ARDEN ARCADE (CBS13) — People in a Sacramento neighborhood said they’re finding cats sliced in half and decapitated.

This is happening in the Arden Arcade area and neighbors want to warn others about the problem.

Nancy Olsen lives on Laurelwood Way and said her beloved family cat was found on a nearby school’s front lawn, cut in half. She’s convinced this isn’t a coyote or other wild animal based on how the animal was cut.

“It’s really hard to wrap your head around seeing your animal chopped in half and we don’t know where the other half of his body was,” she said.

Olsen had been a mother to her cat named Blue for five years. Her son found Blue severed last Saturday while he was out walking.

“My son did take a picture. There are a couple neighbors down the block that are hunters. They both go ‘Wow, this is like a machete,’” she said.

Olson is not the only one who has come across something like this. Her neighbor Julie Swiecicki said she spotted one cat about a month ago.

“I came across part of a head of a cat, you know the face, and it was on the road,” Swiecicki said.

And that wasn’t the first time.

‘A couple months before that I saw a severed cat. Just the bottom half of the cat and it looks like it was just clean cut,” Swiecicki said.

Both women are convinced this is not a coyote doing this.

“A coyote would just ravage the prey they wouldn’t cut the body cleanly in half and leave part of it,” Swiecicki said.

CBS13 was unable to get a hold of animal control authorities, but the women said they did report what they saw.

Olson said she just wants to know what happened to her cat.

“I try not to think about the last moments of his life and probably the terror that he felt,” Olsen said.

    DO NOT allow your cats (or dogs) to roam around by themselves outdoors! I thought everybody knew that.

  2. Leigh Cooper says:

    I worked for Animal Regulation and Control in Los Angeles and this is not a news to me. Cats were found almost daily cut in half and decapitated with the skill of a surgeon in many neighborhoods and the reason isn’t as sinister as it appears. O
    wls are fierce predators, especially at night and they LOVE cats. Coupled with the fact owls have near perfect surgical abilities, no one would even guess they are the perpetrators.

    Budding Serial Killer on the loose!

  4. Anti-racists say there is a RACE problem that can only be solved when the third world pours into EVERY White country and “assimilates.”

    What if I said there was a RACE problem that could only be solved if hundreds of millions of non-Blacks were brought into EVERY Black country? How long before people realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem, but the conclusion to the BLACK problem?

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  5. Add cat mutilation to hoards of urban tent dwellers and illegal aliens, Hispanic gangs, rat infestations, piles of feces, urination streams and needles and La La Land is another hell on earth DemocRATtically controlled state. California voters just need to keep voting for DemocRATS and they won’t have to worry about the “big one” to destroy their state.

    When you embrace the third world, you become the third world.

  7. Brett Allen says:

    Oh come on tarandfeateru whats wrong with human feces, urine, hypodermic needles, broken glass and all sorts of disgusting things on your sidewalks? The whole west coast apparently is really into all of that. Yes that is all a very direct result of who the fine and competent west coast inhabitants have done when they voted. Keep up voting west coast. You do such a fantastic job of it don’t you? I can hardly wait to see what the next big thing your elected officials give you as a treat. What can top what you already have? In fact, I have a slogan you might want to use-“The west coast is a slum because we are a bunch of bums” or how about this “We are dumb-welcome to our slum”. Keep up your amazing work and oh, about cats being cut in half all I can say is welcome to California!
