Severed cats' heads found near Manchester's curry mile

A bin bag containing severed cats' heads has been found dumped on a street near to Manchester's famous Curry Mile, according to the http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/bin-bag-containing-severed-cats-7626419" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">Manchester Evening News.

The regional news site said that the city's council bosses had launched an urgent investigation, and the RSPCA was expected to be brought in as well. The discovery was made by a council worker following complaints of fly-tipping in the area.

The Manchester Evening News reported that the council worker found a single black bin bag containing the remains of cats in Rusholme.

A spokesman for Manchester City Council told the Manchester Evening News that the discovery amounted to ‘an extreme example of animal cruelty'. "A member of our team was called to an address in Rusholme earlier today and discovered a fly-tipped black bin liner containing animal remains. This is obviously an incredibly distressing and sickening incident which we are now looking into but this is the first incident of its kind we have come across.

"At this stage we have no way of knowing how these animal parts came to be where they were discovered but we will be contacting the RSPCA as this is clearly an extreme example of animal cruelty."
