Tybee Island Police are trying to find the person who threw a small kitten out of a moving vehicle.
Good Samaritans saw the incident happen on Highway 80 around 2 p.m. on Saturday. Police say the witnesses stopped their vehicle to retrieve the injured cat, and brought him to the Tybee Island Police Department.
"He is skinned up a little bit," said Jamie Webb Schuman.
Schuman is keeping the kitten, until someone adopts him.
"He is lucky to be here. If the couple hadn't turned around, he probably would not have survived," said Schuman.
Schuman said she is shocked that someone would throw an "innocent" kitten from a car window and take off.
"If there comes a time when a person cannot have an animal, and does not want an animal, there are other ways to give an animal a home, instead of doing what these people did," said Schuman.
