A teenager who was filmed slapping a cat while his friends laughed has been arrested.
Video footage emerged on Twitter of a young man slapping a poor cat who was sitting on a wall, and is believed to have been filmed in Portsmouth.
It shows the 15-year-old approach the ginger cat, who leans in assuming he is going to be stroked, before the boy cruelly punches him in the face, prompting the cat to jump off the wall.
In the background, you can hear the teen’s friends laughing, and the clip was later posted to Snapchat with the caption ‘Geezer’.
The three-second clip prompted outrage from animal lovers when it was shared to Twitter, and the teen from the video has now been arrested by Hampshire Police under the Animal Welfare Act of 2006.
