Fingers crossed as its a parking lot the CCTV will find the perp asap before he moves onto humans, hazarding a guess it was a teenage boy.

RIP poor cat.

usually this depressing news is family members, and as an animal lover, I'm happy it was a feral cat and not a husband, wife, mother etc. feral cats exist cause people just throw their rubbish in the street. family is more important.

@Goodlucktoyou: Given that torture of animals usually precedes torture of humans, showing happiness is premature of you. Not to mention callous.

This is a cruel, vicious person, who needs to be stopped before they do it again and again.

Even feral cats understand the relationship between humans and cats. One of my cats was a stray... four years later, one could never imagine that he used to be feral.

It takes someone less than human to torture a defenseless animal.

I sure wouldn't want to be a stray cat in Chiba. Lots of them being tortured and killed.
