The cat killer stalking suburbia

Post by Kitkat on 4th November 2017, 12:43

'Croydon cat killer': Harpenden mutilated rabbit 'linked'

The mutilation and death of a pet rabbit could be the latest work of the "Croydon cat killer", it is claimed.

The dismembered body of rabbit Teddy was found by his owner in his cage in her garden in Harpenden, Hertfordshire.
Animal charity Snarl, which is investigating hundreds of violent UK cat and rabbit deaths, said it thought the pet fell victim to the same killer.
Hertfordshire Police said officers were examining whether the death was linked to the wider inquiry.
The rabbit's owner, who wanted to remain anonymous, said it was "beyond comprehension" that "someone, somehow, climbed into our high-walled garden, killed and mutilated him and left him next to my daughter's little pink Wendy house for us to find".

The lionhead rabbit, whose body was found on Tuesday, was "one of a kind, truly special", she added.

Teddy's owner has urged people to keep their pets indoors

Charity Snarl (South Norwood Animal Rescue and Liberty) said it was "currently investigating what seems to be a spate of attacks across the south east on cats and rabbits".
Last week, the Hertfordshire force confirmed officers were linking the death of a cat in Potter's Bar to the "Croydon cat killer".

The mutilated body of Taz was found by his owner her Potter's Bar garden

Taz's injuries were consistent with those of other mutilated cats and small animals found across the UK, leading the force to believe the deaths are linked.

The Met Police began investigating a series of "gruesome" killings which initially began in the Croydon area in 2015, after Snarl raised concerns.

The suspect became known as the "Croydon cat killer".

Tony Jenkins, head of Snarl, said about 250 cats and a number of foxes and rabbits had been killed in similar circumstances since October 2015.

He believes the same person - referred to by the charity as the "UK animal killer" - is responsible for all the deaths.

Rusty, a one-year-old cat, was deliberately mutilated and left on the doorstep of its Northampton owner's home in August

"We see no evidence there's anyone else involved as the injuries are being replicated," he said.
"It is possible - both geographically and because of the timings - for one person to be doing this.
"This person is a very clever psychopath, he is forensically aware, avoids CCTV and might well travel as part of his job.
"It is most likely Teddy was killed by this same person."
The Met launched Operation Takahe to investigate the links between animal deaths and last month experts at a new forensic lab in Surrey began re-examining some of the corpses for new evidence.

A £10,000 reward is being offered by Peta UK and Outpaced

surprised OMG.. that is so grizzly.  And the worse bit is not knowing which of your neighbours is the psycho that is doing this, or if it is a neighbour.  Imagine living around there with all this going on and knowing that you could be living right next door to such a nasty creature.  Even if you dont have a pet cat or rabbit or whatever, its still a sickening thought.

I hope they find the b*****d and string him up, and my dearest wish is that he is given a punishment to suit the crime.  toetap angry
