We are appealing for information after four dead cats were found in separate plastic bags, dumped in a playing field at Broxtowe, Nottingham.
The bodies were discovered on the morning of Sunday 10 November, in Woodfield Park Recreation Ground, Woodfield Road, Broxtowe, Nottingham.
The four adult cats had been individually placed in Morrisons plastic shopping bags.
They were found by a member of the public who contacted us.
RSPCA Inspector Tina McAdam attended the incident and took the bodies to a vet for a preliminary examination. She said:
“The cause of death is still being investigated at the moment, it is estimated that the cats are likely to have been dead for around a day.
“We are also assuming that the cats may be related, and there is a chance that they could have all come from the same property. They were all in good bodily condition.
“I would appeal to anyone who may recognise the description of the cats, or who may know where they have come from to contact me in confidence on the RSPCA inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018.”
The first cat was a white and black entire male and was wearing a black plastic collar, the second was a black adult entire male, the third was a black adult entire male and the fourth was a black female and was wearing a black plastic collar – it is also thought she may recently have given birth to kittens.
