It’s an old saying that there is more than one way to skin a cat, but when a man had a cat skinned alive in Tennessee reports from concerned neighbors had Murfreesboro police investigating a potential suspect in the animal cruelty case. Unfortunately, the cat skinning suspect is apparently a “serial skinner” since he has already skinned a second cat partially.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, two teenagers decided to torment an eight-week old kitten by taking a video of themselves putting the cat in a microwave and turning it on. Both girls were originally charged with a felony but the judge in the case only sentenced them to 100 hours of community service.
Investigators with the Murfreesboro police department says the suspect partially skinned the cat, leaving the poor animal alive but missing a strip of skin approximately two inches wide and ten inches long, stretching from its neck down its back. The Rutherford County Pet Adoption and Welfare Services say the damage was so bad that the hair and skin was completely missing, revealing the muscle tissue underneath.
The owner of the skinned cat, Donald Free, said he did not see the attack occur but had been told by his wife’s friend that the person who did it was a local man known only by the name “G.” No arrests were made at the time of the initial report, but according to WKRN-TV police say the suspect named “G” is described as a black male who is around six feet tall and may be staying in the area of Eagle Street.
According to FOX17, the worst part is that police believe the suspect may have had another cat skinned alive. The injured cat could not be found and PAWS agents sent a trap to capture the kitty so vets can treat the wounds.
Anyone who has information about the man who had the cat skinned alive is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 615-893-STOP.
