Dozens of Animals Likely Bludgeoned to Death, Then Bagged and Hung From Trees

YONKERS, NY – April 29, 2014 — On April 24, Yonkers sanitation workers cleaning an empty lot reportedly discovered 25 cat carcasses in plastic bags strung up in trees. The cats—who ranged in age from small kittens to full-grown adults—appeared to have been beaten to death. A baseball bat, two shovels, and a metal pipe were found in the area. Police have yet to make any arrests in connection with the killings. That’s why PETA is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for these violent crimes.

“Cases such as this one show how vulnerable cats become when left outside to fend for themselves—the results can be deadly,” says PETA Director Martin Mersereau. “The community should be deeply concerned because studies show that those who commit violent acts against animals often go on to pose a serious threat to all animals, including humans.”

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the SPCA of Westchester County at 914-941-7797.

  1. This is disgusting. The mayor and police commissioner need to put more resources into finding this sick person and do to him what he did to those cats.

  2. Very scary. Next small children. I would be on high alert – this is evil in your area. Hope the 20K+ pulls them out of their holes. So sad…. there is a special place in hell for people like this. indeed.
