A 26-year-old man from Lancaster was arrested after Officers were called to a residence where the occupier found the animal’s remains on a door handle on Sunday.
The young man was arrested on suspicion of burglary and animal destruction and bailed, pending further enquirers, according to BBC.
“This was extremely distressing for the occupant… at this time, we have no idea why this has happened,” said a police spokesman.

The arrest was made Thursday and the man who was charged has been bailed until June 20th.
