Investigators think pit bulls responsible for cat deaths in Palm Bay


By J.D. Gallop, from Florida Today

A Brevard County Animal Services investigator and Palm Bay police were investigating the deaths of at least two feral cats this morning, possibly caused by two roaming pit bulls.

The incident happened about 8 a.m. today near a home on Creel Road, just south of Palm Bay Road in the northeast section of the city.

“There are several feral cat colonies in that area,” said Capt. Bob Brown of Brevard County Animal Services. “The were at large and apparently attacked by two pit bulls.”

Palm Bay police were also called to the area. The animal services investigator was interviewing the owner of the dogs to see if the animals had gotten loose. The dogs were believed to be still at large this morning, Brown said.

An investigation is ongoing.
