The exact location where the pet was found has not yet been disclosed.

Natasha McPhee, director of the charity, said: "The cat bore injuries that only a human could do with a sharp instrument.

"The relevant authorities have been informed and this case has been filed under Operation Takahe.

The animal is not the first to be found mutilated in the Towns, in May, three animals, two cats and a fox were found dead in incidents in Wigmore and Gillingham.

Miss McPhee, added: "We would like to ask that everyone is vigilant in their areas.

"If you hear a noise outside then please check to see if there are any strange goings on."
