Police Investigate Report of Beheaded Cat

Published: 19th April 2017 17:10

Police say that they are investigating the killing of a cat in Marmion Road, Southsea, overnight on 16 April, into 17 April

Police say that they received a report that a cat was found beheaded and that the incident is being linked to two other occurrences in the force area, in which cats have been killed. 

One incident happened overnight on 3 April, into 4 April, in Atlanta Close, Southsea and the other incident happened overnight on 22 July 2016, into 23 July 2016, in Avenue Road, Sandown, on the Isle of Wight.
