Strange creatures that appears to have a cat’s head and rat’s body has apparently been discovered by a terrified family who called their local church leader to kill them. The animals were found in a house in Lethabong, Rustenburg, in South Africa. Locals believe the creatures are cursed, according to reports, after their origin couldn’t be explained. The family said they first realised there was something strange going on when they heard unnerving noises coming from behind their pantry and went to investigate. They found the animals stuck behind the grocery cupboard and rather than help them, the family called the local pastor who arrived with his grinding machine to get the animals out and kill them.
But the Rustenburg Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) said they should not have been killed, insisting the animals should have been handed over to them for a thorough investigation.
Attending officers who were too late to most of the animals believe they are an "unusual cat breed" not seen before and wanted to take blood samples to ascertain exactly what they are and where they came from.
She said: "People must remain calm and call the SPCA emergency number. Killing a creature in an inhumane way could lead to prosecution. Just donâ€™t do anything to the animal and let us deal with it."
