A Fort Saskatchewan resident wants the person responsible for killing her cat to face justice.
 
Mallory Bowen's cat, Jack, was found in pieces at a local trail. Police have determined the horrific act was human inflicted.
 
The four-year-old gray and black tabby was bought as a farm kitten. Bowen described him as the cat of all cats, he was a hunter and a great family pet, loved by all.
 
Jack was last seen on July 18 and within 24 hours Bowen posted on various social media platforms looking for him. On the 24th, the RCMP got in contact with Bowen and had her identify the cat. 
 
"That was really hard to do, it definitely looked a lot like him, he was micro-chipped, but I'm not sure if they could find it with what was left of him," explained Bowen of the traumatic experience.
 
The charge for injuring or endangering animals can carry up to a $10,000 fine or as much as five years in prison.
 
"I will do what I can to make sure this person gets the max they can for a sentence," added Bowen.

"It's more than my cat at this point. I'm a mother of three children and I live in community with so many children, and not just the children, it's the people of this community, who knows what this person is capable of doing."
 
If you have information about this investigation, please call the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP at (780) 997-7900 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
