Dead cats raise suspicions of being poisoned

SAFFORD – Last Friday evening a concerned citizen reported to authorities that they felt someone was poisoning cats at their rental property on 5th Avenue. There were 5 dead cats on the property and surrounding properties. The officer looked around for anything that would indicate the animals being poisoned and nobody in the area knew who would want to poison the cats. The citizen stated the cats wander across the street around the middle school. After the officer looked around, nothing seemed to indicate to the officer the cats had purposely been poisoned.
