Serial killers often make the news, but it’s rare to hear about serial animal killers.

Scotland Yard is hunting for the Croydon Cat Killer, credited with killing and dismembering 400 animals. Among those poor creatures are cats, foxes, squirrels, and deer. As is common among those who are willing to brutally harm animals, the fear is that he could target humans next.

But for anyone with a heart, the concern isn’t just that–it’s also that these poor creatures have already suffered at this sadistic sicko’s hands.

What You Need To Know

The Croydon Cat Killer is also known as the Cat Ripper, an homage to Jack the Ripper. After killing an animal with blunt-force trauma, he waits for the blood to clot and then he dismembers them, cutting off paws, tails, and heads with a knife or shears.

Because of the lack of blood at the crime scenes, police think the Cat Ripper kills the animals and then moves them. A team of 15 officers now hunt the Cat Ripper. Police devoted a large budget to finding this serial killer after spending 7,500 pounds on post-mortem exams.

The Cat Ripper lures and kills animals in a 117-mile area in Manchester, Brighton, and the Isle of Wight. Police believe the killer uses raw chicken to tempt animals. It’s possible that this could be the work of more than one serial killer.

Scotland Yard discovered the most recent victims in Chigwell, Alford, and Essex. The police suspect the Cat Ripper to be a white man in his 40s. They think he has brown hair and acne scars and might be seen with a headlamp or torch (flashlight for those in the US). They’re offering a reward of 10,000 pounds for anybody who provides information leading to the Cat Ripper’s arrest.
