COATESVILLE, Pa. (CBS) – The Chester County SPCA is asking for the public’s help in finding who is responsible for maiming, killing and dumping several kittens at a home in Coatesville.

Nancy Simes operates a cat colony at her home on Robin Road. She feeds, spays and neuters, and generally cares for feral cats.

Simes told the Chester County SPCA that within the last two weeks, someone has dumped several dead kittens on her property.

“Four kittens at this point in time have been mutilated, and a couple have been left on her porch,” says the SPCA’s Rich Britton. “Another one was left near a trash can, disemboweled. One was cut in half. Some heinous, heinous crimes that the Chester County SPCA has been investigating.”

Three of the kittens were believed to be between six and eight weeks old, the fourth was between four and six months old.

Britton urges anyone with information on the incident to contact the SPCA’s Animal Protective Services at 610-692-6113, ext. 213. The line operates 24 hours a day.
