After a huge public backlash, the young man issued a public apology while his friend looked down in shame in a follow-up Twitter video.
“The Murung Raya Police through the Tanah Siang Police, have summoned the perpetrator who threw a cat that has gone viral in a video to give him a warning,” the police announced in a statement.
Authorities have also asked people to use extra thought before doing things that could hurt themselves or others.
Social media users, however were not satisfied with the police’s report and stated the bratty teen only apologized after he was caught and arrested.
There has been no update as to the cat’s condition. We can only hope he survived and was not injured.
