I like cats but not stray and feral cats. They can become pests and even dangerous carrying all sorts of bad stuff. There are just too many around and if the government won’t address the problem ticked off citizens will. This looks like the case. Not a psycho as their heads are still intact.

Five stray cats? This person needs commending not condemning. He’s doing the job that local councils are not doing. Stray cats are a menace. They carry disease, kill any local and native wildlife they can catch and, on occasion, attack people. They are a huge problem in many parts of Japan and should be controlled.

murderers usual begin with cats & dogs and work their way up to human beings. hopefully, the killer will  be caught before they can poison any people.
