According to eye witnesses, the owner, Walter Dahringer, a German national, enticed the cat by offering it food, before snatching it up and throwing it in a blue plastic carrier bag. He then repeatedly beat the bag on the stone pavement, ignoring the screams of agony of the cat inside. When the cat was finally dead he simply tossed the bag inside a rubbish bin near his restaurant.
