DALLAS --The SPCA is upping the ante in hopes of tracking down a cat killer.

"No leads have taken the detective anywhere and so we're trying to assist the Dallas Police Department again by upping that reward to 75- hundred dollars," James Bias, President of the SPCA of Texas, said.

Back in June, two cats were impaled on a fence surrounding the Redmond Cliff Apartments near Westmoreland and Fort Worth Avenue in Oak Cliff. One died.

"That`s just cruel and evil," said Rita Garza, who lives in the complex.

At that time, the SPCA teamed up with DPD to offer a $5,000 reward. Now, $7,500 is up for grabs.

There's fear that whoever did this, may soon be up to something even more sinister.

"Major law enforcement agencies use certain indicators to determine if somebody is likely to be a serial killer. Animal cruelty is one of those indicators," Bias explains.

Rita Garza worries this could be kids playing a sick prank.

"It`s a sign to the parents to pay attention to your kids and if they are doing this now just think what they could do later down the line if you don`t get them help now," Garza said.
