The hunt is on to find the heartless people responsible for throwing two kittens to their deaths from a moving car on a busy highway.
A photo was snapped of the vehicle from which the two felines were believed to be thrown from, on a motorway near Wayne in New Jersey, US.
The kittens were reportedly found dead, run over by several vehicles, according to local news site NJ.com.
Animal control officer Frank Rizzo described the animals as “domestic short-hairs, standard household cats.”
The Passaic County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) is looking to find the cruel people responsible for throwing the kittens in the area of Routes 23 and 46 on Saturday.

“This is our number one priority right now,” Mr Rizzo said.
“We have some leads and we are pursuing this case.”
The picture of the SUV driving under highway signs was taken by an unnamed witness travelling behind it, and shared to Facebook with the caption: “This car was throwing kittens out their window on 46. Please share.”
