Kitten thrown off motorway bridge
Kitten thrown off motorway bridge
Vets said the kitten was lucky to be alive
Vets are trying to save the life of a kitten after it was thrown off a motorway bridge in Lancashire.

The kitten plummetted 40ft off the bridge over the M65 and smashed into the windscreen of an oncoming car.

The kitten has had a front leg amputated and vets said it was a miracle he survived the fall at all.

The RSPCA said it was an appalling act of animal cruelty. Lancashire Police have begun an investigation and anyone with information should contact them.
