An investigation has been launched by the RSPCA in Lancashire, United Kingdom, after two videos were posted online over the weekend showing a man holding cats face to face as they clawed each other. The person in the video is shown holding two black and white kittens by the scruffs of their neck as they are pushed together within a few inches of each others’ faces in a hostile manner and forced to fight.
According to the Mirror, the owner of the cats is believed to live in Blackburn. During the first video, he can be heard encouraging the animal cruelty by yelling, “Keep going, Fight!” A woman in the background is also heard encouraging the frightened kittens to claw at each other. And as if that cruelty wasn’t enough for the sick minds of these people, the next viral video is even worse. This time the defenseless kittens are seen hanging from a chandelier off the ceiling of the home. The cats try to grab the fixture, but in the next moment fall hard to the floor.
A RSPCA spokesperson has confirmed they are aware of the terrible videos and are actively pursuing an investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call 0300.123.8018.
