Police in Malaysia have arrested two men accused of putting a pregnant cat in a dryer and killing it.
Surveillance camera video footage shows the men in their extreme cruel act of animal abuse at a public laundromat.
The men put the cat in the dryer and then leave the salon briefly. When they return, they start the dryer using coins — and let the machine do the dirty work for them.

This is no doubt a particularly cruel case of animal cruelty, and for the poor cat, unfortunately, all help came too late.
Thankfully, the police’s willingness to to intervene and apprehend the suspects is a glimmer of hope on the horizon: Animal cruelty is often recognized as a trivial offence. Share this post if you demand fair punishment for animal tormentors.
