "I congratulate the Carabinieri who took the torturer into custody, now we ask for punishment as an example because in our civilization, the domestic animals are left alone and deserve the maximum humanity and respect for all the unconditional love they offer without asking for anything in return," concludes the candidate of the Lega in the next regional elections in Tuscany.

The story has been spread also by Matteo Salvini, who increased the dose: "An upsetting scene, cruel and monstrous this morning in Tuscany, near Livorno. They tell me that the delinquent would be arrested, I hope that will be confirmed. It merits jail, and, if he immigrated illegally, expulsion; we don't want to see him walking around again!"

Both talk of an arrest which, in reality, has not occurred.
