Do you think it is OK for a six year old to kill animals? How would you handle this?

My son has a neighborhood friend that kills animals. 

He has killed fish and frogs with knives. He has also knocked countless nest out of trees and broken the necks and cracked the wings off of these birds.

He has been doing this for nine months. We are new to the neghborhood and I have tried my best  to keep him from doing these things with no progress.

I have taken some action with suprising results which I will post later.

What do you think of the situation? Is the kid a normal boy? Or does he have some serious mental disorder?

did you really just ask if it was ok for a kid to kill animals??

NO its not ok. the kid needs help before he graduates to parentless kids on the playground as his next experiment.

Sounds like a felon in the making. Somebody needs to intervene now while he is young.

Killing animals at a young age is what serial killers and people with other mental problems have in common. Someone needs to try and help him.

I'd report it as animal abuse and my kid would be punished severly for hurting any animal. Sounds like a future serial killer to me. Sorry to be so quick to judge. Lol

Isn't that a common trait that almost every serial killer had when they were kids?

Is it OK?????

Um...NO!!!!

Serial killer alert!  If I were you, I'd keep that kid faaaar away from my kid/s and off my property and I'd keep an eye out for the neighborhood animals.  Oh, and jot his name somewhere so you can say you knew him way back when, when he turns up on Dateline.
