Heartless scumbags deliberately broke kitten’s legs and threw it into rubbish
A defenceless young kitten has been left fighting for its life after RSPCA inspectors found it dumped among household rubbish with its legs deliberately broken.
The shocking find was made outside flats in Sheffield and comes as the RSPCA found there was a 23% increase in animal abuse in 2022 compared to the previous years in Yorkshire.
It is thought the limbs of the four-month-old kitten named Forest were deliberately broken before he was dumped and left to die in the rubbish pile.

RSPCA inspector Ben Cottle-Shaw said: “There’s no evidence to suggest Forest had been involved in a road traffic accident, no scuff marks, scabs or damaged claws which you would normally expect to see.
“So it leads us to believe the injuries to his legs have been deliberately inflicted.
“He’s then been wrapped in a piece of carpet and literally thrown out with the rubbish.”
Once found Forest was then taken to nearby Peak Vets where both of his front legs were found to be broken.
Forest has since been transferred to the RSPCA’s Great Manchester Animal Hospital in Salford where he’s undergone successful surgery.
Inspector Cottle-Shaw added: “It’s going to be a long, slow recovery for him but his prognosis is good and he’s receiving excellent care from the fantastic team at Greater Manchester Animal Hospital.

“It was extremely fortunate that he was found and our thanks go to the very kind member of the public who came to his aid, and to Peak Vets for their ongoing support.
“It’s an absolutely shocking story and we’re appealing to anyone who recognises Forest or has information about what has happened to him to come forward.”
Anyone with information about Forest is urged to contact the RSPCA’s appeal line on 0300 123 8018, quoting reference number 01099410.
