No charges have yet been filed against Kurt

The Animal Welfare Bill of 2021 means that animal abusers now face tougher penalties, with the worst offenders facing up to five years in prison. No charges have been filed against Kurt, but the RSPCA is aware of the online footage. A spokesman for the charity said it was a very upsetting video. It is never acceptable to kick, hit or slap an animal, for punishment or otherwise. Dr Maggie Roberts of the charity Cats Protection added that any person seen or suspected of cruelty to an animal, whether it be physical abuse, neglect or any other form of cruelty, should be notified to the RSPCA.

The police work closely with the RSPCA in investigating cases of animal cruelty. Cats are sentimental creatures and experience pain and fear. Beating a cat will only cause her physical and mental suffering. They noticed that some people watching the video online thought it was funny. they can assure them that this is not a joke.


What did the club say?

The PL team condemned the player’s actions in their books, and the Hammers acted quickly after learning of the video. The east London club said in a statement that West Ham United unequivocally condemns the actions of their player Kurt Zouma in a video circulated. They have spoken to Zouma and will be addressing this issue internally, but they would like to make it clear that they do not condone cruelty to animals in any way.

Despite this condemnation, Kurt was included in the club’s starting XI for Tuesday’s PL match against Watford. Speaking about whether Kurt’s social media video this week influenced his decision to release the French defender on Tuesday, the West Ham manager said no because Kurt Zouma is one of their best players, but it certainly continues and the club does that, so that’s a separate issue.
