Police knock on doors in case of severed cats heads
TORONTO -- Police will be back out knocking on doors today in a community just northeast of Toronto to try to get some leads on the discovery of several severed cats heads.
York Regional Police Det. Scott Hunter said investigators are asking residents of Whitchurch-Stouffville if they remember seeing anything unusual in the weeks since the first severed head was discovered Aug. 12.
Police say since then, other severed heads of cats have been found in a number of separate discoveries.
In one case, a head and two legs were discovered near a daycare centre.
The matter was brought to their attention by municipal bylaw officers, Hunter said.
"When they started seeing heads displayed prominently along a roadway, things started to add up and it just wasn't looking right," Hunter said.
Pet owners are being urged not to leave their animals unattended outdoors.
Police hope to talk to as many as 1,400 residents by the time they've finished their door knocking today.
