Suspect(s) Unknown - We need your help!
The RSPCA in Tasmania is concerned about what it describes as an increasing number of animal cruelty cases in the state.
State president Mick McQueen has described as "disgusting", the weekend attack in the Launceston suburb of Waverley, where a cat was butchered, burnt and then thrown into a private backyard.
Mr McQueen wants a meeting with the Government. "There is a cat problem, there is an over influx of cats and kittens and we'll see if we can work something out with the Government," he said. "Our inspector, any complaints they will jump on it straight away, and for something like that it could be up to $10,000 and a jail sentence."
