A man and a teenaged boy have been charged under the Animal Protection Act after a kitten was burned at the Craven Country Jamboree over the weekend.

Mounties found an injured kitten at a festival campsite on Saturday after receiving a report of animal abuse.

“Our members dealt with a young kitten that was abused and is now in the care of a local vet,” RCMP Insp. Ted Munro said Sunday morning. “The individual responsible for that has been evicted from the campsite.”

“This is not something that we would ever support,” Kim Blevins, director of marketing for the Craven Country Jamboree, said Sunday. “We love animals, we love pets and we know that 99.95 per cent of our fans love animals as well.”

The clinic updated the kitten’s status early Sunday morning, saying the kitten is doing well and has been named Jamboree.

The two accused are scheduled to appear in court in Regina on Sept. 19.

Police say they will not be releasing the names of the accused.
