Surly cat being ejected from train - videoSurly cat being ejected from train
A video has emerged of a cat being tossed from a train between Manchester Victoria and Old Trafford.
The camera operator caught the startling incident on Sunday morning.
After the cat was ejected, the train moved on.
The cat was likely travelling with its owners - a woman and her mother - who have been left in a panic.
"You never expect this to happen to a cat. I had no idea. I'm absolutely speechless.
"We'll be bringing the cat to a place where it's looked after. It's safe and will be given some food and drink."
Manchester's RSPCA are currently involved in the rescue.
The cat is believed to have been travelling with a woman and her mother.
It is the first time in several years a person has been seen inside a train carriage travelling on the same line as the footage was taken.
Manchester Victoria Station closed while police and RSPCA worked to catch the cat and return it to its owner.
A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police said: "We are investigating a passenger on a train that was travelling from Manchester Victoria station to Manchester city centre.
"As a result of this police and RSPCA officers have responded to the train and a cat has been recovered from the train.
"This is currently in the hands of officers investigating the matter."
Anyone who saw a train going from Manchester Victoria to Old Trafford around the time of the incident is asked to call 101.
