A Muslim man in Marseille faces charges of animal abuse after a video appeared on YouTube in which he is allegedly filmed throwing a cat against a building. The alarm was raised after thousands of viewers demanded his arrest in an online petition.
SIGN THE PETITION to put this Muslim bastard away for a long time (If you are in the U.S., use ‘Etats-Unis’ as your location in the list of countries)
The Local (h/t Alain) In the video, which has now been removed from YouTube (BNI found a copy below), a young man is filmed throwing a cat at arm’s length against a block of flats. Meowing, the cat is then seen falling four or five metres away.
FYI: The city of Marseilles’ Muslim population is estimated to be as high as 40% and it is considered the most dangerous city in Europe.
Since the video was posted on the popular video-sharing website, outraged comments have spread across the internet, BFMTV reported. On Thursday a petition signed by some 40,000 outraged animal lovers was sent to France’s justice minister Christiane Taubira and interior minister Manuel Valls, calling for the man’s arrest.
In the petition, the ministers are urged to “establish a radical law against barbarity to animals, and to severely punish those who torture innocent animals”. The Brigitte Bardot Foundation, an animal rights foundation founded by the former actress and singer, confirmed that legal proceedings are in progress.
On Friday morning a 24-year-old man was questioned by police in Marseille and is now being held in custody, according to BFMTV. If found guilty, the man risks up to two years in prison and a €30,000 fine, 20-Minutes reported.
The cat has not yet been found.
