KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A 19-yearold man has been charged with kick­ing a cat like a ball on a Kansas City high school foot­ball field in an act of ap­par­ent cru­elty that was cap­tured on video and posted to Snapchat. Johnathan Tay­lor, of Kansas City, was charged Thurs­day with mis­de­meanour an­i­mal abuse. Court records say the prin­ci­pal of Cen­ter High School told an an­i­mal con­trol of­fi­cer about the video and said she be­lieved the per­son seen kick­ing the cat was Tay­lor, a former stu­dent. A cat was found dead at the school. Po­lice say the per­son who recorded the May 22 video also iden­ti­fied Tay­lor as the man kick­ing the cat in the video. A voice can be heard on the recording yelling “field goal!”
