Causing uproar is a video showing a Texas teenage girl attempting to flush a helpless kitten down the toilet.
The video believed to have been recorded on a cell phone shows the girl holding down the toilet lid as the desperate cat tries to make its way out. After nearly making its way out the teen once again pushes the desperate cat back down the toilet bowl.
At one point the teen whose face is never seen flushes the toilet while the kitten cries in terror.
The video first made its way on twitter (who or why? ) before it was taken down Tuesday morning. To date notified authorities believe the teen may be from Houston, Texas but as of yet the involved individual(s) have not been identified or brought to account.
The video gained traction after a sickened viewer sent it to Channel 2 Houston News in the hope that the teen girl and the person filming the act of animal cruelty may be brought to account.
Authorities are believed to have sought the identity of the initial twitter account that hosted the video. No arrests have yet been made.
