Days later, police issued a warrant to search a man’s home in Crestmead.
‘A large number of fireworks and crackers were located, along with drugs and an antique firearm,’ the RSCPA said.
They also discovered duct tape with cat fur matching Charlie’s and a mobile which featured a disturbing video of a person lighting firecrackers to a cat, who is believed to be Charlie.
No other animals were found at the residence.
RSPA Queensland Chief Inspector Daniel Young, said, ‘The investigation is ongoing.
‘Quite frankly, I’m at a loss for words. How anyone could treat an animal like this and then disregard it like rubbish is appalling.
‘This level of offending shows a complete lack of empathy and a very disturbing level of cruelty.’
The RSPCA is urging any who may have received a video depicting the kitten or who has any further information regarding the incident to contact the RSPCA on 1300 ANIMAL.
