Reward posted for cat killer

ANYONE who provides information that leads to the arrest of the murderers of the cat found near the village of Kornos, will be rewarded with €4,000, said an animal rights activist group.

According to a statement released by animal rights activists  PAWS, (Protecting Animals Without Shelter), the money was collected through an online fundraiser.

The activists jumped into action after a cat was found impaled and hanged on a fence behind a church near the village of Kornos in the Nicosia district.

“We want those responsible for this brutality to be apprehended,” PAWS said in a statement. Members of the group reported the case to Kofinou police.

PAWS criticised the police, the veterinary services and the local authorities, accusing them of criminal tolerance that led to the increase in animal-related violence on the island.

“We call upon the chief of Police, the justice minister and the attorney general to intervene and instruct the police to act swiftly to cases such as this”, the statement writes.
