    IN - Man Accused Of Forcing Daughter, 7, To Kill Pet Cat

    These poor kids! How horrible for them, especially the girl. Bless the little boys heart for trying to say the cat.
    What an evil, sick dad they have.

    MUNCIE, Ind. A man was jailed Thursday on charges he forced his 7-year-old daughter to kill the family cat by holding a knife in her hand and making her stab the pet.
    Danield J. Collins, 39, told his children during a visit to his home on Sunday that he wanted them to "learn how to kill" and gave his 11-year-old son a knife to do it, according to an affidavit filed in the case.
    The boy tried to save the cat by hiding it under a sofa bed and putting ketchup on a knife when Collins went to the bathroom. But when the father realized the cat was not dead, he forced his daughter to hold the knife and then held her hand tightly as he drove the knife into the animal, Muncie police Detective Jami Brown said.
    Police said Collins stabbed and strangled the cat himself, and told his son to throw the dead pet in the trash. Officers retrieved the carcass to be used as evidence.
    The children told family members on Monday, the day after the alleged killing, according to the affidavit. The children told police their father was drunk when they arrived at his home and that he's a different person when he's drunk, it said. The siblings live with their grandparents.

    Sorry for being so blunt,
    but I hope this posman dies a slow painful death.

    These children will need extensive counseling.
    Poor little kids.

    Yeah, can you even imagine being forced at that age to do something so horrible? Or ANY age for that matter!

    I would have accidentally on purpose slipped and stabbed the father.

    How can any person make a young child commit such an horrific act, I know my opening sentence is wrong, but I was so mad when reading this thread that it was the first thing that came into my head. In reality I would never harm anyone, but this guy will probably get away with a light sentence or a slap on the wrist. Totally gobsmacked.

    Where is the mother???????????????????????????
    Why did the grandparents leave the children with him if he was that drunk.
    I wonder who is going to be the sicko to fork up the bail to get this creep out.
    Furthermore, were I a defense attorney I'd risk losing my job before taking this case.

    I would personally like to get my hands on that man and...........in lieu of being band from WS I will say no more!!!!

    So often times it happens that we live our life in chains, and we never even know we have the key. ...Eagles, "Already Gone"

    Nuttin right about that. Maybe he wasn't drunk when the grands dropped the kids off. Maybe they held on to hope the dude would get his *it together. Maybe they were just plumb worn out. Maybe the mom is deceased, on the street or just out there. They got a dangerous man locked up now. Poor, poor little girl.

    Poor kids. I hope that this will be enough to keep them away from that POS. I hope that the kids get some therapy after this. I know if I was forced to do that, I would need some.

    I would be completely traumatized by something like that. Just the thought of sticking a knife into a human or animal makes me cringe. I hope the children are able to overcome this and will never have to see their "father" again.

    What reasoning would someone have to do something so sinister and evil?

    I'd like to take a knife to this monster and see how he likes it.

    Those poor children. This is going to leave them completely traumatized.

    Good Lord!
    There are so many evil ****s out there!
    These kids will forever remember this and they are changed forever too because of it!

    This is so so sick on so many levels.
    God bless these children.
    Some poor children really don't ever have a chance, do they?

    Justice for Travis


    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    That's just awful!

    I'm glad the police are involved at this point. It seems to me like anyone who thinks it's important to teach their kids "how to kill" wouldn't blink about killing a person, either. Hopefully LE and the family have heard the warning loud and clear!
    Just thinkin' out loud....

    I know several men in their 50s who were made to drown kittens by their fathers/uncles, etc...not too long ago, this was considered a good way to deal with domestic animals you didn't need or want - in some places it still is.

    But I think we've come a long way in terms of our respect for animal life. I'm sure this young girl will need real help getting over what she was forced to do. With a Dad like that, I'm sure she'll need help for plenty of things beyond this one incident.

    Me too. I think in days gone by in more rural areas, anyway, it was (unfortunately) probably the more humane route. Better that than letting them starve to death and be riddled with disease? It still breaks my heart to think about
