Keep New Times Free

Reward Offered for Serial Cat Killer

A vicious killer loose in Palmetto Bay and Cutler Bay is believed to be responsible for the death and mutilation of over nineteen cats, most of them family pets. 

The killer mutilates and skins the animals, and leaves them for their owners to find. 

The Human Society has issues a $2500 reward to individuals with information that can lead to the identification, arrest and conviction of the killer, according to CBS 4.

Unsurprisingly, people who brutally murder animals for fun are not usually well adjusted in other areas of life. Men who abuse animals are much more likely to abuse women. While almost all serial killers have a history of torturing and viciously killing small animals.
