Cats must be equipped with window nets, and turtles should also be considered. Two incidents of animals flying and falling into the street were seriously injured and died in Hong Kong yesterday. Among them, a high-altitude flying turtle occurred in Wan Chai, and an eighty-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of cruelty to animals.

The police received a report at 8:09 a.m. yesterday that two Brazilian tortoises had fallen from a height and landed on the road and pavement opposite No. 353 Hennessy Road, Causeway Bay. According to on-site news, someone heard a snapping sound, and then found two Brazilian tortoises about 3 inches long falling on the sidewalk and the road respectively. He was crushed to death on the spot.

Staff from the Society for the Protection of Animals arrived at the scene and seized another Brazilian tortoise, which later died of its injuries. The police went upstairs to search for the owner, seized some evidence, including the turtle cage, and arrested an 80-year-old man in a unit on suspicion of cruelty to animals. It is known that he is the owner of the Brazilian tortoise. Someone claimed that two Brazilian tortoises were placed in a plastic box by the window. It is not known how the tortoises climbed out of the plastic box and fell to the street.

In addition, at 7:00 am yesterday, a tabby cat was suspected to have fallen to its death in Jianxin Building, 3 Castle Peak Road, Sham Shui Po. A resident of Shangji Building found a cat wandering around the canopy on the 9th floor, worried about danger, so he called the police for help. However, after the firefighters arrived at the scene, no trace of the cat was found. When the group left, they found a cat lying on the ground outside the entrance of an underground restaurant, dying. Bloodstains were also found nearby. It is estimated that the cat fell from a height. Personnel from the Patriotic Association came to the scene and confirmed that the cat was dead. It is understood that the tabby cat is about 4 years old, male, with gray and white tiger stripes, and is trying to contact the cat owner.
