Cat cruelty caught on camera. This was on the TV about 30 minutes ago (November 10th 2011). It is the story of a young man who wantonly and without a care in the world grabs a black cat by his tail, and while walking down the road swings the cat around vigorously. He was stopped eventually. The cat, Mowgli, was understandably traumatized and is reluctant to go out. His female human companion wants the youth caught. We all do. This cruel behavior could have easily resulted in a spinal injury to Mowgli or much worse. Fortunately it seems that the injury is only psychological.

I think it is symptomatic of the disaffected, badly raised youth of the UK today. There are many like him. There are many who have little prospect of employment or living a constructive life. It's a life on benefits for many of these youths. It needs to be said that there are also many good young people.
On conviction of animal cruelty the maximum penalty under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 is a £20,000 fine and/or not more than 51 weeks in prison. The police are looking for the man.
Update 12th Nov. 2011: The person who committed this act, 20-year-old Riain Richards, has handed himself into the police. We shall see what happens.
Finally, I want to make a comment about Steve Allen of the radio station LBC 97.3. This morning he dismissed this act of animal cruelty as something that was not that bad. Steve Allen, you have completely lost me as a listener. In my opinion, you are very wrong to make that comment.
