RSPCA OFFICERS have condemned the person responsible for dumping five kittens in a flood-hit primary school bin near Wolverhampton, Staffordshire and appealed for help in bringing the culprit to justice.
Two drowned as rainwater rose in the bin where they were trapped. Pupils at Idsall Primary School, Shifnal, near Wolverhampton, found them in their playground on Monday June 25th.
RSPCA inspector Jackie Hickman said: ‘These poor kittens have endured such a traumatic experience. They would have struggled to survive as the water level rose higher and higher – and tragically the weaker kittens lost the fight.
‘I am absolutely appalled by what has happened. Anyone tempted to do the same thing should remember that it is against the law to abandon an animal and cause it to suffer.
I would ask people to think of anyone locally who had a litter of kittens or a pregnant cat. These kittens are not feral animals.’
