Norwich police were later called to an allotment and found the body parts of a dead cat.

Horrified onlookers have also seen a man swinging a cat by their tail against a set of garages in the city.

In the latest incident yesterday police were contacted by a veterinary practice in which they were treating a stray cat, again with its ears removed.

PC Shaun Quinn of Norwich police said: “These are shocking incidents and whilst we cannot determine at this stage exactly how all the cats came to be injured and whether all the incidents are linked, we know they will cause some distress to members of the community.

“We are conducting a number of enquiries and liaising with the RSPCA, as well as increasing patrols in the area.
