A 16-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of animal abuse after a video was posted on social media showing a kitten being thrown into the street.

Police in California are searching for a teenage boy captured on social media throwing a kitten across a street.

The feline would then be able to be seen hitting the ground, unmistakably in torment. Spots is recovering at an emergency veterinary clinic, she said, suffering from a broken leg and internal injuries. The boy is believed to be 16 years old.

The graphic video, which lasts less than 10 seconds, was posted to Snapchat, the Ontario (Ca.) Police Department said in a statement. He has yet to be located.

"He hangs around here in the alley all the time", Oscar Ramos told CBSLA. He probably did it just to look cool on video'.

Police were notified early Saturday morning of a video depicting a male intentionally throwing a cat into the street.

A feline named Spots was recuperating in an Inland Empire creature healing facility on Sunday after a realistic video of the feline being tossed was presented on the web throughout the end of the week. Spots will be staying at the animal hospital so that vets can monitor her progress. Outraged Twitter users shared the video to try and find the person responsible.

"I simply need him to know he hurt a casualty that can't shield itself", she said.
