Fort Worth (WiredPRNews.com) – Authorities are investigating the brutal attack and disappearance of three animals belonging to a Fort Worth family. As reported by CBS 11 News, police are searching for the person or persons responsible for cutting the throat and attacking a dog and cat belonging Cherry Taylor and her family. Taylor is quoted in the report as stating of the dogs she’d had for several years, who failed to return home the night of the attack, “They’re both sweet, very, very sweet dogs. They’re not aggressive at all.”
As noted in the report, the City if Fort Worth is issuing a public warning about the incident, and has asked that suspicious activity or missing pets or abuse be reported to the Code Compliance Department. Brandon Bennet, Code Compliance Director, is quoted in the report as stating of the matter, “when you look at modern day serial killers, you know one of the things they had in common, they started out by abusing animals. And it wasn’t just minor abuse. It was the kind of abuse we saw in this particular case. There’s no reason to believe this was the act of a serial killer. Nonetheless there’s enough of a concern to say we need to investigate and make sure that’s not the case.”
