A small kitten was subjected to an act of sickening cruelty by a gang of thugs in the early hours of this morning (Sunday, August 28)

The incident happened in the Ulster Street area of Lurgan at around 12.30am when a gang of young drinkers attacked the cat.

A witness shared on Facebook: "I'm near sick here, I was lying in bed and heard alot of noise, I looked out the window and saw about six young fellas drunk and one of them was swinging what I thought was a bottle then he threw it as hard as he could but when I looked again it was a tiny black kitten.

"The wee thing just sat there and I banged and banged the window and all but one moved off.

"I threw my house coat on and went outside and he ran off. I've been up and down Ulster Street but can't find the kitten. I'm really worried sick, I wish people would keep kittens in, there's awful bad people out there. God only knows have they caught it again or where they found it."
