Gatineau police are not planning to lay charges against the individual who posted on Facebook a picture that suggested abusive actions towards a cat. Police say after an investigation the image was a ‘joke’. The image showed a cat being held by its back legs by a youth while another person prepares to kick the animal. The cat was found to be in good health.
