More than two dozen cats in one town in the east have turned up dead in recent months and officers are looking into who or what is killing them.
Farmville Police says most of the dead cats are turning up in the Northeastern side of town.
We're told that four to five cats turn up dead in a week. Many of the cats were on their owner's property when they were mutilated.
Farmville police first thought it was a pack of wild dogs in the area killing cats, then officers realized it's a pet owner, who is letting their dogs out at night. Officers say now, they hope to find the owner responsible.
Chief Greene says if the dog owner is found responsible for allowing the dogs to run free they could face a fine of up to $175 dollars.
