A Resident on King Edwards Avenue fears the U.K Cat killer may have returned to Aylesbury after three beloved rabbits were found mutilated in their hutches.

There were reports of decapitated cats in Aylesbury around Christmas time last year, suspected to be linked to a spate of violent animal murders and mutilations commited across the UK.

A cat named Leo, from Cherwell Avenue was also found decapitated last August.


Another cat’s tail was found later that month.

He does not only attack cats, but foxes and rabbits too.

He is believed to have killed more than 400 animals to date.


Bryn Jackson, who lives on King Edward Avenue fears the U.K Cat Killer (Also reffered to as the Croydon Cat Killer and the M25 cat killer), has returned.


He said: “My three rabbits are housed in a well enclosed area and could only be accessed by a locked 6 1/2 ft solid gate at the front of the house, or over fences from neighbours houses.


"The rear of the garden is pretty much unaccessible without causing a disturbance.


“This person most likely conducts recces through people’s gardens to identify those with small pets, and then returns at a later date to conduct the killings: I’m not sure that people don’t just think the killings are opportune and random. It is clear from what has happened here that our rabbits were targeted through prior reconnaissance.


Bryn is currently waiting on confirmation that the mutiliations were caused by a sharp instrument, but he believes the precision of the cuts and the places where they were made to remove the head and tail clearly demonstrate this was done by a human, rather than an animal.


Worryingly, he also suggests that the killer must have knowledge of animal anatomy because of the precision of the cuts.

Other areas include London - where the killings are suspected to have started - Manchester, Surrey, Berkshire and Birmingham.


Do you think that your pet may have been a victim of the UK cat killer?

South Norwood Animal Rescue and Liberty (Snarl) has been cataloguing the deaths, and helping police with the investigation.

Snarl co-founder Tony Jenkins has said previously to media outlets: “We are seeing the exact same injuries, and he leaves a signature.

“If there is more than one killer, it is likely to be a joint enterprise rather than a copycat killer.

“We suspect he gets off on hanging about and watching people’s reactions. We can’t prove that, but we strongly suspect it is the case because of the way he is displaying the bodies.

“It is definitely an act against humans on that basis – he leaves them underneath bedroom windows whilst he hangs around to see someone find their beloved cat decapitated.”

Asked what he thought the killer’s motive could be, Mr Jenkins replied: “I think the motive is to horrify humans. Why else would you get a fox and cut its head completely off and then place the body pointing to the children’s playground not 10 metres away.

“It is definitely an attack on humans, to terrify humans.”
