(Pawtucket-AP) -- A man has reportedly confessed to the drowning of several cats in the Pawtucket River more than a week ago.

Today�s Times of Pawtucket reports David Smith turned himself in at the Animal Shelter yesterday and confessed. Police charged him with a felony, malicious injury to or killing of animals.

Smith allegedly put five cats in a duffel bag and threw them off the Division Street bridge.

Three kittens initially drowned. The mother died later, meaning only one kitten survived.

A fisherman heard the splash, and reeled in the bag, saving the kitten. It has been adopted.

Police found another of the litter buried Smith�s backyard.
