An investigation has been launched after a man was caught throwing cats against walls in a series of vile Facebook videos.
The unidentified thug was filmed hurling defenceless pets in three different videos.
In the first of the series – which was uploaded to social media – he captures a pet and holds it at arms length to show the camera.
Moments later he is filmed laughing as he throws the helpless cat at a wall, hitting a light shade before the ground.
In another video, understood to have been filmed outside garages off Guiting Road, in Selly Oak, Birmingham, the man lures over a black and white cat.
