Brighton cat killer: Man arrested after death of 25 cats

A 52-year-old man has been arrested as part of an investigation into the deaths of 25 cats in Brighton.

The man was detained by police following the death of a cat that was found seriously injured near Trafalgar Street in the East Sussex city on Saturday.

He has since been released on bail.

Police are looking to speak to a witness who is believed to have stroked the cat before it was injured.

The arrest follows a Sussex Police investigation during the past 18 months into at least 25 cats who have been killed or seriously injured in the city.

Meanwhile in Leicestershire:

Cat shot with crossbow bolt in 'sickening' attack
‘It’s a miracle that no serious damage was done,’ says RSPCA

A cat was shot by a crossbow in “sickening” attack, the RSPCA said.

The black male, nicknamed Robin by staff who cared for him, was found by a passer-by in the Leicestershire village of Glenfield with an arrow sticking out of his shoulder.

The wounded animal was immediately taken to a vet, who managed to surgically remove the large bolt before contacting the welfare charity.

“This cat had a very lucky escape – it’s a miracle that no serious damage was done. He’d clearly been shot at deliberately with a crossbow and the bolt was lodged in his shoulder and protruding out past his cheek," said RSPCA inspector Karl Marston.

“He needed surgery to remove the large arrow and continued treatment to nurse him back to health but he’s now doing really well.”
