The police have now set up a task force to investigate all these cat slayings. Some neighbors have suggested these deaths are the work of coyotes, but if someone actually is killing these cats, it’s a felony.
Police do not want neighbors to call animal services if they find a dead cat. Instead, they are asking neighbors to save the cat remains in a box and call 911. The police will need to examine those remains as part of their investigation.
Police have also set up a tip line for anyone who has information: 214.672.0567.
A Preston Hollow neighbor recently reported her encounter with a suspicious person she thinks might be related to the cat slayings. You can read that account here.
