Cat Violently Kicked Into Street Deserves Justice

Target: Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, United Kingdom

Goal: Ensure stricter penalties for animal abuse.

In a harrowing event in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, Terry Bree, aged 71, allegedly committed an appalling act of violence against a defenseless animal. Captured via doorbell camera, this disturbing footage reportedly depicts Bree mercilessly kicking Lenny, a 21-year-old cat, into a busy street. Following this allegedly brutal act, Lenny’s health deteriorated, leading to his untimely death three weeks later.

The video, circulated widely on social media, sparked public outrage and led to Bree’s arrest. In court, Bree reportedly conceded guilt of causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal. Despite the gravity of his apparent actions, Bree received a sentence of 300 hours of community work, a punishment that many deem grossly inadequate for the severity of the crime.

This incident raises serious concerns about the adequacy of current legal provisions in dealing with cases of animal cruelty. It highlights an urgent need for reviewing and potentially enhancing the penalties for such acts. Ensure they appropriately reflect the seriousness of the offense and serve as a deterrent to future cruelty.


Dear Mayor Andy Street,

This letter serves as an urgent plea from concerned individuals regarding the recent animal cruelty case in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. The actions of Terry Bree, who brutally assaulted and allegedly contributed to the death of a 21-year-old cat named Lenny, have brought to light a significant issue within our legal system concerning the punishment of animal cruelty offenses.

We urge you, as the Mayor of the West Midlands, to advocate for a comprehensive review of this case and the broader legal response to animal cruelty. It is paramount that the legal consequences for such barbaric acts are revisited and strengthened. The current punishment of 300 hours of community work does not seem to adequately reflect the gravity of Bree’s actions nor does it send a strong enough message against animal cruelty.

We call for your leadership in initiating a dialogue about increasing the severity of penalties for animal cruelty offenses. Our legal system should offer more than just nominal punishment; it should reflect our society’s values and commitment to protecting all beings from needless harm and suffering.

A robust legal response not only serves justice, but also demonstrates a commitment to the welfare of animals and the maintenance of a compassionate society. We trust that you will give this matter the serious consideration it deserves and take action towards implementing stricter penalties for animal cruelty.
