Woman filmed drop-kicking kitten like ball
A woman was filmed drop-kicking a kitten like a football, before she sent the footage to friends. Nicola Collinson, 21, targeted the young black and white cat after it wandered up to her in the street. In the video, she is seen to pick up the kitten, throw it in the air and drop-kick it twice.
Collinson sent the clip by mobile phone to several of her friends. She was charged with causing unnecessary suffering to an animal after a shocked recipient forwarded it to the RSPCA. Collinson, of Parkside Avenue, Winlaton, Gateshead, pleaded guilty to the offence at Gosforth Magistrates' Court yesterday.
