ST: 4 cats found dead - 3 with stab wounds

Another 4 cats have been found dead in Pasir Ris, bringing the death toll to 7 felines since May 2nd.

Of the 4, 3 were found in Pasir Ris Town Park yesterday, within 50m of one another and with abdominal puncture wounds.

The 4th cat was found nearby, in an open field near Blk 536. It had a fractured jaw.

It had no other observable wounds, and it is not known whether its death was related to that of the other 3.

The SPCA, alerted to the deaths, said the wounds on the 3 in the park were stab wounds, not the result of dog bites.

On May 2nd, 3 cats were found in Pasir Ris Street 21, doused with what is believed to be thinner. Two died and the 3rd was eventually put down as a result of its injuries.

The SPCA is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the person or persons involved in this spate of cat deaths.

The SPCA may be contacted on 6287-5355, Extension 9.
