Sau Mau Ping cat abusers jailed for 16 months
(01-02 14:04)

A court in Kwun Tong sentenced two men to 16 months in jail each for abusing a cat. It is believed to be the heaviest punishment imposed so far in Hong Kong for animal cruelty.
Sentencing of a third person, who was convicted of the same charge, has been postponed pending reports.
The three were arrested following public outrage at the brutal abuse of the cat on a public housing estate in Sau Mau Ping.
The cat was later put down. –RTHK
