THE RSPCA is appealing for information after a cat was allegedly seen swung by his legs and stamped on.

The RSPCA was contacted by a concerned member of the public after a family member heard a cat screaming and saw a man swinging a cat by his legs and stamping on him at the common off Walden Grange Close, Newport on 29 March. The man was apparently with two teenagers.

The caller later went to look for the cat after hearing what had happened and found the cat dead.

Cat found Newport 1RSPCA acting chief inspector Emma Smith said: “According to the account we have received this poor cat suffered a horrific ordeal.

“The cat had extreme injuries which may be linked to a dog attack so it could be that the cat was already in this condition when found by these people.

“Alternatively, they may be responsible for the injuries.

“Unfortunately we have very limited description of the men and no CCTV so we don’t know what happened. The males have been described as being two teenagers and one possibly in his late 30s.”

The RSPCA is appealing for information following this alleged incident.

“The cat, an unneutered male, was not chipped or wearing a collar so we can’t identify the owner,” added ACI Smith.

“We are appealing for the owner of the cat as he probably is being missed by someone.”

Anyone who may have information about this incident should contact ACI Smith through the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
