Kurt Zouma’s two cats have been taken away by the RSPCA after the West Ham defender was caught on camera kicking and hitting animal.
Kurt Zouma, the West ham footballer’s two cats have been seized by the RSCPA while an investigation into viral footage of him kicking one of them is investigated. The RSPCA has taken West Ham defender Kurt Zouma’s pet cats away after videos of him kicking and smacking one of them surfaced on social media. The incident is being investigated by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, which is in contact with Essex Police.
The Premier League team has fined Zouma “the greatest sum possible,” with the proceeds going to animal welfare organizations. In addition, the 27-year-contract old’s with Adidas has come to an end.
“We have concluded our investigation and can confirm Kurt Zouma is no longer an Adidas-contracted athlete,” said the company.
“The two cats are now in the care of the RSPCA,” a representative for the organization stated.
More than 150,000 people have signed an online petition demanding that Zouma be charged, and Vitality, one of West Ham’s sponsors, has halted its partnership with the team. Zouma “willingly cooperated with the procedures taken in the opening part of the process, including handing his family’s two cats to the RSPCA for examination,” according to West Ham.
“Our priority is and has always been the welfare of these cats,” the RSPCA spokeswoman continued.” They’ve been transported to the vet for a check-up and will stay in our custody while the investigation is ongoing.” We appreciate everyone who voiced concern about these kitties. We were working on this problem before the video became viral, and we’re now in charge of the inquiry.
“We’re still looking into it, so we can’t say anything more at this moment.” The Hammers said the fine was “apart from the RSPCA’s inquiry and pending further discipline once the conclusion of that procedure is established,” which Zouma instantly accepted. “Kurt is incredibly regretful and, like everyone at the club, completely understands the depth of feeling around the incident and the necessity for action to be done,” the statement continued.
“West Ham United would like to underline our criticism of Kurt’s behavior and make it clear that the situation is still being treated seriously.” “However, we believe it is now critical to enable the RSPCA to carry out its inquiry in a fair and comprehensive manner, and we will make no further comment at this time.”
