KOTA KINABALU: A businesswoman here has received a gruesome warning – a dead cat with its eyes gouged out was left outside her house, along with a threatening note.
The single mother, however, was not at home during the incident as she was away with her children, aged 13 and 16, at a relative’s house.
A neighbour, alerted by the foul smell, found the eyeless carcass and quickly called the woman at about 2.50pm on Sunday.
When the businesswoman, identified as Yau Chook, 33, rushed home several hours later, she saw the threatening note outside her door but the dead cat had been removed.
The note, in Malay, read: Awas sebelum saya lakukan pada kamu seperti haiwan ini. Kau itu perempuan geteh dan selagi kau masih hidup selagi aku tidak berhenti untuk menghancurkan hidup mu dan keluargamu.
(Be careful before I do to you as I did to this animal. You are a horny woman and for as long you live I will not stop destroying you and your family.)
Fearing for her safety and that of her children, Yau Chook immediately lodged a police report.
Sandakan district police chief Asst Comm Rowell Marong said they rarely had cases involving such a gruesome threat.
