Manenberg police have intensified their search operation for a serial cat-killer in the area.
The number of mutilated and dumped cats has climbed to 34 in the past 23 days.
The felines apparently disappear overnight and their remains are then found dumped in the early hours of the morning.
The Animal Welfare Society has offered a R5000 reward to anyone with information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the animal killer.
Residents have also been urged to stay vigilant.
“Duinefontein road is fast becoming a pet cemetery littered with the mutilated bodies of dead cats and we have intensified our investigation into the brutal slaughter of these defenseless animals many of which were well cared for pets. This maniacal killing frenzy has to stop,” Spokesperson for the Animal Welfare Society Allan Perrins said.
