THE RSPCA is investigating a disturbing report of a cat being beaten and strangled to death in Roleystone.
The incident occurred at a property on Brooks Road.
A neighbor found the cat dead on the owner’s driveway with a length of rope nearby.
The cat was taken to a nearby vet, where it was confirmed she had likely died from blunt trauma to the head and strangulation.
The attack occurred last Friday in the morning/early afternoon while the cat was tethered on a leash in the front garden of the property.
The injuries do not appear to be consistent with a dog attack or being hit by a car and the photos are too graphic to share.
If you have any information about this incident, were in the area and saw anything suspicious, or have CCTV or dash cam footage from that time, please call the RSPCA Cruelty Hotline on 1300 278 3589, or complete an online cruelty report at https://
