Reward in hunt for cat killers; animal charity offers PS2,000.

AN animal charity has offered up to PS2,000 to help find a cruel thug who tied up and killed two cats in Wolverhampton.

The severely injured bodies of the two cats were found mere metres from each other in Newbridge Crescent on Monday, October 10.

Both cats were tied up by the legs and one of them also had a cable tied around her neck and had endured severe trauma to her face and mouth, as though she had been hit with force or run over.

Now PETA, a charitable organisation that works to educate the public about the horrors of cruelty to animals through peaceful means is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

It is also urging residents to keep a watchful eye on their animal companions and to keep them indoors.

PETA Director Elisa Allen said: "It is imperative that any community faced with a cruel and callous act such as this take measures to find the culprit and bring him or her to justice.

"Animal abusers are a danger to everyone - they take their issues out on whoever is available to them, human or nonhuman - and must be caught before they act again."

History shows that past incidents involving cruelty to animals regularly appear in the records of serial rapists and murderers.

Young killers Mary Bell, Robert Thompson, and Jon Venables as well as serial murderers Ian Huntley, Thomas Hamilton (the Dunblane massacre), Fred West, Dennis Nilsen, Ian Brady, and Raoul Moat all started out by deliberately harming animals.

| Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018. For more information about helping animals, please visit PETA. org.uk.
