LONDON, ON — London, Ontario may have a serial animal killer on the loose.
There have been 17 cases of dead animals being found with mutilated bodies.
Those include six coyotes, one bunny, one cat, one dog, several snakes, and birds.
Some of the animals have been skinned, decapitated, or left in strange poses.
London police say the killer has sometimes stabbed, strangled, or broken the necks of the animals.
