A cat killer is under investigation after the discovery of a grisly sight in Yonkers. Rene Carcamo allegedly killed 25 cats, put them in plastic bags, and hung them from a tree near his home.
The 60-year-old’s morbid work was discovered by public works employees last April and led to Carcamo’s arrest with charges of animal cruelty and violation of environmental conservation law. Officials claim he hung them from a tree on Overlook Terrace as a way of disposing of them.
Many of the cats found dead appeared to be bludgeoned to death and some were even left on the ground under the tree. It is unknown what may have spurred Carcamo to commit such a vile crime against innocent animals, but the authorities are taking it quite seriously.
