Police have confirmed that three teenagers have been arrested after video footage of attacks on two cats went viral.
The three alleged culprits were arrested when reports of animal cruelty at a property on Westminster Avenue in Bootle, Liverpool, were made.
The attacks are said to have taken place on Sunday (March 5) and show two boys aged 13 and one 16-year-old girl attacking the defenceless animals, according to the Liverpool Echo.
The graphic videos show the trio chasing the cats as they attempt to flee from windows and doors, while also trying to hide under furniture in the home.
Shockingly, the cats are then seen being thrown, stormed on, kicked and having their tails pulled.
They are also seen being hit with various objects.
One cat was in a critical condition, but is now reported to be stable.
A spokesman for Merseyside Police said: “Three teenagers have been arrested following a report of animal cruelty. Just after 8.30pm last night officers received a report of animal cruelty at an address on Westminster Avenue that took place on Sunday, March 5.
“Two boys aged 13 and one girl aged 16 from Liverpool have been arrested on suspicion of cruelty to animal offences.
“They have been taken to a police station in Merseyside where they remain in custody.
“An investigation is underway in the area. Anyone with information should contact us @MerPolCC or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 with reference 23000194073.”
No details about the group have been released by officials, other than ages.
