LYNN HAVEN, Florida (AP) - Bay County investigators are trying to find out who - or what - is behind a series of cat decapitations.
Two decapitated cats were found in the Panhandle neighborhood of Lynn Haven this week and another cat was found earlier this month.
The News Herald of Panama City reported an investigator from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation says it appears the first cat was killed in an intentional manner.
But Lynn Haven Police Chief David Messer told the newspaper that a coyote is the prime suspect.
Martin Main, a wildlife researcher, believes further testing will confirm that the cats were not killed by a coyote, adding that a coyote would not have left any of the cat's remains behind.
Investigators are waiting further testing.
