Brave New York City Cat Survives Brutal Kick, Recovers at ASPCA Animal Hospital

King recovering at the ASPCA Animal Hospital

After a video of a Brooklyn man brutally kicking a cat was posted to Facebook last week, animal advocates alerted authorities, leading to the arrest of the man in the video footage by the New York City Police Department (NYPD).

Representatives of various animal welfare organizations, the Mayor’s Alliance and the NYPD worked together to locate the injured cat, named King, seen in the video. The NYPD transported King to the ASPCA Animal Hospital (AAH) to undergo emergency veterinary care.

King is currently recovering at the ASPCA Animal Hospital and will continue to receive treatment and close monitoring as he heals. It is still too soon to discuss a timeline for King’s adoptability.

This case reinforces the importance of reporting animal cruelty in a timely manner. To report animal cruelty in New York City, please dial 311 or call 911 to report crimes in progress. Please visit our Report Animal Cruelty page to learn how to report cruelty in other areas.

About 200 people should get him in a locked room and kick the crap out of him one at a time! What a sick creep! I hope he never has kids.

I agree with all of you! Would love to inflict some pain on this individual. He needs to be reminded "what goes around comes around" and let's not forget John Lennon's song "instant karma's gonna get you"!
