Furious animal lovers accuse ‘Croydon cat killer’ police of trying to tarnish the reputation of foxes

It's just a very convenient closure for everyone. Police can avoid the work, and their bosses can justify hopping on horseback and chasing foxes with dogs all weekend.

ADAM LUSHER: ‘Animal lovers who don’t accept that the Croydon cat mutilations were the work of foxes scavenging roadkill have launched a furious backlash against the police. Some have accused the Metropolitan Police of dropping the case to save money. Others have suggested that blaming the scavenging animals was a “convenient” way to finally end the three-year-long investigation while justifying senior officers’ enthusiasm for fox hunting.

The couple who first raised the alarm over the ‘Croydon cat killer’ have vowed to continue the search for a human culprit, and animal rights supporters have started a petition which demands the police reopen the investigation and tells officers: “Stop trying to turn foxes into evil creatures when they’re not. You’re making yourselves look like brainless idiots”…

One Twitter critic insisted: “Foxes do not leave cat heads outside their owners’ homes. Foxes do not mutilate cats in a similar manner. This is absurd!! “Police are starting to fail our pets too!!” “The police have no idea,” added another critic. “Foxes don’t remove heads place them in the owners garden and kick in the cat flap do they? I’m angry that they close the case when there’s a twisted human out there.”

Echoing such anger and also suggesting hunters would use the police’s conclusion to unfairly damage the reputation of foxes… Ollie O’Donoghue suggested the police’s conclusion seemed suspiciously “convenient”. “It’s just a very convenient closure for everyone,” he wrote. “Police can avoid the work, and their bosses can justify hopping on horseback and chasing foxes with dogs all weekend”.’ SOURCE…
