CORPUS CHRISTI - Some south side residents recently have been waking to some horrifying scenes. Cats have been disappearing from homes in the Huntington Park addition and later turning up near their owner's homes - dead and mutilated.

Pet owners in the neighborhood near the corner of Stonemill Circle and Hunt Street are making sure their animals are locked up now that at least three families have had to bury their cats after finding them lying dead in their front yards for all to see.

"We found the cat between our two oak trees just in front of the garden here," Ryan Duncan said.

Lying front and center in Duncan's yard, was his sister's cat, Corona.

"Seeing my little sister's face, after her, our family pet, was slaughtered like this - there's no explaining it really," Duncan said.

A photo shows how Duncan found the animal - with the insides removed, but no trace of blood.

"Being a hunter myself and knowing how to field dress an animal, it's takes time, and it's not a clean process," he said. "I believe they're picking the cats up in the middle of the night and taking it to their place of ritual or house or whatever and bringing the cats back and placing them in the front yard of the owner."

Irene Bost, who discovered a neighbor's dead cats, said she checked on hers many times during the night. Bost lives across the street, and her cat was sitting safely on the roof.

But she said two of her neighbor's cats were killed the same way.

"What's the message behind this?" Bost asked. "They're killing these cats and then placing them in such a way."

Duncan said there's something wrong with the situation.

"It's satanic," he said. "These are kids or some kind of satanic group."

Neighbors wonder when or where it will stop.

"If somebody has the capacity to do that, I just feel like they have the capacity to do this to a human," Bost said.

Residents called police, but all they've done is take reports on the three cat mutilations. Neighbors have discussed offering a reward for information and are even talking about putting up a camera to catch the cat killers.

I'm surprised the cops even care enough to help out, onces when I was at theater rehersals I saw a cop chase a cat down the road in his police car, luckily the cat got away.

I want to say that's just unreal but I guess it's really not. It's just sick and twisted and I think I would just die if I found my cat that way. I would cry forever (okay, maybe not forever but I would really be bothered).

There have been many regional panics over supposed cults attacking pets and farm animals. However, the evidence needs to be examined carefully, because more often than not, the deeds are the work of natural predators and scavengers.

Quote:
Forensic Investigation of Animal Cruelty:

A Guide for Veterinary & Law Enforcement Professionals

by Leslie Sinclair, DVM, Melinda Merck, DVM,

& Randall Lockwood, Ph.D.

Humane Society Press (c/o Humane Society of the U.S., 2100 L St., NW, Washington, DC 20037), 2006. 262 pages, paperback. $59.95.

Cruelty investigators and shelter veterinarians who take their jobs seriously will read Forensic Investigation of Animal Cruelty cover to cover, then wear it to tatters re-reading and referencing it. The $59.95 price tag is steep for a paperback book, but the information within it can save the cover cost many times over in resolving even one cruelty case, by saving investigative time, helping investigators to avoid false alarms and dead ends, bringing more perpetrators to justice, and winning more convictions on stronger charges.

Though fluently written, Forensic Investigation of Animal Cruelty will not be easy reading for non-professionals. Chapters headings include Thermal Injuries, Blunt Force Trauma, Sharp Force Injuries, Projectile Injuries, Asphixia, Drowning, Poisoning, Neglect, Animal Hoarding, Animal Sexual Assault, Occult & Ritualistic Abuse, and Dogfighting & Cockfighting. Each chapter includes detailed discussion of what to expect, what to look for, and how to handle the evidence. Several chapters also review the sociology and demographics of typical offenders.

The discussion of Occult & Ritualistic Abuse offers an especially valuable description of the differences among the practices of the various animal-using religions. The authors rebut the common notion that "witches" and "Satanists" who participate in organized rituals are inclined to harm animals, noting that the number of verified cases is practically nil. Ritualistic animal killing is far more often the work of isolated individuals whom the authors call "self-styled Satanists," and teenagers, whom the authors call "youth subculture Satanists."

Natural predator and scavenger behavior often results in false alarms about alleged ritualistic killings, as ANIMAL PEOPLE pointed out in November 1998 and September 2003. Forensic Investigation of Animal Cruelty provides similar analysis, and adds particulars about "cattle mutilation" cases, which typically result from observers failing to recognize how coyotes, crows, and magpies go about dismembering a cattle carcass. Forensic Investigation of Animal Cruelty does not quite cover everything useful to know about predator and scavenger behavior when investigating alleged cruelty, especially in cases involving hawks, owls, and eagles--but that material is accessible in the ANIMAL PEOPLE articles, and what the book includes is far more than has previously been included in humane investigation training materials.

I can't stand how people think if a person kills an animal and tortures it their "Satanic, satanistic worshipers" if a person kills and tortures an animal it doesn't automatically mean their doing as a sacrifice, they could get a sense of enjoyment out of it, an undescribed pleasure. I'm not condoning people killing animals I just don't see why people automatically want to bring religion into situations, they think uhhhhh satan bad people be bad satan bad uhhhh.
