Another cat found mutilated in Weston, investigation continues

WESTON, Fla. (AP) — Deputies with the Broward Sheriff’s Office are looking into another case of a cat being found torn in half in Weston, the third confirmed incidence in the last two weeks.

Last Monday, Local 10 News was the first to report on a series of alarming cases. More residents came forward the next day to report their cats had been slain and mangled.

The most recent cat was discovered in the gated Savanna community of Weston. It’s yet unclear whether the two cases are linked.

One resident told Local 10 News, “This was something that had been cut in three parts and it seemed like it came from a sharp tool.”

The cats were found chopped in half in the first two cases, with no blood on the scene. According to investigators, the most recent case looks to be different. The cat’s remains were not well-preserved, and the area is notorious for predatory species such as coyotes, which have been known to prey on pets.

Deputies have stated that they want to be able to study the carcasses, and that some of the instances do not appear to be tied to animal attacks, according to their reports.

Local 10 News received a letter from residents in the Savanna area.

“Several cats have died in our community in the last few months,” it says. “It’s unknown what or who is to blame for these events, whether natural or planned.”

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is urging residents to keep an eye on their pets, and deputies are urging anyone who discovers odd animal remains to notify them immediately.

“Our investigators will continue to actively examine these investigations in order to establish who or what is responsible,” said Veda Coleman-Wright, a BSO spokesperson.
