Horrified woman finds dead cat found hanging from barbed wire with noose in Neasden


The RSPCA are investigating after a dead cat was found hanging from barbed wire with a noose in north west London.

Inspectors were called out to Besant Way in Neasden after a woman made the horrific discovery.

The charity said the sandy ginger tabby was hanging by its neck from a line of barbed wire attached to a wall.

Deputy Chief Inspector (DCI) Nicole Broster, who is investigating the incident said: “I was concerned when the call came in and when I arrived at the scene I was absolutely horrified at what I saw.

“This poor cat was left hanging from his throat, attached to the barbed wire with a twine noose, about 4ft above the ground.”

She added: “At this point we cannot be a 100 per cent sure whether he was dead before being hung up like this, or whether this is how he died. 

“However I highly suspect from the evidence found that he was alive when he was strung up and put in the noose. 

“It is awfully distressing to think he may have suffered so unimaginably.”

Ms Broster said other people on the housing estate may have seen what happened before the animal was found on June 4.

She said: What’s particularly concerning is that this is a busy housing estate and the cat’s body was in full view from the road yet we only received one report to our cruelty line. 

“Other people must have seen him or may even have seen what happened.”

Anyone with information should call the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999.
