#TheList Haider Sajed Kadem Abed (DoB 25/07/1992) of 107 St Denis Road, Selly Oak, Birmingham B29 4JU – abused cats for Facebook videos
Abed pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to the cats, contrary to Section 4 of the Animal Welfare Act, and was convicted by Birmingham Magistrates Court, on Friday 6/7/18.
The videos, which were taken between August 2016 and August 2017, show Abed laughing menacingly as he throws three cats in the air.
In each of the sick videos, Abed can be seen enticing the cats towards him in order to pet them. But once he gains their trust, he grabs the defenceless creatures and throws them into the air.
In one video, one of the cats can be heard crying out after she is flung into the air, hits a lampshade and lands on the floor.
RSPCA inspector Herchy Boal, who investigated the case, said: “This was a disgusting abuse of trust. Abed can be seen enticing the defenceless pets and then he abuses them and for some reason he derives some kind of pleasure from this.
“These are people’s pets and as we have not traced cats in the vifilwe don’t know how they have been affected, if they have been traumatised by his actions or indeed if they were injured”.
We understand that Abed’s former employer, Edmundson Electrical Ltd, fired him having been made aware of his sadistic animal cruelty. This is a credit to them.
We also gather that Abed has had to move back in with his parents. Aaw shame.
Sentence: 12-month community order comprising 250 hours of unpaid work. 25-day Rehabilitation Activity Requirement. Ordered to pay £616 costs and an £85 victim surcharge. Banned from keeping animals for life.
