‘Northern Territory police are on the trail of a serial cat killer after the tenth victim in less than three months was found horribly butchered in Darwin’s satellite city of Palmerston.
Since November, ten cats in the area have been killed and mutilated, with three found dead in the last two weeks. Police believe the same person is responsible for all ten deaths.
The way in which the animals have been killed is chilling. Each cat is skinned, disembowelled and then been put on show for the public to find. Often meat is cut from the bodies and found nearby. Other times it is removed and taken away altogether for an unknown purpose.’
