    FL - Cats being mutilated and killed in miami-dade, fl

    SNIPPED:
    "Miami Area Sees Rash of Cat MutilationsBy SARAH LARIMER, AP
    posted: 3 HOURS 38 MINUTES AGOcomments: 215filed under: Animal News, Crime News, National NewsPrintShareText SizeAAAMIAMI (June 10) -- The black cat's body was found in the grass, just feet from the hedges where she slept each day.
    Miss Kitty was still warm to the touch when the South Florida couple who cared for her found her in the yard next door. Her head was smashed and her back legs skinned, like pieces of chicken in a grocer's freezer. And she was not the only one to suffer such a fate.

    'I Feel Terrorized'J Pat Carter, AP4 photos Alicia Glatzer holds a photo of one her cats, Sarah, Tuesday, at her home in Miami, Fla. Sarah is one of about two dozen cats that have been brutally killed over the past month in two south Miami-Dade County communities.

    Horrified owners have been finding their cats killed and mutilated for the past month in two south Miami-Dade County communities. Many of the cats were missing fur and appeared to have been cut with a sharp, straight instrument, police said. In all, investigators are looking into about two dozen deaths, with enough evidence to try to prosecute at least 15 of the cases.

    Louis B. Schlesinger, a professor of forensic psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, said residents should be cautious, even if initial signs don't indicate humans are in danger. He said the man believed to the "Boston Strangler" also shot cats with arrows.
    "This should be taken as seriously as could possibly be," he said.
    Local authorities are urging pet owners to keep their animals indoors. A tip line has also been established, and local organizations have contributed thousands in reward money for information would helps lead to the arrest of the culprit.
    A month ago, 42-year-old Alicia Glatzer's husband found their cat, Sarah, outside their Palmetto Bay home. The cat had been skinned and half of her face was missing. The family initially thought that the cat had been hit by a car, but a week later learned of the other killings.

    I hope they catch whomever is doing this, and fast. People, if you can call them that, who do these things can escalate to killing humans.

    I know exactly how these owners are feeling. I found my cat on our neighbors lawn and she was cut in half.

    Sick, sick people. When they find this POS who's doing this I think they need to be mutilated.

    Thanks, Marla. No they weren't. We had two new "families" move into the neighborhood right before that. I have my suspicions but can't prove it.

    I'm glad my other two cats stay in the back or front yard and don't wander off like Buttons did.

    I feel so sorry for your kitty and for you. That is horrible, unthinkable. I hope they catch the person who is doing this soon. And yes-- I hate to say it but I'd love to see this perp get mutilated the same way!

    OMg how frikkin horrible! This is my worst fear to come upon an animal in this way. The only reason I couldnt be a veterinarian is because I know there would be so many I could not save. What a horrible fate these poor babies had to go through. Hopefully they went into shock quickly and couldnt feel all of the horrible things these sick sick persons put on them.

    Five more cats found slain in Palmetto Bay yards
    The cat killer stalking Palmetto and Cutler Bay felines appears to have struck again on Wednesday, when five more were found dead.

    So far, police have evidence to file charges in 15 cases, said Miami-Dade Police Detective Roy Rutland, a department spokesman. Detectives are awaiting the results of necropsies before deciding on other cases, Rutland said. The charge probably would be cruelty to animals, he said.

    Rutland would not say whether police had a suspect.

    If they have enough evidence to file charges, doesn't that mean they have a suspect?

    God, this is horrible. I just cannot imagine. How can he do this w/o the cats screeching....does he just sneak up on them? So many cats are skiddish.....they would run off if approached by a stranger.

    This person is a serial killer in training. Very scary.

    FIVE more??? Surely, someone has to have seen something! I read about this on the news yesterday and was horrified! If LE has evidence to file charges on 15 of the cases, they need to do so NOW!!!! Why wait??? I can't wait to find out the identity of the perp(s).

    I seem to remember other periods of cat mutilations. IIRC, they seem to come in waves, 3, 4 years apart? Sometimes I wonder if it is just one or two sick individuals doing this or a planned ritual of some kind.

    there were other cat mutilation periods in Miami?

    What I find most disturbing is that (I believe) all of the cats were found dead in their own yards. So, someone finds the cats, kills them and returns them to their yards or the cats were all just killed in their yards. When I had an out door cat, she wandered around and didn't always stay in my yard

    Not sure if it was Miami. I just remember there have been several spates, years apart, where lots of cats get mutilated in a certain place. If I get a chance I'll look this up and see where the other mutilation cases have occured.
