Horrified residents in Lurgan are in shock after ruthless thugs fired a little kitten against the wall at their home.
The grey kitten, which belonged to neighbours, died a short time later.
A father and son were watching TV in their living room at Levin Road in Kilwilkie when shortly after midnight on Saturday they heard a thud outside.
The 18 year old son and his dad went to investigate and spotted two youths running away and the kitten lying in their garden.
The teenager said they had fired the little kitten hard against the wall and it was badly injured.
His mum said: “It is sickening, disgusting. I think it is just terrible. If they can do that to an animal what could they do to a human being?”
She said the kitten belonged to neighbours who are now distraught.
