  1. Palmetto Bay/Cutler Bay have had a history of serial cat killings.....I guess this time the "wild animals" responsible have learned to use a dart gun.... (Um, sarcasm here, in case that went over anyone's head, most people still figure that a HUMAN animal has been behind this mess. "Wild animals" don't skin cats and hang them on fences, either....) Not to worry, no one has ever been convicted of the original set of heinous murders.
