Bat-wielding students kill their mascot
EAST BERNARD, Texas (AP) — Four members of East Bernard’s two-time defending Class 2A championship baseball team face animal cruelty charges in the death of Tiger, an unofficial mascot at the baseball park where they play.
Authorities say the players admitted beating the gray, striped tabby with bats and running over her with a truck.
On Tuesday afternoon, bouquets of flowers were strewn under the concession stand that had been considered home for the cat, also called the Koym Road Kid.
Four East Bernard High School baseball players, who admitted to beat
ing the gray striped tabby with bats and running her over with a truck, face animal cruelty charges.
“I was just shocked,” said Julie Kubes, who helps mn the concession stand where Tiger lived. “I’ve been looking after her for three years.”
The East Bernard Brahmas, who won Class 2A state championships in 1994 and 1995, have been a source of pride in the school district of 827 students and the surrounding farming community of 3,500. Wharton County Sheriffs investigator Sgt. Carlton Hudgins said seven team members gave statements about the March 16 attack.

Bernard resident, said concession stand operators and others provided Tiger with food, water and medical care. “She was the resident mouser and pet fur ball for the little kids hanging around there who were too little to play ball,” Michulka said.
Three of the seven players who came forward told investigators they put Tiger in a bag and beat her with baseball bats. A fourth said he ran over the cat with a pickup truck. Hudgins said the carcass was first dumped in a dry creek bed, but other teammates, fearful the others would be found out, threw the carcass into the San Bernard River.
There are no words to express our gratitude and appreciation to all our relatives and friends for their prayers, cords, flowers, and food during our time of grief. We also wont to acknowledge the hospital staff at McKenna Memorial Hospital.
