A heartless thug was caught on video kicking a cat, minding her own business, six feet through the air in front of a home at Guinness Trust flats, on Sidney Street, Derby. The two men then casually strolled away as if they had just kicked a coffee cup away as trash. The nasty man, wearing a fluorescent orange jacket, was seen on the family’s closed circuit television camera walking up to their family pet before kicking her in the face. The incident occurred on the afternoon of January 12.
According to the MetroUK, the force of the kick sent the cat named Millie flying into a backward flip into the air and hurled six feet landing on a grassy area. Millie suffered a broken jaw after the unprovoked attack. The cat’s owner called the RSPCA after Millie returned home with her serious injuries.
RSPCA Inspector Sarah Burrows viewed the video and released the following statement:
“The video clearly shows two men walking towards Millie and then one man kicking a cat very hard, resulting in her being thrown a few feet across the ground, before walking away. It is an unprovoked attack which has sadly left Millie with a suspected broken jaw. Inflicting such a horrific attack on a defenseless cat is sickening, and it’s important we track down the people responsible.”
Authorities are asking for the public’s help identifying the culprits responsible for the heinous act.
“We are appealing for information and are keen to hear from anyone who recognizes the person responsible for this. Anyone with information should contact us in complete confidence on 0300 123 8018. If prosecuted under the Animal Welfare Act of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal, a person could face up to six months in prison and a fine of up to £20,000.”
