UK CAT RIPPER CASE: Description Released As Body Count Continues To Rise


1 Minutes Read

An organization trying to solve the case of 300 slaughtered cats has released a description of someone they would like to track down.

South Norwood Animal Rescue and Liberty [SNARL] shared the description in a post on its Facebook group.

The unknown so-called UK Cat Killer, who has been at large since 2015, is believed to have killed cats across south England – including in Kent, Surrey, and parts of London.


The post says the group is interested in tracking down: “A man in his 40s, white, with short brown hair, between 5’8? and 5’11”, average build, possibly with some acne scarring to his face, dressed in dark clothing, with or without a torch, trying to coax cats with a toy or feed them, or looking [into] or entering gardens.

“He may be wearing a headlamp or carrying a torch.”

Do not approach

The group warns people not to approach anyone matching this description.

The Facebook post said: “Do not approach, just call police.

“This is a very general description which could fit any number of people.

“It will not make you a hero or do you any favours if you harm someone innocent.”

Animal Rights group PETA – in conjunction with SNARL – is offering a £10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator.

If you see someone matching this description, you can call 999 quoting Operation Takahe and call SNARL on 07957 830490 or 07961 030064.

Anyone with information about who may be committing these offences can call the Operation Takahe team on 0208 6490216, the police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
