A jogger made a gruesome discovery while doing exercise one morning in a public park, according to police in Australia.

Sydney police said that they are looking for those behind the extreme case of animal cruelty after six cats were stabbed to death and mutilated.

The Animal Welfare League of New South Wales said six kittens were found mutilated in Baulkham Hills, on Tuesday morning, at around 7:30 a.m.

Animal Welfare League NSW Inspectors are appealing for information from the public after the kittens, estimated to be 6 to 8-weeks-old, were discovered in Crestwood Reserve on Peel Road, Baulkham Hills.

Post-mortems undertaken at the Animal Welfare League of New South Wales veterinary clinic showed all six kittens had been subjected to significant blunt force, many having severe head and spinal injuries.

In addition, the kittens appear to have been stabbed, and four of them had their tails removed.

Investigators believe that the kittens have been killed at different locations before being dumped at the park.

The cats were all lying dead next to one another.
