Kurt Zouma sanctioned and fined for kicking a cat
Former Chelsea player and West Ham player Kurt Zouma have pleaded guilty to the case he was accused of.
Kurt Zouma, a midfielder for West Ham United in London, was sentenced to 180 hours of community service on Wednesday after striking and kicking his cat. Zouma, 27, pleaded guilty to two offenses of the Animal Welfare Act at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in central London earlier this month.

Kurt Zouma’s brother was also held accountable
Yoan, the football player’s brother, who plays for the Dagenham and Redbridge team, will also have to complete a 140-hour community service sentence.
At today’s sentencing, Judge Susan Holdham remarked, “You both engaged in this terrible and reprehensible deed with this cat.” The judge observed that the two brothers “did not pay heed to the cat’s requirements” and that “young people desire to imitate them.”
On February 6, Yoan, 24, recorded a case of animal mistreatment at his older brother’s residence and shared it on Snapchat with “laughing” symbols. A woman who corresponded with Ioan saw the video and alerted authorities.
