Kittens run over after being dumped on Penryn bypass

Comments (6)

Two kittens were killed after being dumped on Penryn bypass and struck by other vehicles this morning.

Police are investigating reports that someone dumped the young cats out of a moving car.

Someone reported spotting an arm come out of the passenger window of a red VW Golf on the bypass at about 9.15am and drop two objects.

A police spokesman said: "The witness stopped when he realised it was in fact two kittens and tried to catch them, but was unable to and they were run over by the fast moving traffic".

PC Barry Nicholas said: "It is a pretty horrific thing to do. There are plenty of places that re-home animals."

It is believed one kitten was black and white and the other a tortoiseshell.

Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have got a registration of the vehicle.

Anyone who may know the person responsible or has any information is asked to contact Falmouth Police on 101.

    there's are no words that come close to describing that sort of person. there are many place's out there where you can pass unwanted pets, and cats are the easiest to look after, I agree with what everyone he has said, they could of even put a advert in there local shop, or even in there own home window, makes no sense what so ever, I like the Idea of locking them up, that is locking them up in a lions den with hurry lions, I hope they rot in h***.

    I cannot believe the callous inhumane actions of people that had to think about this act of needless and wanton cruelty, had to put those cats in that car, travel at speed and dump then out...or was it really intentional and did they take some pleasure in the act? These murdering individuals need to be found as they cannot be trusted with vulnerable creatures...man or beast.

    Locking up is also not the punishment he deserves, thats too soft a punishment, perhaps a similar punishment of sheer terror, which is what he inflicted on those poor kittens, would be more fitting. This was an act of extreme needless cruelty. I am sure Josdave is right though, he will only get slapped wrists, if that. It only takes a phone call to cats protection or RSPCA and they would have been taken off his hands painlessly, but no he couldn't be bothered and preferred to sacrifice their lives and cause them needless terror.

    Cats are not my favourite species but the actions of this person are callous in the extreme and the sooner he is caught and locked away the better. A slap on the wrist is no punishment but is probably what he will get.
