Heartbreaking news from Charlotte, North Carolina. Animal rights activists were demonstrating in uptown Charlotte when the unthinkable happened:
“A guy stopped and threw a kitten out into the street in front of us,” he said.

“When the kitten impacted the street, its leg broke, it panicked, it ran in like a semicircle and was in obvious extreme pain.”

“We immediately ran out and scooped the cat up, and we brought him back up here to this corner. We basically tried to comfort him the best we could,” he said.

The kitten was 6-8 weeks old and broke its leg as it landed.

And while event organizers tried to help it, the kitten died about 10 minutes later.

Police are looking for the car pictured above. Video from Charlotte's WSOCTV.com can be found here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
