MERIWETHER COUNTY, Ga. — A Georgia mother is accused of forcing her 12-year-old son to kill his pet hamster because of a bad report card.
It happened last Thursday at the family’s home, said Meriwether County Sheriff Steve Witlock.
Investigators said Lynn Geter made her son use a hammer to kill the hamster.
Geter was arrested Friday following an interview with investigators.
She is charged with battery, cruelty to children and cruelty to animals.
Investigators said Geter also violated probation and remains in jail.
