This is not the first time the Kitty Killer has left police a clue.
The first clue was discovered two weeks ago at the Mooseville Garage. Four hours later, a Calico named Harley Quinn was found face-down in a pool of antifreeze.
The second clue came two days later and was delivered by messenger service to the fire station. Firefighters soon found Dammit, a skittish yellow Tabby dangling from the branches of a nearby tree, caught in a fall without a breakaway collar.
"All we know is the Kitty Killer is still out there and may have targeted more than one victim this time," said Shackles. "It's hard to tell without an apostrophe."
Police have asked all Mooseville residents to keep their cats inside until the perpetrator is caught.
"We need everyone to stay alert. Report any suspicious activity," Shackles said. "If it feels off, looks off, smells off, and sounds off, call it in."
To help encourage vigilance, the Mooseville Humane Society is offering a $10 gift certificate to the Mooseville Café for any lead that results in an arrest.
If you have any information about these crimes or know of anyone who might be involved, contact Chief Woody Shackles at the Mooseville Police Department. Your tip can remain anonymous.
