Who is poisoning the Elmhurst kitties?
Stray cats have been turning up dead, baffling an Elmhurst man, who's been caring for them for years.
"There used to be 12 or 13, now there are nine sometimes three," according to David Taylor, Vice President of Yoga Gupta Ashram.
The feline caretaker has turned his backyard on 51st Avenue into a playground. But, he says a few weeks ago, it went from backyard to graveyard when dead cats began showing up -- some at his front door.
"They are dead they are stiff when we find them, and we find them in unusual places," Taylor explained.
Taylor and others on the block are sad and upset about the deaths and believe the cats are being poisoned. "We suspect these animals are killed, slaughtered or poisoned," adding they've called 311 and the police.
