In a disturbing act of animal cruelty on Monday, a supermarket clerk fromWuxi Lu,located in the southern Jiangsu province of China, has been accused of throwing a tiny, stray kitten out of the store and flinging it to the street with such force that the defenseless animal died just minutes later.
According to Thatsmag.com, the cashier from the supermarket chain Liahus, roughly picked up the trapped kitten by her head and neck, walked to the front door and tossed the kitten outside in front of a store full of irate customers.
“I hit him trying to stop him but was too late, then ran after the kitten,” stated an American eyewitness Lisa Movius. “It couldn’t move. it’s pupils were huge and eyes bulging out, and it died a few minutes later.”
When authorities arrived, the shop clerk tried to unsuccessfully press charges against Movius for trying to hit him. The police made the heartless culprit apologize, although Lisa stated it was in no way sincere; the worker claimed the kitten scratched him. Sadly, the animal cruelty laws in China are anything but effective, and tragically most animals do not get any protection against egregious acts such as done by this mindless fool.
In a brave attempt to get some justice for the innocent little victim of cruelty, Movius wrote a letter to the supermarket chain asking them to fire the employee, however the company has yet to comment on the subject.
Rest in peace innocent little kitten. Your life never had a chance to begin.
