CALGARY –  A Calgary police investigation has concluded a decapitated cat found in the city’s northwest was the result of an animal attack.

Hidden Valley resident Richard Abbenbroek said he saw police looking through his trash can early Wednesday morning. He said police told him the the cat’s head was found on the front porch of its owner. Parts of the cat were found under a bush in the park bordering onto an alley of Hidden Ranch Road N.W.
