A Pennsylvania appeals court has upheld an animal cruelty conviction for a woman who pierced kittens to give them a “goth” look. The Superior Court of Pennsylvania upheld the conviction of Holly Crawford of Sweet Valley, Pa. She was prosecuted based on a tip from an investigator for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, who responded to an ad seeking $100 for each kitten, the New York Times reports.

She was sentenced to six months of home detention.
