RSPCA deny West Ham’s claims over role in Kurt Zouma punishment

Posted by

The RSPCA have denied all of West Ham’s claims about their supposed punishment for cat-kicker Kurt Zouma.

A video of Zouma abusing his cat went viral on Tuesday, which resulted in the widespread condemnation of the former Chelsea centre-back.

Still, David Moyes decided to select him on Tuesday night as West Ham hosted Watford. He intended to do so on Sunday, too, before the player fell ‘ill’.

Moyes, and West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady alike, have outlined their supposed punishment of Zouma in wake of the video being released.

They have claimed that his £250k fine will be donated to animal welfare charities, while the player himself will partake in an animal welfare course, supported by the RSPCA.

As is reported by talkSPORT, though, the RSPCA have denied being offered any sort of donation and insist that they have no role to play in any ‘rehabilitation’ of the player.

The claims made by Moyes appear to be a fabricated PR stunt from the club. It remains to be seen if they will later ACTUALLY follow through with their promises.
