NYC teen may face 2 years in prison for hamster murder

A 19-year-old teen is accused of choking and squeezing her 9-year-old sibling’s 4-ounce hamster and throwing it on the floor. “It was then thrown across the street, though a necropsy concluded the animal was probably already dead by the time that happened,” reports the AP. The teen may face 2 years in prison.
