    There has been a spate of Animal mutilation (mainly cats) on a small estate i was brought up around as of late.

    The BBC does not report it in the link below but it's a gang of yoots going around killing the cats for initiation into a gang!

    They are apparently stringing up the cats, cutting off their tails, beheading them then disembowling them.

    The worst part is that they know where the cats live and they film the whole thing and send the dead cat vid/pics back to the owner.

    Surely you have to be mentally ill to do such things.

    There is a partition asking for the Government to up the laws on animal cruelty which i think should be passed.

    Pet's for some people are part of the family, this must be devastating for the families of the cats, not just because of the loss of life, but because they send the video of it actually happening to the owners, that is just pure evil.

    Personally, if they done this to one of my cats, i would go kill them, i would not care if they we're 10/14/25 or 100 years of age, they would get the beating of their life and i would film it and send it back to their parenst.

    They all need a good fucking slap!

    I am no fan of pets, and cat's that shit on my property boil my piss, but that is sick. They are mentally ill, aka criminally insane, and need locking up somewhere very secure for a very long time.

    I would not be at all surprised if people like that move on to sadistic behaviour towards humans next, lock them away where they cannot do any more damage.

    Exactly.

    And if this is what they use for initiation, what are the gang going around doing on a daily basis?

    About 7 cats been killed now, just spoke to my sister who lives on the estate.

    She is now worried about her two cats, as are a lot of people on the estate. I'm more worried what my 6'5" 17st BiL who has just lost his mum and recovering from cancer will do to the yoots if one of their cats does get killed!

    Yes let's make something that is already illegal more illegal, that'll stop them in their tracks alright.

    Personally, if they done this to one of my cats, i would go kill them, i would not care if they we're 10/14/25 or 100 years of age, they would get the beating of their life and i would film it and send it back to their parenst.
    Oh, maybe not, seems people ignore the law when they feel strongly enough about it.

    If someone hurts a member of my family i will take it into my own hands yes. Simple.

    It would be nice for the Government to acknowledge the severity of the crime though.

    Have all the laws and punishment you want, but if there's no one to enforce them the laws are useless.

    ...and of course you've reported all this to the Feds, enabling them to investigate?

    Lots of laws already.
    Few police to catch offenders/gather evidence.
    CPS too ready to take the easy route and throw out anything not cast iron
    Courts too ready to hand out a trivial sentence.
    Prisons too keen to release on licence before the sentence is complete
    Too many scroats know all this and take a chance/DGAS.

    It's a cat not a human being.
    They could already be locked up for animal cruelty, being knobs, carrying offensive weapons etc etc. making the sernancing harsher won't do jack shit if there's no one to catch them.

    I'd like to see the existing laws being used better, for instance when gamekeepers have been caught killing raptors and either get let off or very light sentancing.
    Leadhills has been in the news for raptor persecution year after year with different gamekeepers running the estate so it seems tk me that its the estate owner ordering it but the gamekeepers get off and the owners never bothered.

    Sentences were increased fairly recently. Edit, or are soon to be, depending on which source you read
