A British man turned himself into authorities on Friday after a closed-circuit security camera caught him swinging a cat by its tail, causing world-wide outrage as the video went viral.

Police in Ramsgate say that the man, who was not identified, threw the 2-year-old cat around by its tail a dozen times before neighbors stepped in to stop him.

The cat survived and is now back home, but the cat’s owners say that it has been traumatized by the attack.

“He won’t go out the front, because that’s where the actual incident happened. That’s what I believe. He’ll get to the door and he’ll look up and then he’ll back away again,” said the owners, who were not identified.

Police are now questioning the suspect about the incident.
