We bet you’ve seen several people who are not so emotional, but being heartless is something else altogether. And that’s what we can call Jonasia Simpson here. Simpson is a 16-year-old girl from Boston, US, who microwaved her pet turtle. But can you guess why?
Well, just for FUN! Yes, you read it right. The teen put the baby turtle into the microwave and killed the innocent animal. When asked why, she said that she was ‘bored’. What??? The 16-year-old posted a before and after picture of the incident on social media, thinking that it would be cool to flaunt the shameful act. What’s all the more shocking is that her mother knew about it, and just laughed it off, saying that it’s only a turtle.
I hate that people think that small creatures aren't the same as regular sized pets. Why would someone do this? pic.twitter.com/8WcE0OR4rw

There was a lot of outrage on social media, forcing Simpsons to delete the post. An online petition has been created with over 15,000 people urging the Boston Police Department to put animal cruelty charges against them.
The petition read –
‘Charges of animal cruelty must be brought against the two of them and they must be imprisoned or at the very least fined to the full extent of the law in the hopes that they never again get the opportunity to kill or harm another innocent, helpless animal.’
