A 16-year-old boy is in police custody after a horrific Snapchat video showed him throwing a defenseless kitten across a street. Police in the city of Ontario, California launched an investigation after they were tipped off about the video on Dec. 2.
Police asked the public to identify the illegal immigrant seen throwing the kitten in the Snapchat video. Several tips were called in.
The NY Post reports the boy ran when he saw police approaching him on Monday. He was tackled to the ground and arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty.
The animal suffered a fractured leg and other minor injuries. It is expected to recover.
Animal cruelty is one of the hallmarks of serial killers and other psychopaths.
