Kittens run over after being dumped from a car on Penryn bypass: UPDATE

EDITOR'S NOTE: The CFZ is primarily a research organisation, but we are also involved in activism and animal welfare. Therefore, stories like this, which aren't the least bit Fortean, are included because we think that it is important that such events are highlighted, rather than ignored.

Police have confirmed that two kittens died after they were dumped from a car on Penryn bypass this morning.

PC Barry Nicholas, a wildlife crime specialist said that the passenger dropped them out the window one at a time.
PC Nicholas condemned the men’s actions as “horrific” and reminded pet owners that any unwanted pets can be handed in at a number of rehoming establishments.

A police spokesman said they received a call just after 9am from a driver that saw an arm come out of the window of an old style Golf red VW Golf in front, and drop two items onto the busy road.

She added that the driver who reported the crime stopped once they realised that the items were two kittens, however despite an attempt to rescue the little cats, they were run over and killed by the fast moving traffic.

The car containing two men was driving from Penryn to Falmouth direction at about 9.15am.

Anyone with information should contact PC Barry Nicholas at Falmouth on 101.
