The RSPCA is appealing to people in Ellesmere Port to keep watch out for a bag which may have a cat’s body inside - which will help an investigation into an act of animal cruelty.
The animal welfare charity is investigating the death of a cat believed to have been fatally injured. However, the body - which is vital evidence - has not been recovered.
It is believed to be located on a sports field in Thornton Road. The body is wrapped in a black towel with paw prints on it and is placed inside a red plastic drawstring bag which says “CEX” on the front.
RSPCA inspector Leanne Cragg said “I have been out looking for the bag but have not been able to locate it - however we are fairly certain that the bag containing the cat’s body is within the vicinity of the sports field in Thornton Road.
“This is a popular dog-walking area and as dogs are curious animals, they might come across the bag. We want to make people aware that we are looking for it and that it is integral to our investigation.
“If you come across the bag, please contact us on 0300 123 8018.”
