Cat found strangled to death in Bury St Edmunds
Monday 09 September 2013
Police have launched an investigation after a cat was found strangled to death.
The cat, named Marley, was found by a neighbour of its owner who had been searching for the pet in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, for several days.
The black and brown male tabby had not been seen since Tuesday when it failed to return home after being let out.
A Suffolk Police spokesman said: "The cat had been subjected to an attack whereby gaffer tape had been wrapped tightly around its neck.
"There was also a deep laceration around its neck which may have been caused by the tape."
Officers believe Marley was killed at some point between 10am on Thursday and 4.45pm on Sunday in The Vinefields in the centre of the town.
