A Queens girl has been arrested after she allegedly threw a kitten in front of a car, killing it.

The girl is accused of tossing the gray tabby into oncoming traffic at the corner of 102nd Street and 101st Avenue in Ozone Park on September 11, according to American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) spokesperson Bret Hopman.

ASPCA officers arrested the girl on Thursday and charged her with aggravated cruelty to animals. Hopman said the case has been referred to Family Court.

The ASPCA found out about the incident after a witness called its Humane Law Enforcement Department.

“The callousness demonstrated in this case is certainly disturbing. We can only hope that this young lady takes responsibility for her actions and understands that cruelty to animals will not be tolerated in our society,” said Stacy Wolf, senior vice president of the ASPCA’s Anti-Cruelty Group.

According to the New York Daily News, the girl, a 12-year-old from Queens, did not own the pet, and took the three-month cat named Little Man from a couple who said they didn’t know her.
