Hunt for the kicker as well as the videographer is still on in Kansas City, Snapchat video released to help identify them


Animal welfare officials in Kansas City, Missouri are furious as a video of a cat being kicked surfaced on the internet.

In a gruesome 30 seconds, a man dressed in purple shorts, black tank top, white socks and black Under Armour cleats kicked a small black cat as if it were a football while the man filming cheered him on.

He was seen yelling "field goal" before his friends erupted in laughter. Authorities suspected at least two more people to be present while this happened, as there were multiple voices heard.

The video shows the cat sailing through the air, across the field for at least 20 yards or more before it landed on the ground.


Spokeswoman Kelli Wachel from Center School District confirmed that the video was shot in the school's football field in the evening, which happened to be after school hours.

The field is usually open to the public after school. She said the district notified Kansas City Police as well as Animal Control authorities as soon as the video reached her.

The city's Neighbourhood & Housing Services Department's spokesman John Baccala revealed that the original video was from Snapchat dated May 22.


Following which the Center High School principal informed him and the local authorities on May 24.

Baccala says they would like to follow this case as best as they can to ensure this never happens again. He describes the video as 'graphic' and 'disturbing.'


Neither the kicker nor the person filming it has been identified yet. The authorities are hoping the release of the video will help people to identify and locate the perpetrators.

They have urged people with any information to come forward and contact them. Anyone with information can contact KC's Action Center on 311 and outside areas on 816-513- 1313.
