Kitten thrown from van – did you see?

Kitten thrown from van – did you see?

The RSPCA is seeking the public’s assistance to identify the person who threw a kitten out of a moving vehicle.

Yesterday (Monday 29 December 2014) at about 3.20pm a small white van with no rear windows, was travelling south on Marmion Avenue, Quinns Rocks.

Just before the roundabout at Hester Avenue, the passenger was seen throwing a black and white kitten out of the window.

The kitten rolled onto the road after bouncing off the van.

The person in the vehicle following the van stopped and picked up the kitten and took her to the vet.

RSPCA WA Deputy Chief Inspector Sharon Morgan said as a result of being thrown from the vehicle part of the kitten’s left rear leg was ripped off which may result in the leg being amputated. The kitten also suffered trauma to her face and her front right leg is currently paralysed.

”The RSPCA would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident and may have the number plate or a description of the van.

“For the RSPCA to investigate we need more details and we are hoping a member of the public may be able to assist us.

“This type of behaviour is outrageous and we’re seeking assistance from the public to provide information regarding this incident,” Inspector Morgan said.

Anyone with information is asked to contacted the RSPCA WA on 1300 Cruelty (1300 278 3589).
