The head of a cat reportedly found in a garden in Dartford has prompted a couple to warn pet owners to stay vigilant.

An anonymous post on Dartford Gossip Facebook page read: "This evening my husband unfortunately found the head of a cat in our garden (doesn’t look like it’s been done by another animal).

"We will obviously be calling the RSCA tomorrow morning but wanted to warn those with outside cats."

The cat's head was found in the Willow Road area and South Norwood Animal Rescue and Liberty (SNARL) is investigating.

Julie, from SNARL, told News Shopper: "We collected the head this morning and are waiting for the vets to call.

"Not 100 per cent it’s a victim."

We will be bringing you an update once we hear from the vets.

SNARL has been investigating the so called 'Croydon Cat Killer' since 2015.

The team, who has appeared in a VICE documentary, suffered a hit last September when police concluded that foxes were responsible for hundreds of pet deaths.

Police had been investigating for three years and after a lengthy investigation found no evidence of human involvement.

However, SNARL, and some families of pets, insist the deaths are too meticulous for humans not to be responsible.
