Shocking video of a cat being brutally kicked has gone viral on social media prompting the authorities to search for the man behind the heinous act.
The horrific video shows a UK man luring a ginger cat over to him. As soon as the animal responds to his ‘friendly’ gesture, he draws his leg back and kicked it as hard as he could, sending it flying through the air. The man is seen laughing hysterically after carrying out the inhumane attack.
The video was shared by the Protect All Wildlife Twitter account:

This is not the first time a helpless animal has been thrashed brutally for fun. A few months ago, a UK teen filmed a video of him laughing maniacally as he tossed a dog off a cliff into the water below.
