RSPCA hunt ghouls after a cat was tortured to death then BARBECUED in South Yorkshire

  • A pet cat was found burned and with a skewer through its body on Thursday
  • It is unknown whether the animal was alive when it was put on a barbecue 
  • The RSPCA are hunting for the cat’s owners and anyone who was responsible 

A dead pet cat left skewered and burned on top of a disposable barbecue down an alleyway has prompted an RSPCA hunt for the sick ghouls who tortured it. 

An investigation is underway following the grim discovery opposite a row of shops in Wheatley in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, on Thursday morning.

The female cat had been a family pet and was microchipped, but the RSPCA have been unable to track down its owner. 

The rescue charity have spoken to the person it was registered to but they revealed the cat and its kittens were rehomed two years ago.

RSPCA Inspector Tamsin Drysdale said: ‘The person who found the cat said she had a skewer through her body and was laying on the top of a disposable barbecue.

‘She was so badly burned it isn’t possible to be sure what colour her fur was.’

Ms Drysdale revealed it was unknown whether the cat had been burnt while still alive but she ‘very much hopes’ it was dead.

‘We don’t know whether this happened while the cat was alive or dead, but I suspect, and very much hope, it was the latter,’ she added.

‘The cat was microchipped and after a couple of days of trying I have now been able to speak to the person whose details were registered.

It was impossible to tell what colour the cat’s fur was because she had been so badly burned

‘They said that they rehomed the cat and her kittens two years ago but they couldn’t tell me who to.’ 

‘If anyone has any information at all that might help me to find out what happened here please call the RSPCA inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018.

‘Did you see something? Did you hear something? Do you know who the cat might have belonged to? Someone out there could be looking for and missing this cat and I am very keen to find her current owner.’

The RSPCA is continuing an emergency service through the lockdown period.
