Eltham residents are fearing for their pets' lives after chicken was found in the middle of the road.

A woman recently posted on Eltham, SE9 after she found a whole cooked chicken for the second time in a week on Lilburne Road.

She said: “I have had to pick a whole cooked chicken up that some idiot is leaving in the middle of Lilburne road se9 obviously to try and get animals run over.

“I have four cats and a dog and my cats regularly walk halfway to the shop with me so I was rather fuming when I see this I managed to get a video this time so anyone on Lilburne road or other roads with animals please be careful and keep an eye on ur pets.”

Lots of people commented saying that it could be poisoned, reminding their friends to keep their pets just in case.

One woman speculated it might be how the Croydon Cat Killer lures his victims, while another said that she couldn’t believe how sick and twisted people could be.

According to SNARL the cat killer has claimed over 400 victims over the years and so Britain is feeling extra sensitive when it comes to their pets.

Make sure to keep a close eye on your pets when walking them, this may be nothing but it important to stay vigilant.
