Colbert County Animal Control is asking for the public’s help after a dismembered cat was found in a parking lot Tuesday morning.
Anthony Wilbanks, animal control officer, said the cat, which appears to have been cut in half, was found by an employee about 8 a.m. in the parking lot of Logan’s Roadhouse on Woodward Avenue in Muscle Shoals.
The cat's heart and lungs had been removed.
No blood was present, indicating the cutting was done elsewhere, Wilbanks said.
"It's just strange. I've seen dead dogs and dead cats but I've never seen one cut in two and spread out,” said Wilbanks.
Wilbanks said the other half of the cat has not been located
"It could be some kids thinking it’s funny. It wouldn't surprise me if the other half of the cat ends up at another business in two or three days,” Wilbanks said.
Animal Control is asking anyone with information to come forward and call them at 256-381-4073.
