Man filmed kicking a kitten into sea faces 10 years in prison

A man has been arrested after allegedly kicking a kitten into the sea at a Greek restaurant.

If charged and convicted of animal abuse, the man faces a sentence of up to 10 years in prison and a maximum €50,000 ($52,649) fine. Footage of the shocking incident shows three people dining outdoors at the seaside restaurant on the island of Evia.

Locals reportedly took the kitten to a vet for examination and it was thankfully unharmed.

The video sparked outrage on social media in Greece, leading to the arrest of the man. Greece’s police minister even hit out at the diner, saying violence against animals is unacceptable.

Minister Takis Theodorikakos said on Facebook:

A while ago a person was arrested by the Greek Police who kicked and flew a kitten into the sea. Violence against animals is unacceptable.

The government has passed a strict law on protecting animals from abuse which is now in effect, but in every case this is a matter of humanity and culture.

I am deeply saddened for those who abuse animals and for those who tolerate it.

I heartily salute those who pointed out the issue. The reason now belongs to Greek justice.
