REEDS SPRING, Mo. (AP) - A no-kill animal shelter is stepping in after someone threatened to begin killing stray cats at a mobile home park in southwest Missouri.

Residents of the White Eagle Woods park in Stone County recently received an anonymous letter urging them to put out water dishes tainted with antifreeze. Residents reported that dead cats began showing up a short time later.

KYTV reports (https://bit.ly/1tZIpYC ) the Castaway Animal Rescue Effort said Wednesday it’s working with the Humane Society of Missouri to rescue stray cats from the park. Some will be made available for adoption and others will be nursed back to health.

The anonymous letter had warned residents of the mobile home park their rents would rise if the stray felines did not disappear.
