December 6－Canada: For those of you who have been following this story, the third suspect（嫌疑犯）in the Canadian Cat Mutilation（残害）case has been caught. On March 8, after just under a year of searching, the “Find Matt Campaign” received information that would comfort many. Now known as Mattew Kaczorowski, 21 years old, this cat mutilator was picked up by the police from the streets of Vancouver.
In May 2001, three young men took a young cat, named “Kensington” after the area of town from where she was taken, from the street to a house. They began to cruelly treat and mutilate her to death, videotaping the attack. Two of the suspects, recognized as 21-year-old Jesse Champlain Power and 24-year-old Anthony Ryan Wennekers, were arrested shortly after the incident. Neither helped the police in an effort to find the third suspect, at the time known only as “Matt. ”
In May 2002, Katie set up the “Find Matt Campaign”, with the goals of raising public awareness（意识）about animal cruelty and having as many eyes as possible look for Matt.
“I don’t think Matt would have been caught had it not been for Katie Woodward’s information,” said Detective Gordon Scott, one of the arresting officers.
Kaczorowski faces the charges of animal cruelty, theft under $ 5,000 and possession of property taken by crime, but one charge remains absent: that of animal cruelty. According to Canadian law, this kind of crime must be charged within six months.
The case is now before the Courts.
While finding Matt is a big step in the right direction of this case, it is not over. It remains that Kensington’s guardian（监护人）has not yet come forward. It is important that her guardian speak out to lessen the possibility of the charges being dropped.
