This shocking CCTV footage shows the moment a teenage boy grabs a defenceless cat and throws it over a fence and into a garden patrolled by two large dogs. The film, taken in Shetcliffe Lane, Bradford, shows the boy walking along with a friend, before grabbing the cat by the scruff of its neck and launching it into the garden.
According to RSPCA inspectors, the feline victim was left "severely shaken" by the incident. The two boys have yet to be identified. Inspector Rachel Oprysk said the owner of the cat “heard a commotion in her backyard and when she went out she saw her cat land on the paved area and run off in sheer terror”.
Oprysk added: “We believe these boys threw the cat over the garden boundary with the intention of her being attacked by the Rottweiler and Alaskan Shepherd on the other side. Luckily the garden they chose was the cat’s home so the dogs were used to the cat and did not see her as an intruder. The black and white female cat was shaken and scared but, thankfully, otherwise unhurt.”
The RSPCA have appealed for anyone with information to call them on 0300 123 8018.
