Moments later he laughs as he throws the cat at a wall, hitting a light shade as it falls to the ground,

In another video, understood to have been filmed outside garages off Guiting Road, in Selly Oak, Birmingham, the man lures over a black and white cat.

This time filmed by another man, the man bends down to stroke the animal. before he can be heard saying “Smash it to the wall, smash it.”

The man then picks up the pet and, again, throws it at the wall of a garage. The shocked animal runs away - hiding beside a nearby car.

In the final clip, thought to have been filmed around nearby St Denis Road, the man pauses to stroke another cat.

This time, the man filming says: “Go on, fling to the air bro.”

The man bends down to stroke a cat - which he then threw at the wall of a garage off Guiting Road, Selly Oak.

He cat is thrown around ten feet into the air and the terrified animal limps away, as the men walk on laughing.
