ESSEX, Ont. – Provincial police say they’ve concluded an investigation into allegations that a kitten was thrown from a moving vehicle in Essex, Ont., and found no wrongdoing.
Police say a witness reported seeing a kitten thrown from the driver’s side door of the vehicle as it left a fast food drive-thru on the evening of Sept. 3.
They say the witness took the kitten to a veterinary clinic, but it later died.
A second kitten was found in the area, but it had also died.
Investigators say they interviewed the driver and found that a kitten was not, in fact, thrown from the vehicle.
Instead, they say, kittens seem to have fallen from the vehicle’s undercarriage.
