El Monte police are looking for the person who left four mutilated dead cats in a city park over the past few weeks.

The bodies of the cats were found, their mouths and legs bound with duct tape, in the same area of Rio Vista Park on three separate days, KTLA-TV Channel 5  reported. In one case, the animal’s stomach was cut open and one of its legs skinned.

Police said they have no suspects in the case but believe the same person committed all of the crimes.

Anyone with information is asked to call El Monte police at (626) 580-2109.
