This is the moment a young tracksuit-clad thug ‘penalty kicks’ a cute kitten at a wall to impress laughing pals.
According to local media, the incident was filmed by the culprit’s girlfriend in the city of Florencio Varela in the eastern Argentine province of Buenos Aires and shared online by one of the group members.

In the shocking footage, a yob in a baseball cap is seeing crouching down as he eyes an approaching white cat, apparently a little kitten.
He then runs up to the cat as if taking a penalty kick and boots it so far down the alley that it appears to hit a wall at the end.
Meanwhile, the shadows and laughter in the video suggest that the thug is accompanied by a male and female friend.
Reports said that the cat managed to stand up after hitting the wall although there have been no updates on its condition.
The incident sparked outrage online, with netizen ‘ALMaM’ saying: “Human stupidity has no limits. The worst thing for me is that there are people applauding him.”
‘Stubbornbeast’ added: “People who are cruel to animals are usually also cruel to vulnerable people, such as kids, women and OAPs. He should be punished and jailed.”
It is unclear if police are investigating and whether the unnamed yob has been arrested.
