The video, which is making rounds on social media, shows a teen holding a cat. It seems innocent until the 10-second video takes a turn for the worst. The teenager launches the cat like a football into the street. The poor cat is screeching and howling as it hits the ground. It’s heart-breaking and it won’t be posted here as we believe in stopping the abuse by speaking out against the video.
Cops were involved in the depraved incident. The Fontana Police Department tweeted Saturday that it had been contacted by tons of concerned people regarding the video…
“We are aware of a video that depicts the abuse of a cat. We thank everyone for contacting our department with the video. It has been determined that the incident took place outside our city and we are working with the appropriate jurisdiction to find the cat and the suspect.”
The authorities have posted a few updates that explain the cat’s leg was broken by the abusive teen. As of the time of publication, the cat throwing teen is still being hunted by the police. They do know the identity of the 16-year-old who broke the feline’s leg or his own amusement, but cannot release his name. The police are attempting to locate him and he could be facing a felony of animal cruelty charges.

It’s important that we speak out against animal cruelty and abuse. You don’t need to be an animal-lover to stop abuse. Be the voice for those who are voiceless, especially in a world where ignorance like this exists. Start by reporting your suspicions of cruelty to your local law enforcement agency, humane organization, animal control agency or taxpayer-funded animal shelter.

This is so sad, but something that we need to be aware of! We have rescued two dogs, and while neither seems to have had a particularly traumatic past, it breaks my heart that some animals have to go through that!
Oh my goodness poor little guy, I’m such a big animal person and stuff like this always breaks my heart. A friend of mine just started a shelter for absused animals and I just want to help them all!
Did not knew people abuse cats. You should see how our country treats dog sometimes, it’s seriously bad, people abused dogs for very very selfish reason. Cannot even tell you here. I hope he deserves whatever karma has planned.
I fail to understand how some people abuse innocent animals! My heart breaks every time I see an animal in pain. This is so sad!
We havea huge problem with stuff like this here in Dubai, the number of times the police have had to hunt down some sicko from a viral video be it abuse of a dog or cat. It turns my stomach, why and how can people think that it is okay to treat another living being like a toy.
OMG this is awful! I don’t get people who enjoy abusing innocent animals, I once found some kids tying a cat to a chair and throwing small rocks at him. when I found them he had already a damaged eye and a broken paw, as well as many wounds :/
I don’t understand why some people try to hurt those innocent animals! I feel awful every time when I see someone hurting them!
Humans are vile creatures we hurt the things that have no control over their lives! This is awful! I really hope he faces the charges and cleans up his act!
