Part 1: 2010 Half-Cat Mutilations

“It appeared the 2010 cats in Vancouver were cut in half surgically, and we had one half-cat looked at by a veterinarian and it was determined that cat was cut post-mortem.”

- Sgt. Peter Thiessen, RCMP

October 12, 2010  Vancouver, B. C., Canada - Since June 2010, at least nine half-cats have been reported to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in the White Rock, Langley, and West Vancouver regions around Vancouver, British Columbia. No photographs of the current cat victims are available, but today I interviewed one of the investigators, Sgt. Peter J. Thiessen, Senior Media Relations for the Lower Mainland District of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Surrey, B.C., Canada.


Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, has been the location of many half-cat mutilations
for at least twenty years. In July to September 2010, White Rock, Langley and
West Vancouver experienced at least nine bloodless, half-cat cases reported to the
Royal Canadian Mounted Police office in Surrey, B. C.   Bellingham, Washington,
(bottom red circle) has also had several half-cat mutilations over the past couple of decades.


Interview:

Sgt. Peter J. Thiessen, Senior Media Relations Officer, Lower Mainland District of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Surrey, British Columbia, Canada:  “I first became aware of the half-cat problem several weeks ago in July 2010 when we had several reports in White Rock, British Columbia (southeast of Vancouver and northwest of Bellingham, Washington). White Rock had three separate half-cat incidents over several months. Then I became aware that another adjacent community, Langley, outside of Vancouver, B. C., had five similar half-cats in the weeks of July and August 2010.
