The 55-second video showed a man picking up a cat that had climbed on his car windshield, before hurling the poor animal to the ground violently. The incident occured at a parking lot in front of a row of shophouses on Jalan Rejang, Setapak, as reported by the Star.
The police have since questioned a man for animal abuse, after he was caught on security camera.
