Chester County SPCA Issues Warning After String Of Brutal Cat Attacks

Philadelphia (CBS) – A recent string of brutal attacks on cats has the Chester County SPCA issuing a warning.

The Chester County SPCA reports four incidents of cat cruelty within the past few months. They warn cat owners to keep their cats inside.

“We’ve had cats disemboweled, cut in half, shot with an arrow, beaten to death,” says spokesman Rich Britton.

And during the latest incident from earlier this month, a Malvern family lost their cat “Furball”

“It was an indoor-outdoor cat. Left the house on November 11th, came back on November 15th crawling back to the house, paralyzed and in a great deal of pain. Got to the vet and realized the vet had to euthanize the animal and noticed that it was shot with a bb.”

Britton says they’re not sure if the incidents are related and the investigation is ongoing.

If you have any information the Chester County SPCA urges you to call them and you can leave an anonymous tip at 610-692-6113 x213

    There is a special place in hell for people who hurt animals.

    When they catch this freak of nature, they need to shoot and disembowel him, see how he likes it.

  • Jon

    No cat owner should ever let their cats outside. They can run away, get diseases from stray cats, and kill rare birds.

      Agree.. pets absolutely should remain inside.. makes no sense to allow them to become vulnerable to sick people who are despicably cruel… besides increased chance of being prey to other animals, etc. KEEP YOUR PETS INSIDE.. they deserve love, warmth, affection, kindness and care.. as we receive all back in return.. God Bless those animals that have been suffering emotionally and physically..
