Cat and Dog Fight in the Middle of a Busy Street as People Egg Them On

March 17, 2015 | Prachi Gupta

Gothamist has released a video in which a cat and a dog are fighting in the middle of an active intersection, while bystanders are cheering. The cat, called Heathcliff, maintains a defensive stance and fends off the dog. Neither are on a leash. A woman is seen kicking the cat repeatedly, though it’s not clear from the video whether the cat is hurt. It was not, thankfully, punted into the air. Gothamist has notified the ASPCA of the video, but the organization has not released a comment.
