Miracle / NEWS CENTER

PORTLAND, Maine -- Two teenage girls have each been sentenced to 100 hours of community service for putting an 8-week-old kitten in a microwave last year. Both girls, who were 16 at the time, were originally charged with a felony after the incident.

The charges were lessened to misdemeanor animal cruelty charges. The names of the girls were not released because they are minors.

They were originally charged by South Portland Police last September after a video of the cat in a microwave appeared on social media.

The kitten was not harmed in the incident. It was named Miracle after it was brought to the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland.
