The Montreal SPCA says more kittens have been found dead in the Belcourt Crescent area of Laval, two weeks after a severely mutilated kitten was found dead in the same area. 

The SPCA says its staff members are "extremely disturbed by this case," especially since three more kittens, all less than two months old, were found dead yesterday morning.

The cause of death in the most recent cases isn't clear, but the SCPA says it suspects poisoning.

SPCA asks for public's help

There have been other cases of cats being poisoned in the area in recent months.

A news release on the SPCA's website called the slayings "heinous acts of cruelty."

The SPCA is investigating, but it says it lacks critical information.

The organization is offering a $2,000 reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the person responsible.

Anyone with information related to the case is asked to contact the SPCA's inspection department at inspection@spca.com or 514-735-2711 ext. 2230.
