Oct 6, 2013 / 7:39 am
Police north of Toronto will be knocking on doors today in search of clues to the discovery of some severed cat heads.
Investigators with York Regional Police are canvassing a community in the town of Whitchurch-Stouffville to see if anybody spotted something suspicious.
Police say that since Aug. 12, severed heads of cats have been found in six separate incidents.
In one case, a head and two legs were discovered near a daycare centre.
Police don't know why the felines were dismembered, but investigators believe someone is acting intentionally.
They say the heads were all placed within a one-kilometre area of residential neighbourhoods.
Pet owners are being urged not to leave their animals unattended outdoors.
