Severed cat head found in Steiner Street yard

Police are investigating the discovery of the severed head of a cat in the backyard of a Steiner Street home Saturday afternoon.

The report has some similarities to two cases being investigated in Oxford. The most recent discovery of a beheaded cat was reported in that town July 7. Both Oxford incidents took place on the same street.

According to Fairfield police, the local homeowner saw the cat's head on an artificial turf golf green at the rear of his yard. The head had been cleanly cut from the cat's body and did not appear to been removed by the attack of another animal, according to the report.
