People in Shanghai have been reporting cats and kittens being thrown in the highway out of moving cars. Since last April, around 30 dead kittens have been found.
Local media reported several incidents where drivers were forced to suddenly stop the car after a number of cats started appearing in the road as if from nowhere. Some drivers saw the cats being thrown out of moving vehicles.
Rescuers have been driving through the highway at night in the search of surviving animals. The few they could find alive presented cuts, severed claws and other injuries.
The rescue volunteer team is urging authorities to find those responsible but believe they will not be punished due to lack of legal precedence.
A petition is being created to ask the government to install CCTV to find the culprits and to reduce accidents.
