According to a Florida dog owner, at least one of the dogs behind a rash of cat attacks in the Murray Hill area of Jacksonville, will be put down. According to First Coast News, several dogs have been roaming the area for some time and over two dozen cats in the neighborhood have fallen victim.
Just last Friday, seven cats were killed by the mixed breed dogs – Elizabeth Breting, the owner of one cat, saw a surveillance video of the dogs attacking. She told First Coast News, “They were just basically eating my cat,” adding, “I cried for about 24 hours. I miss my cat terribly.”
According to News Jax 4, police records indicate that the dogs belong to Brandon Carlisle, a man who lives not far from where the attacks are happening. It is believed that animal control picked up the dogs, but returned them to Carlisle.
Why the dogs are allowed to continually roam the neighborhood, without supervision, is unknown. The city is currently investigating the situation.
