An appeal has been launched to find a man that was seen throwing a cat several feet into the air by its tail.

It happened just after 5pm on 29 August in Baker Avenue in Stratford-upon-Avon.

CCTV shows the man leaning down to pet the cat and then grabbing and throwing it around ten feet into the air before the cat hits the pavement.

People who also witnessed the attack alerted the RSPCA, who are now investigating.
