M25 Cat Killer - £10,000 reward

Between Saturday 9th – Sunday 10th December, the person known as the UK Animal Killer (aka The Croydon Cat Killer, Croydon Cat Ripper and M25 Cat Killer) is suspected of killing and mutilating a Twickenham cat, leaving the body near Squires Garden Centre on Sixth Cross Road Twickenham TW2.

The cat bore injuries consistent with those inflicted by the person who to date, is suspected of killing over 460 cats, pet rabbits, foxes and other wildlife.

Until the perpetrator is caught official advice is to keep pets indoors as much as possible, especially at night and to ensure gardens are secure, as the perpetrator is known to enter back gardens.

Christabel at Twickenham Vets said: We do not want anyone to panic, but thought it was necessary to write a [Facebook] post to warn people that this has now happened on our doorstep and so please be extra vigilant with your pets over the festive period.
