On Thursday, July 15, the Animal Welfare Society of SA alerted the public to cats and kittens being viciously murdered in Manenberg.
Unfortunately, the killer has struck again, slicing and disembowelling another three adult cats from head to tail before flinging their mutilated carcasses into the yards of homes in Dwyka and Venster Streets.
Over the past ten days, the attacker/s have mercilessly tortured and butchered 11 cats, making this one of the largest animal killing sprees the Cape Metro has ever witnessed.
“Our Inspectorate is working around the clock and following up on all leads to catch the perpetrator(s) but our efforts are being stone-walled by a community gripped with fear,” says the Animal Welfare Society of SA.
“According to a Community WhatsApp Group message, 2 dead cats (excluded from the total of 11) were dumped on the pavement outside the local Police station as if to taunt the authorities.”
The Animal Welfare pleas to the public to please come forward with any relevant information. They understand that you might be scared, but allowing this person to continue this killing spree leaves other beloved cats lives at risk.
If anyone has any information, please call 021 692 2626 or 082 601 1761 (after hours). You may remain anonymous.
