A woman from Harold Hill whose cat was found beheaded and without a tail, has praised the East Area Wildlife Officer for catching the cat killer.
Claire, lost her cat Lincoln on October 6th and the body of a cat was found by her neighbour a few days later without its head and tail.
Claire told the Havering Daily: “I’m relieved he has been caught as I know now that no one else will have to go through the trauma I went through losing my Lincoln. It is heartbreaking to know that your cat has had this happen to him.
“Thank you to PC Kiddle for finding the killer and putting him behind bars. We all love our pets and to know that someone is out there preying on them and doing this to them is horrifying.
“I feel a sense of relief to know that he has been caught.”
