The bodies of THIRTY New York cats have been found hanging from a tree in plastic bags.
Department of Public Works offices stumbled upon the bags when they arrived to clean up the area in Yonkers.
One resident said: “That place is always dirty so when you see a bag there, it’s nothing new. You see rats running out of there. It looks like a race. Sometimes you confuse the rats for the cats.”
An investigation is currently underway.
Ernest Lungaro, director of humane law enforcement at the Westchester SPCA, said: “Some of the bodies were severely decomposed. We got a couple that were still fresh, within the last few weeks maybe.”
