The Ontario SPCA is asking for help from the public after two cats were found dead in a ditch in Burk’s Falls near the intersection of Katrine Road and Ontario Street.

Construction workers discovered the animals and reported them to the Ontario SPCA last Tuesday. One of the cats appears to have suffered head trauma, while the body of the second cat appears to have chest trauma.

One of the cats is a young female, with medium-long black hair and white markings on her feet and face. The other cat is a young male, with a medium-long black hair. The cats were not microchipped and were not wearing collars. 

Alison Green, Senior Inspector, Ontario SPCA asks “If you witnessed anything unusual in that area leading up to the date when these cats were discovered, please report that information so that we can follow up accordingly."

 They are trying to determine who owned these cats and the circumstances surrounding their death.

Anyone with information that could assist in this investigation is asked to call the Ontario SPCA’s province-wide animal cruelty hotline at 310-SPCA (7722), or email cruelty@ospca.on.ca. All calls are confidential.
