A FAMILY were horrified after they saw a driver throwing kittens out of a car window as it hurtled down dual carriageway.

Matthew Tyler, 31, said his wife and four-year-old son were hysterical as they witnessed the sickening act on Southmayne in Pitsea at about 5pm on Saturday.

Drivers narrowly avoided crashing as they swerved to avoid the animals thrown from the moving vehicle.

Three of the four kittens died but Mr Tyler managed to save one from the side of the road and took it to the PDSA pet hospital in Vange where it is recovering.

He said: “What I witnessed was absolutely disgusting, my wife and son were in hysterics.

“The people who did this need to be found.”

Earlier in the day another member of the public discovered ten kittens and their mother taped up inside a cardboard box, dumped at the side of the A127 in Crays Hill.

It is not known if the two incidents are linked.

Mr Tyler and his family, who live in Bowers Gifford, left Tesco at Hazelmere, Pitsea at about 5pm on Saturday.

Echo: Recovering - the eight-week-old male kitten with vet Rachel Scott 

Echo:

Rescued: Similar kittens found taped in a box along the A127. It is not known if the two incidents are linked.

He said: “I drove on to the main A13 roundabout where I had to swerve quickly to avoid a kitten.

“I then proceeded on to the A132 where kittens were being chucked from a car every 100 metres or so.

“Sadly three were killed.

“I went back to the roundabout and managed to save one poor little mite that was luckily still alive, and took him to the PDSA.

“They monitored him and gave him pain relief.

“Because I was busy swerving kittens and my wife was in hysterics we didn't manage to get the details of the car the kittens were being thrown from.

“It was a couple of cars in front of us.

Echo:

Echo:

“But I am pleading with anyone that saw this sick act or knows anything to contact the police.”

The PDSA confirmed that the remaining kitten is alive and is recovering with one of the hospital’s vets.

Anyone with information should contact Essex Police on 101.

No such thing as karma. Life is just luck. I always find the nicest people are the most unluckiest. And the horrible people are the luckiest. Although I do agree this is a very disgusting act against innocent animals.

It always amazes me Max that this family never noted down the number plate of the car. According to the report they didn't anyway. No one ever seems to do it nowadays when a crime has took place involving a car.

Why would anyone do such a terrible thing, even if they didn't want them they could have left them in a box outside a vets or a pet shop, to throw them out of a speeding car is just cruel and evil and I sincerely hope that this monster is caught.

The car was two cars in front of them, they were unable to see the numberplate, it does say that in the article.

The driver then went back to the roundabout to rescue the cat that lived.

Oh here we go, pick on me for being a compassionate caring soul why don't you.
Actually, I said I was crying at the sheer wickedness of this world, and yes I do cry at things I see in the paper and on the news, what's wrong with that? at least I have a heart. Don't YOU get upset at inhumane actions then? If you don't, or don't feel moved then you are one callous person.
Also, your silly remark about me having shares in Kleenex is about as funny as the story itself. So to put you straight, I don't give one iota as to whether you think what I said was worthy of tears or not. I just expressed my feelings at that time which was of great sadness.

Maybe if the wife wasn't in hysterics then she would have been able to see and maybe film (we all have cameras nowadays)! Failing that then a hand on the horn continuously would have warned everyone and maybe the driver would have realised that he was being watched and then stopped committing the atrocity. Either way, I personally would have had the wife call the police and followed the driver whilst she was giving a running commentary to the police. Nice easy case for the police to solve without even lifting a finger! Not much common sense needed really....
