An­other vic­tim of the cat killer

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

AN­OTHER sus­pected vic­tim of the UK Cat Killer, thought to be re­spon­si­ble for more than 300 an­i­mal deaths, has been dis­cov­ered in Northolt.

The body of a tor­toise­shell cat was found by mem­bers of the public in the UB5 5 area of Northolt on Mon­day Oc­to­ber 16.

The uniden­ti­fied cat was re­ported to the RSPCA, which took her to an an­i­mal hospi­tal in Put­ney, where South Nor­wood An­i­mal Res­cue and Lib­erty (SNARL) saw the vic­tim.

The cat was con­firmed to be yet an­other one of more than 300 vic­tims of a no­to­ri­ous cat se­rial killer.

A spokesman for SNARL said: “This cat was def­i­nitely a vic­tim of the Cat Killer but dif­fer­ent to some of the oth­ers. “He had his head and front paws miss­ing when we went to see him. “Northolt seems to be be­com­ing a favourite area for him, which is some­thing we have seen hap­pen be­fore. “The cat killer some­times car­ries out a string of crimes in a par­tic­u­lar area over a pe­riod of a few months be­fore mov­ing on.” The char­ity first be­came aware of the se­rial cat killer’s op­er­a­tions in Croy­don around two years ago and has been work­ing on the cases since then. Their cam­paign­ing re­sulted in Metropoli­tan Po­lice launch­ing Op­er­a­tion Takahe specif­i­cally aimed at deal­ing with the UK Cat Killer.
