In Almeria, Spain, the Partido Animalista Contra el Maltrato Animal (PACMA) posted a disturbing Instagram video on Sunday showing a group of teens forcing a kitten to smoke a cigarette. The organization condemned the cruelty and described the incident as “terrible.”
In the brief video, the kids could be heard laughing and making jokes as one person held the kitten upside down by his legs and dipped its tiny head into a glass of beer. Then another kid shoved a lighted cigarette into its mouth. The defenseless kitten is then shaken so he “dances” on the table; still more laughter.
The animal advocacy organization have informed both the national police and the juvenile prosecutor, demanding an investigation be started. Animal abuse is a criminal act under articles 337 of the Penal Code.
Acts of animal cruelty continue to be shown on social media – too many times there have been no punishments. How does anyone expect egregious crimes like this to stop if the guilty are not punished?
