SENATH, MO (KAIT) - "Very bad."
That's how Karol Wilcox, president of Caruthersville Humane Society (CHS), describes the discovery Wednesday morning of a "large amount" of dead cats in a Senath neighborhood.
A resident found the bodies of at least 5 cats on Caneer Street, according to Wilcox.
"We are not sure exactly what happened," she said. "It certainly rises to the level of suspicious and very bad."
CHS is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.
Anyone with information should contact the Senath Police Department at (573) 738-2818 or CHS at (573) 359-0113.
