A research scientist with a PhD in chemistry from Oxford sends a "dear cat menace" leaflet to neighbours warning of consequences if they do not control their 'killer cats'
An Oxford University educated research chemist has issued his cat-owning neighbours with leaflets warning them of "drastic action" if they continue to let their animals roam free and kill the birds in his garden.
Dr Clive Mowforth claims he has received arson threats in response to the leaflets after he told owners they should control their cats and stop letting them roam free to "murder" dozens of birds in his specially redeveloped garden.
He sent out the angry leaflets, complete with photos of the two "leading killers" and three dates detailing when the latest birds were killed.
The leaflet is addressed to "cat menace" and has been posted to more than 100 homes.
