“We started our investigation in September 2015. Since then we’ve collected about 180 bodies, all with similar wounds — their head or tail cut off, or both; some have had their front paws or back paws cut off; some have literally been cut in half.”
- Tony Jenkins, Co-Founder, U. K. South Norwood
Animal Rescue and Liberty (SNARL)
“The cow's milk bag (udder) was taken off in a big, round cut. And the uterus was taken out through the removed udder hole in the abdomen. It was just a weird deal.”

January 17, 2017 Croydon, England, and Prairie City, Oregon - Since the fall of 2015, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) and the South Norwood Animal Rescue and Liberty known as SNARL have worked hard to catch and arrest the perpetrators of at least 180 cat, fox, rabbit and other bloodless animal mutilations in the Croydon region a few miles south of London. By now as another year begins, the investigators and police thought the crimes would be solved. But bloodless beheadings, disembowelments, removals of paws and tails, and cutting bodies in half continue in small animals, especially domestic cats. Some mutilations have been as far north as Manchester and Birmingham, 200 miles and 125 miles respectively northwest of London.
