Bizarre Cat Abductions

Police are investigating a spate of mysterious cat disappearances around Newry, Belfast Ireland. The situation is extremely worrying, if it's one person responsible then they are covering quite extensive ground.

The bizarre abductions were initially believed to have been concentrated in the Newry area but disappearances have been reported as far away as Dublin, Enniskillen and Ballymena, with the most recent case reported in Holywood.

"They fit the same general pattern and owners are telling the same stories, there's something very strange going on and it's extremely worrying. One cat gave birth to a litter-of-six but the mother has since vanished. If a cat is hit by a car it might run off somewhere to die, which might be hard to find in the country but not in bigger towns - yet they have completely disappeared."
A database handed over to the PSNI who have confirmed they are investigating the peculiar incidents. Concern has been expressed that someone might be imitating the 'Croydon Cat Killer', who was later dubbed the 'M25 Cat Killer', who is believed to be behind the death and mutilation of more than 250 cats - as well as dozens of foxes and rabbits since 2015 - had to be given a new nickname after more animals were found dead as far north as Manchester. The map shows very clearly that this is happening in towns and cities situated along an extensive stretch of motorway, which is exactly what has been happening in England.
"Now cats are disappearing in the same way here and my fear that this could be something similar has only gotten worse."
Despite more than 1,000 hours of Metropolitan Police time dedicated to solving the chilling case since 'Operation Takahe' was officially launched in 2015, officers have turned up nothing.

Initially, foxes had been thought to be responsible but London charity Snarl revealed some 50 foxes had been found with identical injuries to the cats, and suggested five rabbit deaths and two swan decapitations could also be linked. Many cats have been dismembered, with the deaths described as "gruesome" by animal welfare workers.

Pet owners to have their cats neutered and to keep them indoors.

Forensic scientists have been hired in the hunt for the Croydon Cat Killer. The experts will re-examine corpses of some of the estimated 250 victims of the pet killer. The will carry out new tests for DNA evidence and try to identify a geographical pattern to the slaughter. It is hoped the CSI -style prob will shed new light on who is behind the ritualistic killings, first reported in Croydon, South London, in 2014. The killer was also dubbed the M25 Cat Killer as decapitated victims were found in towns around the motorway.

Post mortems have already been conducted on some cats and their remains frozen. These will now be examined by Surrey-based ArroGen Veterinary Forensics which has been launched to help the RSPCA bring prosecutions.

ArroGen boss Dr Alexander Stoll said of his new laboratory; "It will be a one-stop shop for investigations involving animals. People who harm animals are more likely to abuse humans". A £10.000 reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest.

Campaigners believe the killer bludgeons the cats, cuts off their heads and lays out the remains in a ritualistic way.

Gove`s law plan. 
“Michael Gove’s promise to bring sentences in line with Northern Ireland – which has a maximum of five years’ imprisonment – should help to deter people from abusing and neglecting animals, and will finally mean that the sentence fits the crime.”

Apparently the current term for animal cruelty is 6-months. I wonder why this is in the same paper same day, is it to show the people that are victims of cat mutilation to their pet (or kid them up) that something is being done. 250- victims and no one has seen anything, and killings are still probably still going on. Who's financing this anyway, forensics do not come cheap, I think some one is getting worried about the amount of killings. I cannot wait for the forensic results. If they release them.

They say when doing research 'Follow The Money', I wonder who finances ArroGen .
