Heinous animal-harm discoveries in two South Queens communities over the past several weeks have caught the attention of the City Police Department and the ASPCA.
Last weekend, 14 dead cats were discovered behind a chain link fence along 102nd Street in Howard Beach. The ASPCA is performing necropsies on all 14 cats.
In a possibly related case, stray cats (one is pictured) have been rescued starting last month in Richmond Hill—and rescuers are saying the cats’ injuries are consistent with torture.
The NYPD is investigating both cases. Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
