Parents and guardians, the greatest dangers for teen drivers — and the areas of focus for your conversation — are alcohol consumption, inconsistent or no seat belt use, distracted driving, speeding, and driving with passengers in the vehicle.
Somerville Police received a call today, Thursday, September 17, regarding a deceased cat that was substantially mutilated. The cat was brought to Huron Vet by the Somerville Animal Control Officer and it was determined that the injuries were caused by a canine species, possibly a coyote, or a fisher cat, and not a human. It appears that the two predators may have been fighting over the cat leading to the extreme injuries. Social media posts have appeared falsely reporting that the cat was killed in a ritualistic manner by a human. Those assumptions are false. Our deepest sympathies go to the owner of the cat.
