Diego Torres Ruiz was arrested by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office after a witness said he threw two kittens out of his moving Hyundai Santa Fe last month.

A Florida man was arrested Thursday after authorities said he threw two kittens from a moving vehicle last month.

Diego Torres Ruiz faces two counts of animal cruelty.

Ruiz is accused of throwing the two kittens out of his car window while he was driving on the U.S. 1 on Nov. 28, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement on Facebook.


Diego Torres RuizĀ is 29 years old.

Charged & Arrested

A motorist, who said he saw the cats fall from a northbound Hyundai Santa Fe near mile marker 87, provided authorities with the vehicle’s license plate number, the sheriff’s office said. The witness said he caused other drivers to swerve to avoid hitting the cats, according to the sheriff’s office statement.

Ruiz was taken into custody shortly after the incident but was released after authorities were unable to find the kittens and he denied knowing about the cats, the sheriff’s office said.

However, later that day, a cat was found dead, apparently after being struck by a vehicle, according to the sheriff’s office.

The second cat ran into the woods and was later found by a Rain Barrel Village employee who took him to Whiskers & Paws in Key Largo, where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The nonprofit organization rescues and cares for the feral cat population in the upper Florida Keys, according to its website.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said the surviving kitten was adopted by the witness, who said the kittens resembled the ones thrown out of the moving vehicle window.

The witness also allegedly identified Ruiz’s vehicle as the suspect vehicle, the sheriff’s office said.

Ruiz is scheduled to be arraigned on January 3. It is not clear if Ruiz has legal representation to comment on his behalf.
