Two girls who filmed themselves throwing a kitten across a room have been found guilty of cruelty to the animal at a youth court in Maidstone.
The 15 and 16 year olds from the Isle of Sheppey laughed as they tossed the terrified animal between them, and then posted the video on Facebook.
They were fined £85 each. You may find some of the pictures upsetting. Sarah Saunders reports and speaks to Ch Insp Steve Dockery from the RSPCA.
