Posted: Updated:

ATHENS, AL (WAFF) - Athens Police charged a man with 22 counts of animal cruelty after investigators discovered a "cat room" which he said he used to kill kittens.

Police received a report on Sept. 24 about dead kitten carcasses found in the area of Bullington Road.

During an investigation, officers spoke with Ronald Fraser Golden, who admitted to buying kittens from Craigslist, naming them, and then killing them.

Golden told investigators he had a "cat room" where he would throw the kittens on the floor, stomp on them or "wring their necks" to kill them. Golden gave officers consent to search his property, where investigators found five dead kittens in a brushy area at the back of the property. Investigators also found two kittens and two dogs that were alive.
