Target: Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, Metropolitan Police Commissioner, London
Goal: Find and punish the “M25 cat killer,” who is suspected of murdering 200 cats and several other animals.
The decapitated head of a cat was recently found in a pond. The same day, another cat’s head was found in a nearby neighborhood. It is suspected that this is the work of the “M25 cat killer,” a person who police believe has claimed the lives of over 200 cats. The killer is also suspected of taking the lives of rabbits, foxes, and other wild animals.
The attacks have been going on since 2014. The killer’s signature is to cut the heads and tails off of cats, leaving their dismembered bodies to be found by the public. Vets have found chicken in the stomachs of many of the mutilated animals, leading police to believe that the cats are being lured by the killer.
Officials suspect blunt force trauma as the cause of death for many of these animals. They believe that the cats are being run over, or in some cases, thrown against walls until they are dead. In most cases, police suspect that the decapitation and dismemberment is done postmortem. Officials have advised cat owners to keep their pets inside overnight, when most of the killings occur.
These shocking killings are not only barbaric toward the animals, but they are increasingly frightening members of the community. Though a police task force has been on the case, the killer is still at large. Sign the petition below to demand that more resources are allocated to finding and punishing the person responsible for these heinous crimes.
Dear Commissioner Hogan-Howe,
The head of a decapitated cat was recently found in a pond, while the head of another cat was found in a nearby neighborhood. It is suspected that this is the work of the “M25 cat killer,” who has so far claimed the lives of over 200 cats as well as various other animals, including rabbits and foxes. This killer leaves the bodies of decapitated, disemboweled, and dismembered animals for community members to find.
These attacks have been ongoing since 2014. It’s high time that this barbaric offender is found and punished to the fullest extent of the law. We, the undersigned, demand that more resources are dedicated to finding and punishing the person responsible. The community has been terrified for far too long.
