The graphic video originally was posted on Snapchat but has been shared thousands of times on Twitter by angry viewers. His name is being withheld from the public due to his age.

"The kitten survived the incident, but did suffer an injured leg", the agency said in a press release.

Earlier on Twitter, the Ontario police department had announced that the cat had a fractured leg, "but is going to be ok". "I just want him to know he hurt a victim that can't defend itself", she said.

COPS are investigating after a disturbing video appeared on social media showing a teen flinging a cat into the street.

But outrage over the incident hasn't been restricted to California.

Spots is expected to recover from his injury. "The Inland Valley Humane Society is assisting with the investigating and care of the injured animal".

One resident says he knows the suspect and believes drugs may be involved.

"I know who he is but I don't know his name", neighbor Oscar Ramos told CBSLA.

The cat is named Spots, its owner tells NBC Los Angeles. They think they're cool.
