The incident occurred on September 7th and police received the call at 3:30 a.m.

“Somebody was reporting that they saw a couple males doing something on her front porch, and we went there and found a mutilated cat on their front steps,” Cpl. Jodi Shelki of the Fort St. John RCMP said. “Police Dog Services were called in and followed a track to another residence.”

Upon further investigation, police found two males in a shed and subsequently arrested the suspects, one of them 44-years old and the other 33-years old.

The RCMP is recommending charges of mischief, cause animal to suffer and a breach of conditions.

However, despite rumours circulating on Facebook, Fort St. John RCMP have not received any calls of animal cruelty in the immediate area since the September 7th report, except for those in regard to cattle mutilation in the Rose Prairie area.
