A woman who brutally kicked and crushed two helpless kittens to death while their distraught mother tried to save them has been arrested after her cruel attack was caught on CCTV in Fatih, a district in the Turkish capital Istanbul.
Shocking footage of the slaughter has provoked outrage among animal lovers who are calling for the suspect to be jailed.
In the sickening five minute clip, she can be seen first stroking the two black kittens as they sleep in the sun before she hurls one of them across a yard.
The film then shows accused 27-year-old Derya Kocak, arrested this week after she was identified by locals, stamping on and kicking the stricken kitten until it has stopped moving.
The kittens' brave mother cat tries to defend her offspring but is repeatedly kicked away by the woman, who then turns on the other young cat.
Neighbour Nurcan Manastirli said: "This one is repeatedly kicked against the wall and then stamped on over and over again until it is obviously dead.
"Once again the mother tries so hard to save her baby but she is kicked and chased away. There is nothing she can do.
"She is clearly in danger herself but she never stops trying," added Nurcan, who has now taken in the mother cat.
"When I brought her back to the street where she lost her babies, she started to search for them everywhere.
"She looked all over the place, under the trees, the cars. She was still hoping to find them alive. It was really sad to watch," she explained.
Police say Kocak has admitted it is her in the CCTV but has "no memory" of the killing spree, and confirmed that Kocak can be linked to other brutal animal deaths in the area.
