‘COWARD WITH AN EVIL MIND’ – SIX cats have been found dead and a further 20 are missing after a poisoning incident occurred on Monday in the İskele region. The incident was reported to Cyprus Today by Boğaz-based animal lover Jan Mcghee, who said that on Monday morning a number of cats which she routinely cares for at her home were not present to be fed, but that she initially thought little of it due to the hot weather. However, she then found a halfeaten dead fish outside her gate and began to suspect foul play. The fish, as it turns out, had been laced with poison. Ms Mcghee said that from Tuesday onwards she began to find dead cats around her residence, and that after a while the smell of the dead cats in the area became unbearable.

Neither Girne Mayor Nidai Güngördü, whose municipality is responsible for the village of Doğanköy, nor anyone from the TRNC Waterworks Department was available for comment.
