A European soccer star has now been sentenced to community service for allegedly attacking his own cats.

As The Daily Caller reports:

West Ham’s star soccer player Kurt Zouma was sentenced to community service Wednesday for attacking his cats.

Zouma pleaded guilty after he was caught kicking and slapping his pets back in February, TMZ reported. He faced jail time for the incident, but instead received 180 hours of community service and a five-year ban from owning any cats, the outlet continued.

Zouma’s brother, Yoan, also pleaded guilty to a charge that he aided and abetted Zouma during the attack, TMZ continued. He was sentenced to 140 hours community service and a ban from cat ownership.

Both brothers were also ordered to pay fines. The judge called their actions “disgraceful and reprehensible” during the sentencing hearing, the outlet reported.

Both of Zouma’s cats were removed from his care after footage of the attack surfaced.

You are sentenced for abusing cats but can kill all the unborn children you want. Something is really out of whack here.
