Cat killer sought in Yolo County after feline dies from gunshot

A cat killer is being sought in Yolo County after a second feline belonging to a Woodland woman has been found shot to death.

A cat named Soot Soot was found dead in an alley behind the 600 block of College Street in Woodland on Wednesday. The owner last saw her cat alive at 8 a.m. that day.

She then took her child to school only to return 30 minutes later to find her cat motionless. Noticing a wound, she took Soot Soot to a veterinarian who confirmed the 7-year-old Calico had been shot, according to a press release from Yolo County Animal Services.

The pet owner had another cat die from a gunshot in June 2010.

Animal Services requests the public's help in finding the person responsible for the cat's death. Call (530) 668-5287.
