10 young people have been arrested by police because of suspicion of beating a cat to death. Some residents saw them chasing and beating a cat on a hillside outside Hiu Tsui Court. It was a black and white cat and it was found dead in a drain when officers arrived. The cat’s carcass was sent to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals for examination.
The cases of beating cats have increased over the past years. There is a lack of sense of protecting animals. I think the 10 youngsters behavior is horrible. They don’t have benevolent heart. They don’t have the right to exploit the cat’s life. Although I haven’t a passion for keeping animals, I feel sympathy to animals which are suffered from the maltreatment. I hope that the government can educate youngsters so they have the right attitude towards the animals.
