California Police Investigating Teen Seen in Disturbing Cat-Throwing Video

A shocking and graphic video posted to the social media site, Snapchat that shows a teenage boy throwing a cat named Spots into the street is under investigation by police in San Bernardino County, California.

The horrific 10-second video is said to have been filmed in Ontario, California. The 16-year-old, identified on the social media platform as Charlie, is seen standing in a front lawn holding Spots with both hands, then throwing her high into the air. The video shows the cat landing in the middle of the street and you can hear her screaming in pain. (We are not sharing the video as it is too graphic and disturbing.)

The video ends there, but officials said Spots survived the ordeal with a broken leg:


According to NBC San Diego:

The cat now has a cast on one leg and wrapping on her other front leg. The vet says irregular blood tests suggests she suffered internal injuries as well. She’ll stay at the animal hospital so that vets can monitor her progress.

As of Sunday morning, police announced that they know the identity of the 16-year-old but they are not releasing his name due to his age.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing. The suspect could be facing a felony animal cruelty charge.

      At 16 years old he is not a child kids is 14 have been punished as an adult. he knew what he was doing would injure this animal if not kill the cat. his parents should be find raising such a disrespectful son. he should be treated as an adult is he knew this would kill the cat or cripple the cat. his parents have nothing to be proud of in what they raised. he should be placed all over the internet and the school kids should avoid him at all costs. this will show everyone that they have parents that raise their children right.
