N Cat Mutilations May Be Related        Friday, July 19, 2002
The mutilation of a cat in the Avenues this week may have been the second such incident in the neighborhood in the past two weeks, animal services officials said Thursday.     After hearing the story of a 7-year-old neutered male cat who was found mutilated Wednesday morning, an Avenues resident called Salt Lake County Animal Services to report he had found a dead cat near his home a couple of weeks ago, said Temma Martin, animal services spokeswoman.     The cat, which did not belong to the man, had been gutted and decapitated, and the man thought it had been attacked by another animal, Martin said. He disposed of the body, which he said looked like it was cut open from the side.     The man lives in the area of J Street and 600 North, Martin said. The mutilated cat found Wednesday was near H Street and 500 North. A hole larger than a tennis ball had been cut into its side, and its intestines had been removed and set beside the body. Its heart was missing, authorities said.     The two cases sound "similar enough" to be linked, Martin said Thursday.     The Humane Society of Utah is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible, said Gene Baierschmidt, the society's executive director. Also, a Taylorsville couple stepped forward Thursday to add $500 to that reward. Steve Russell is offering the reward with his wife, Sarah.     Anyone with information on the case can call county authorities at 743-7045, or John Fox, cruelty investigator for the Humane Society of Utah, at 261-2919, Ext. 210.

N Salt Lake City, Utah             
Since May 2002, seven mutilated cats - only the front halves left behind - have been reported in Salt Lake City, Utah. The first week of November, a resident found the front half of an "adult orange tabby" in a cemetery. Right behind the cat's front shoulders, a precise, bloodless cut had severed the rest of the body which was missing.
  Temma Martin, spokeswoman for the Salt Lake County Animal Services, told reporters, "Whether it's a predator or a deranged person, something is getting people's cats. You just never think it's going to happen to you. It's too dangerous to let your pets wander. This needs to be taken very seriously."

In Salt Lake City, the Humane Society of Utah sent a letter to the city's police chief in March urging that he have investigators question accused Elizabeth Smart kidnapper Brian David Mitchell about a string of cat killings.
The letter cited Mitchell's proximity to the neighborhood where some of the killings took place, the fact that the mutilations "indicated a ritualistic or cultlike motivation" and Mitchell's alleged past cruelty to animals.
The theory proved wrong when investigators discovered Mitchell was out of the state when three of the cats were killed.
Despite his skepticism, Lockwood said it is possible a person or people are responsible for the cat mutilations.
"I wouldn't rule it out," he said. "I think it is possible that some of these are attributable to people. I think it is extremely unlikely that an individual or a group of individuals are cruising between Denver and Aurora and Salt Lake in search of cats - that's extremely unlikely."

The Mysterious Cat Mutilations Continue
The condition of the mutilated cats are such that a "predator" killing is highly unlikely.

A Utah State University professor said that whoever is responsible for recent cat mutilations in Denver and Salt Lake City could present a danger to humans as well. "Very clearly, people who have this history are much more likely to be coming in contact with the criminal justice system and are more dangerous to human, welfare as well," said Frank Ascione, a professor in the department of psychology and adjunct professor in family and human development at USU.

We will be working with several researchers and organizations in our investigation on the Salt Lake City Cat Mutilations  We would like to possibly compare the cat mutilations with other cases, mainly Cattle Mutilations. We would also like to be informed of any future occurances of mutilations and examine the animal/s to make comparisons to other mutilation cases. (cuts, burns, traces,etc.) if possible. We hope to be of assistance or offer another view into this ongoing investigation. We offer our services to this cause and hopefully end the bizarre killings in the Ave's of Salt Lake City
