I was on another forum that I frequent, and one of the members had posted that he'd found his pet cat dead on his driveway, with its hide peeled away in an apparently precise surgical fashion, not torn apart as if by another animal. He also said that he had contacted the local police, but that they were uninterested in pursuing the matter. I'm curious how the LEOs here rate such crimes in terms of importance/severity, especially when you consider that serial killer types usually start with animals. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
