Headless cat found in Danville yard

Original post made on Jul 1, 2008

It seems to me that Sgt. Kevin Daley was just looking for a headline. As for the cat's attacker, "my best estimate would be a coyote," he said, citing other possibilities such as a bobcat, mountain lion or even a loose rottweiler."
Why a "loose rottweiler"? Isn't there enough breed-specific fear mongering around than to continue it? Let's be honest, it could have been any wild or stray animal. Just leave it at that and leave the speculation out of the news.
I'm disappointed that the Danville Weekly even printed this comment.
