Man swings cat by tail: RSPCA statement

RSPCA inspector Penny Baker said: “The 10 year ban handed down by the court shows how seriously they viewed these offences.

“He is very lucky that the cat wasn’t more seriously injured. Daisy was less than a year old at the time and didn’t weigh much. If he had done that when she was older and heavier then he could have caused serious damage to her spine.”
