London police aware of graphic video involving cat



Article content

London police say they’re aware of videos circulating online that appear to show a cat being tortured, but can’t release any further information because the case involves a minor.

Two videos that appeared to show a female abusing a cat – throwing it across a room and out a window – before the animal dies were first posted on multiple London-based community groups Facebook Sunday.

The videos have since been deleted on the Facebook pages, but users say portions of the videos and screengrabs are still circulating on SnapChat, the video- and photo-sharing mobile app.

“We are aware of the videos and social media posts circulating online,” London police spokesperson Const. Sandasha Bough wrote in a statement Monday, declining to say whether anyone has been arrested or charged.

“Under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, there is nothing additional that we are able to share in relation to this matter,” she said.

The now-deleted videos sparked outrage online, where users demanded police take action.

“The videos are graphic and horrific. I wish I could unsee what I saw,” one Facebook user wrote
