£1,000 manhunt launched to find ‘scum’ who battered and hanged cat to death
Animal lovers have clubbed together to post a £1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a sicko who killed a pet cat in Bristol.
Evie was found tied to a fence with a rope around her neck and with other injuries, Bristol Live reports.
A post-mortem has revealed that she died from being hanged and it’s unclear whether her other injuries were from being beaten or self-inflicted in her desperation to escape.
The cat's owner said Evie hadn’t been seen since the previous evening and on Saturday she was called by a local vet to say her cat had been found dead by a member of the public.

Evie was just 18 months old and was a rescue cat from the Holly Hedge animal rescue centre, rehomed in Charlton Hayes along with her sister Kiki when they were kittens in November 2018.
A Facebook post from Holly Hedge said: “Evie, a sweet and loving little soul who lived happily with her family and sibling, was very much loved and in a wonderful home with people who adored her."

It continued: “She trusted humans as she had only ever known kindness in her short life – until the evil, sadistic perpetrators targeted her and so cruelly ended her life.
“The sadness we feel for dear little Evie and her grieving family is overwhelming, and all of us at Holly Hedge are grieving with them and are totally devastated by this heartbreaking news.

“What cowardly low life scum of the earth would commit such a heinous crime on a defenceless creature who had never harmed anyone and only ever wanted to be friendly? Whoever they are I hope they get what they deserve, but sadly that won't bring Evie back.
“We would also ask that anyone owning a cat in and around the Patchway area be vigilant and try to keep a close watch on their cats, and ensure that they are kept in overnight as soon as it gets dark – there are some evil, dysfunctional apologies for human beings out there who are preying on defenceless animals!”
