Great — we made the AP…

And that’s never good — because they never write anything good about this area.

From the AP via Richmond Times-Dispatch: Caroline woman’s cats found gutted:

A Caroline County woman became suspicious that someone was targeting her cats after they started showing up dead on the side of the road in front of her house.

A veterinarian’s report and a Caroline animal control investigation shows that Karen Mikkelsen’s suspicions might be right: at least two of the five cats that have died were cut vertically along their abdomens and gutted.

Mikkelsen says her first cat died three years ago, but she didn’t become suspicious until four were found dead since Thanksgiving.

Caroline Animal Control Deputy Assistant Officer J. Heffler says the office began an investigation after they were alerted to the deaths last week.

The perpetrator could be charged with a class 6 felony and face up to five years in prison.
