According to RCMP, a witness reported seeing a man in a newer model white pickup truck driving southbound on Highway 4 near the intersection with Highway 845, roughly 10 kilometres southeast of Lethbridge, at approximately 5:00 p.m.

The driver allegedly opened the window of the truck and tossed a black kitten out of the cab. The kitten was struck by a second southbound vehicle that was travelling alongside the truck.
