Lincoln: Suspicious deaths of 14 animals
Placer County Animal Services is seeking public assistance
Lincoln California – Placer County Animal Services He seeks any information that can help identify the suspect in the deaths of 13 cats and one hawk.
On January 8th, animal control officers responded to the scene at North Dude Road and Waltz Road in unincorporated Lincoln where a utility worker discovered the deceased animals and contacted authorities. It appears that the animals have been placed there recently. The 13 cats were of varying ages, from oldest to adult cats, and of varying races and colours. None of the cats were microchipped. All showed signs of ill-treatment and appeared to have died within the previous week under suspicious circumstances.
