A teenage thug has been caught on camera hurling a frightened cat over a 2.4 metre (8ft) high fence.
The boy, who is seen in the CCTV footage walking with a friend, picks up the defenceless animal by the scruff of the neck and throws her to two dogs on the other side of the fence.
RSPCA inspectors said the black and white feline was left ‘severely shaken’ after the incident in Shetcliffe Lane, Bradford, and are now trying to identify the two boys in the clip.
‘The owner 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,’ said inspector Rachel Oprysk.
‘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.’
One of the boys was dressed in dark trousers and a black jacket, the other boy was dressed in a light blue hooded zip-up top with white sleeves.
Anyone with information on the incident should contact the RSPCA Inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
