Six cats found mauled and dismembered in same street
SIX cats have been found dead in the same street.
An investigation has been launched by animal welfare charity the RSPCA following the incident in Rhondda Cynon Taf.
All the animals were found mauled and dismembered in Gwernllwyn Terrace, Tylorstown, over the space of eight weeks.
The last animal was reported dead to the RSPCA on September 30.
The charity said the cats might have been killed by a dog and it has appealed for witnesses to come forward.
RSPCA inspector Selina Chan told the BBC: “This is a very distressing report and must have been incredibly upsetting for the owners to find their pets like this.
“It’s vital that anyone who knows anything about this horrible incident comes and talks to us in confidence.
“It is likely that the animal responsible for these deaths is probably a large dog, but we need more information before we can take this any further.”
