Police launched an investigation after children found the cut off head of a cat outside their school building while heading home in the afternoon, according to police in Japan.
Hokkaido police said that the children found the cut off head of the cat on Monday around 4:00 p.m., outside the Municipal Abuta Elementary School.
Police officers who arrived at the scene, searched for the rest of the body of the cat, but it was not found. Police are looking for the person responsible for the beheading of the cat, and they plan to file a charge of animal cruelty.
In another incident that unfolded in July, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office of Ohio, said that they have arrested 24-year-old Rudi Espinoza, after being accused of cutting off the head of his mother’s cat.
Officers were called to a home on Shawnee Lane SE, after residents called them to report that the suspect knocked on their doors, wearing only underwear and covered in blood.
The residents also told officers that Espinoza was acting very strange and seemed to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
During the arrest, they realized that Espinoza was covered in scratches and bite marks. The officers later found the beheaded cat inside his mother’s home.
