The RSPCA is appealing for information after a cat was thrown out of a moving car in broad daylight.
A member of the public witnessed the incident at 12.10pm on Wednesday 5 July, in Pooles Lane, in Willenhall, in the West Midlands.
Sadly, the female ginger and white cat – thought to be around 10 years old – was put to sleep by a vet to prevent further suffering.
RSPCA inspector Rob Crutchley, who is investigating the incident, said: “The member of the public was shocked to witness this incident. The cat was literally thrown out of the window of a moving car, and as a result was collapsed on the road.
“She deteriorated at the vets, and sadly was put to sleep.
“Unfortunately we don’t have a registration number or make for the car, however the woman who saw this said it was a small red car.
“The cat wasn’t microchipped or wearing a collar so we don’t know where she came from. We are urging anyone who has any information or who saw the incident to contact us in complete confidence on 0300 123 8018.”
