Sylvan Lake RCMP are asking for the public’s help in finding the person or people responsible for the alleged attack on a cat that led to the feline’s death earlier this year.

Sylvan Lake RCMP received a complaint on May 17 advising that a family cat had been found mutilated on a driveway in Eckville.

At the time of its discovery, the cat was still alive, and was taken to a local veterinarian. Its injuries proved too severe, however, and it was later euthanized.

Police say they were told by the veterinarian that the cat’s injuries were not inflicted by another animal, and instead were the result of a knife or another sharp object.

An investigation has been ongoing since the incident occurred, and police are now seeking the public’s assistance in the matter.

Those with information are asked to contact the Sylvan Lake RCMP detachment at 403-887-3333. Tipsters may remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or by submitting a tip online at www.tipsubmit.com.

Information provided to Crime Stoppers leading to an arrest could result in a cash reward.
