When dogs attack a cat and kill her, it is described as “an act of nature” by the police. Because of that the police say they are powerless to investigate. They changed their story later on saying that no witnesses had come forward so they couldn’t do anything. Hardly any better. A rather feeble excuse as the police are paid to find witnesses to crimes and then catch criminals. Apparently not in Hartlepool, UK when the cat is an outdoor/indoor cat called Twanny owned by Walter and Eileen.
Someone heard what appeared to be the dogs’ owners saying, “come on we have to go”. So why can’t the police ask some questions and find out who keeps dogs nearby? Clearly the dogs’ owners were present when the attack happened late at night.
Tawnny’s owners had the old fashioned British habit of “putting their cat out at night”. I have no idea why people think they should do this. I presume they actually lock the cat out. It seems bizarre to me but it was fashionable at one time, years ago.
Cats are low priority for the police. Even burglary is low priority never mind attacks on cats. It would be unusual if the police expended any of their precious resources and time to catch dog owners who had allowed their dogs to kill someone’s cat.
