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.

I think we will need a bus so we can ALL fit together & give the creep a visit! I understand Mommy bailed him out??


oh, a bus won't BEGIN to hold us all. What kind of twisted soul does that? I hope that what ever goes around comes around
comes back to him really REALLY soon and causes equal misery. What a bottom dweller!!


so mommy bailed him out??? What kind of a mother does this CREEP have that would allow a son of her's to be brought up with hatred like his?Sounds like she must have a heart of stone and NO feelings for a defenseless animal. Probably made light of the whole thing or said he should have been smarter and not been caught. I hope and prey that the judge who sits on this case has the BALLS to do right by King.


Let me at that coward of a so called person. I love my baby girl. I adopted her 9 years ago. I dare anyone to harm her. She is my best friend and companion.


count me in . I would tar & feather the idiot as I am an animal lover and hate to see animals abused as I have two pets ( dog & cat ) adopted thru animal shelters and it makes me see red when I hear about animal abuse.


Count me in too about the tar and feather that idiot....we adopted our cat, Gracey, from Animal Humane Society 5 years ago and we had a rough first year because we did not know how her first home was we love her so much and can't even think of hurting or having anyone hurting her. Plus, that idiot mom who bailed him out of jail she must have a heart of stone to accept any type of animal abuse.

We too had a kitty who lived for 19 yrs, Her name was "Misty Kitty". She was getting so old that she could not take care of herself. We had to put her down. Broke my heart. (still does). Punks who kick cats deserves more than jail time!


I would rip this guys balls off. And I know how- I am a urologist!


I am with you!! Castrate the no-good jerk!!!


Hey doc - what makes u think the scumbag has any balls to begin with? Hope he does jail time.
