The RSPCA is appealing for information following allegations that two young boys were seen holding a cat and feeding it to two dogs.
The incident was alleged to have happened in the Coppice Road area of Highfields, Doncaster on February 8. It was reported to the RSPCA and an investigation was launched.
RSPCA inspector Jo Taylor said: “The RSPCA was contacted regarding reports that a live cat was seen being held by two youngsters who appeared to be feeding it to two dogs.
“I have carried out a number of enquiries so far – but to no avail and I would appeal to anyone who has any information regarding this to contact me please.
“The body of the cat has been retrieved and we are now keen to speak to anyone who has any information.
“The boys were said to be around six to seven years old and the dogs were on leads and were described as having small grey bodies and brown heads.
“The cat, a female tabby, sadly died later as a result of her injuries.”
The RSPCA is keen to hear from anyone who has any information regarding this to call the RSPCA inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
