Horrific moment BMW driver crushes cat to death in front of owners in Halifax ‘then laughs’

A Halifax couple were left heartbroken after a stranger knocked over their cat and then laughed in their face.

The man, who they say hit their pet on purpose, has shown “no remorse”.

Alicia Robinson, 28, and Robin Newsome, 32, were at home on their quiet residential street when a driver ran over their one-year-old cat yesterday.

Ice, named for his white fur, was rushed to the vet but sadly died of his injuries.

Recalling the aftermath, Robin said, “He got out of the car and thought it was funny. He just destroyed our family.”

Ice cream was a much-loved pet

The man, who was unknown to the couple, did pass on his contact details, but had “a smile on his face, laughter, giggles”, according to Alicia.

Distraught Ice owners, who believe it would have been clearly visible, fear the driver knocked it over on purpose.

Robin said: “It’s cruelty to animals. There’s no way you can’t see a pure white cat.”

He then added: “Every driver should be careful, it could have been a child.”

The couple said they reported the driver to the RSPCA and plan to contact the police. They also sent her the vet bill but had no response. Now they’re asking him to “do what’s decent” and pay so they can cremate their pet and bring his ashes home.

“As a family, we are broken,” Robin said.
