Donegal Pet Rescue has received reports that a kitten was thrown from a moving car near Crolly suffering serious injuries.
A farmer, who was out feeding his herd of cattle in the area, heard a screech of brakes. He rushed over and saw a kitten screaming in agony.
It is thought the kitten has at least two broken legs.
Donegal Pet Rescue says the kitten must have been thrown from the car like a piece of rubbish describing it as a despicable act.
