Residents shocked by sadistic cat killings

Police are seeking three teenagers suspected of brutally killing more than 10 stray cats over the Spring Festival holiday.

Almost daily over the break at the No.2 Taolin Neighborhood in Pudong, cleaners and residents discovered cats that had been disembowelled or had their throats cut.

"One day, I saw a dead pregnant cat whose belly had been ripped opened and a fetus taken out and left beside it," said a resident named Lu.

He said incidents of cats being killed began last July, and had become increasingly brutal.

In another recent case, a cat's head was smashed open and its brains scattered around.

The neighborhood had more than 40 stray cats, and residents often looked after them, said Lu. But now numbers were down to around 10.
