Horrific discoveries have been made at the home of Nancy Simes over the past several weeks.
Simes runs a “cat colony” at her home on Robin Road in Coatesville, Pa., where she has found seven dead cats — four with no signs of trauma and three that were mutilated. The cats were between four weeks and one year old.
The Chester County SPCA claims Simes and her husband feed, spay/neuter, and care for outdoor cats around her home. Protective Animal Services is investigating these deaths because this constitutes animal cruelty.
They do not believe that the deaths were caused by another animal, but were instead an act of violence caused by a human.
Warning: The following paragraph contains disturbing information. Read at your own discretion.
By Simes’ trash can, they found the lower half of a kitten, and the other two mutilated kittens were found on her porch. One was bludgeoned and had massive head trauma, and the other was disemboweled with its remains left in a pile.
Neighbors stated that they were not bothered by the cats, and are extremely concerned and want the person or persons responsible for these horrific acts found.
The SPCA is asking for anyone with information to call (610) 692-6113.
