A psychopath is on the loose in Ontario, Canada.
Spread the word if you live in that area and be alert to any suspicious activity or words that might reveal the murderers identity.

Several gruesome discoveries involving mutilated animals have prompted a southwestern Ontario humane society to warn pet owners about a possible serial animal killer on the loose.
Last week, police in London, Ont., responded to a report of a headless dog found on top of a recycling bin near a beer store. The animal had been skinned and was missing organs.

It was the latest in a series of similar disturbing cases of dead animals found in public places around the city, according to the London Humane Society’s executive director, Judy Foster.

Over the past year, Foster said, there have been at least eight incidents involving at least 17 dead animals, including a skinned and beheaded bunny found on the Western University campus; a mutilated cat found in a park; six dead coyotes — two of them headless and skinned — placed in poses in three different locations; and several dead snakes left in a strange pose.
A stabbed and partially skinned goose was dropped off at the humane society’s front door, she said.
“It doesn’t make me feel better knowing there is such great similarities between all of these,” Foster said. “And the disturbing part is you don’t know when the animals died — at the start, halfway through or as a result of what was done to it. It’s impossible to forget what we’ve seen.”
All animals mutilated
All the animals were found with some form of mutilation, but there was no blood at the scenes, Foster said, suggesting they were killed elsewhere.
A scalpel appears to have been used in each case, she said.
“The animals are incredibly clean,” Foster said. “We believe that it would take a fair amount of time to do that.”
It also looks like the pattern is escalating, she said. First it was wildlife — coyotes and geese — and then domestic animals: a bunny, a cat and now a dog.
Foster said she doesn’t know if it’s the work of one person, a group or even copycats.
But Michael Arntfield, a criminology professor at Western University, believes one person is behind all the incidents.
“This will continue to escalate,” he said in a phone interview. “This is not a prank, it’s not mischief. It’s sexual, it’s predatory, it’s high-risk and it’s criminal.”
The clues in this story suggest a medical student. He or she is a mad, modern Jack the Ripper who must be stopped. Guard your animals, Ontario. Do not let them outside without supervision until the monster is caught.
