Tomcat Turns Killer

A most unusual killer has showed up at the G.H. Te-Grootenhuis farm, 6 mi. North of Baldwin which is now rented by Jan Vandeberg.  A strange, big tomcat is the killer, he sneaked in the barn one afternoon and killed four of the 12 little two-day old piglets.  The little pigs were under a light bulb, protected so the sow could not get to them.  As a result, the tomcat had it all his own way.
