A DEAD cat was found zipped in a gym bag earlier this week by a woman out walking her dog.
Lotty Hewerdine, of Buckminster Gardens, nearly burst into tears when she saw the cat.
Lotty said: “The poor thing had clearly been kicked or physically hurt and killed, as its bones were all broken and twisted. It looked like somebody had killed it and zipped it in the bag or launched it at the tree and kicked it whilst inside out of sheer cruelty.
“I was disgusted. I can’t think what heartless person would do that. I want whoever committed this disgusting act to see this, because I’d like them to know they are vile. It’s absolutely shocking, that poor cat would have been totally helpless. That was probably somebody’s pet.”
The RSPCA are appealing for anyone with information to contact their cruelty line on 0300 1234 999.
