Rome, August 5 - An environmental and animal
rights organization said on Monday that over the span of one
year a literal massacre of black cats in Italy for esoteric
rituals and for their fur left thousands of animals dead.
According to the Italian Association for the Defense of
Animals and the Environment (AIDAA), 35,000 felines were killed
in 2012.
"Black cats were bred, kidnapped and killed to use their
easily treatable fur for illegal jackets and glove linings,"
AIDAA said.
"Frequently these animals are caught directly in colonies,
especially those that are located near cemeteries where they are
often sacrificed in esoteric rites and improvised black masses,"
the organization said.
"Approximately 5,000-6,000 black felines were used for
bizarre rituals, especially during the full moon and Halloween,
by the over 800 Satanist groups existing in our country," AIDAA
said.
There are approximately 600,000 Satanist followers
according to the Italia dall'Estero website, of which over
half habitually use animal sacrifice, in particular black cats.
"Daily appeals are published daily for shelter volunteers
to meticulously verify anyone who comes asking specifically for
a black kitten for adoption. This phenomenon, underestimated in
general, is considered a real threat by volunteer workers at
shelters," Lorenzo Croce, national president for AIDAA said.
The eighth edition of National Black Cat day organized by
the group will be held on Sunday November 17 in the city of
Turin and at Lake Bracciano near Rome, two areas with a high
number of Satanic followers, AIDAA said.
