Three kittens died after they were thrown from the ninth floor of an apartment complex in Malaysia on Tuesday.

According to the Facebook group D’Cat D’Hati, the kittens were caged on the ninth floor of the apartment complex when someone threw the cage down. Neighbors heard a noise and rushed outside only to find the broken cage on the road with the felines.

“Two kittens first came out from the caged door and immediately died. Another one was moaning in pain and struggling but soon died a few minutes later,” the post said, adding that mother cat came rushing to the kittens to check on them.

The page also shared photos that showed mother cat checking on the felines and sitting beside their bodies. According to the post, the owner of the felines was returning home from work when the incident took place and details regarding who threw the kittens was not known. It was also unknown if any case was filed in connection with the incident.

The incident comes less than a month after a cat was found hung to death in Perak, Malaysia. Facebook group Malaysia Animal Association said the feline was strangled to death with a rope and hung from the side of a banner. The association said they were willing to give $250 to anyone who could provide evidence or give any information related to the crime.
