Adoptive parents worry about release of "sociopathic" animal killer

Warning: this story could be disturbing to some listeners.

Last week, CBC broke the story that a 22-year-old B.C. woman who has admitted to taking delight in killing animals and fantasizing about shooting homeless people is set to be released on probation with strict conditions. Kayla Bourque will be released in the Lower Mainland in two months. But the Prince George couple who adopted her years ago are concerned she hasn't received the treatment she needs to deal with her homicidal tendencies. In an exclusive interview, the parents spoke to Daybreak reporter Marissa Harvey. They spoke on the condition of anonymity, and their voices have been changed to protect their identities. They do not share the same last name as Bourque.
