Mysterious cat deaths in Martin County

Mysterious cat deaths in Martin County

Martin County, Fla- The Martin County Sheriff’s Office is investigating three cases of unusual feline deaths which occurred in January and again this month.

Three family pets have died mysteriously resulting from Ethylene-Glycol Toxicity. Ethylene-Glycol is a chemical commonly found in anti-freeze, which if ingested can be deadly.

The first two cats belonged to a Sewall’s Point family. The animals mysteriously died last month. The third cat belonged to a Jensen Beach family. That animal died this month. Although there is no direct evidence at this time that the deaths were the result of an intentional act, and we have not yet established a direct link between the three animals, we do find these animal deaths to be somewhat suspicious.

If you are a cat owner whose cat fell ill and suddenly died for no clear reason, we are asking that you call us, regardless of where you live in Martin County. Please call Sergeant Pat Colasuonno at 220-7141.

We would also like to caution pet owners about leaving your animals unattended, as we work to determine an outcome in these pet deaths.
