A week after a severed cat head was found in Oxford, there’s been another revolting discovery of a severed head of a cat about 30 miles away in Fairfield.
“It was a little scary,” said Mark Piers, who said the head was a the putting green behind his house on Steiner Street.
He said he got the shock of his life over the weekend when he went into his backyard.
“I thought it was a glove on the putting green … and as I got a little closer, I noticed that it wasn't. I saw that it was a (cat) head,” Piers said. “The weirdest thing about it is that it was clean-cut.”
A clean-cut would indicate that it was most likely a person who targeted the animal. However, that’s not the only odd part of his story.
“I put a little piece of plastic over it. The next day, my wife called (police) and … when they came here, it wasn't here,” Piers said.
There was another dead animal sighting on Steiner Street on Monday.
A cat carcass was found on Jill Brodie’s property. across the street from Piers’ house.
Animal Control picked it up and Fairfield police said that cat was most likely attacked by a coyote.
“I just noticed the cat in my yard. This is the second one I've found in the past couple of months,” Brodie said.
Residents said there are many coyotes in the area.
“There's a lot of animals running back and forth from the forest,” Ash Nadim said.
Still, Steve Meszaros is worried about the severed cat head that Mark found on his property. He said someone might be torturing and killing animals.
“I was concerned about the coyotes to begin with, but … someone's severing cat heads. That scares me even more,” Meszaros said.
Fairfield Police said they can’t investigate the severed cat head that was found outside Piers’ home because there was no physical evidence.
They added that the coyote population is on the rise and pet owners should keep their animals secure.
