Police are urging people to be extra cautious about the safety of their pets after a cat was viciously attacked and killed early Saturday morning.

A cat was deliberately killed in Truro early on Saturday and police are asking the public to help identify the person involved. The cat in the photo is not the cat that was killed.

Around 3:20 am police were called to the Fairview Drive area after a resident witnessed an act of cruelty.

“A woman said that when she got home a grey and white cat was on her step and she gave it some food,” said Truro Police Service Sgt. Stephen van Herk. She later heard a car pull into the driveway and a man calling the cat toward him.”

When the cat went to the man he grabbed it by the hind legs, lifted it over his head and swung it down into the ground.

“The man is described as being Caucasian, 20 to 30 years old, and wearing a grey t-shirt and possibly a white cap. He was driving a newer model Mazda, which was dark blue or black.”

The women who witnessed the attack told police that the man appeared to be trying to call another cat when he drove down the road.

People are asked to contact police if they have any information that would help identify the man involved.

    I will try again to submit my response to this horrific case of animal abuse. The individual who did this is very sick and whether people like to read it or not , has all the makings of a psycho-path. The individual deliberately took this animal and murdered it. I cannot imagine the pain and fear that this animal would have experienced. I do know, I want this person off of our streets! So, people, someone knows who this person is, or who's car it is, call the Police This poor animal is no longer here, but we as citizens can give it back human respect by catching the individual! Horrific animal abuse!!!
