Police open investigation after discovery of cat's mutilated body
Beds Police has opened an investigation into the death of a cat, which is believed to have been intentionally killed in Luton.
The incident is believed to have happened during the evening of Sunday February 28 in the Whitehall Avenue area.
The cat’s mutilated body was found by its owners the next day and tests carried out by a vet suggest the cat may have been intentionally killed.
