The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is behind a cat being buried in concrete in Colorado City, a resident said.

"Somebody had stuck a cat in this pipe and the cat is now stuck in the concrete all the way up to it's head," said Andrew Chatwin, a Colorado City resident.

Chatwin thinks this is the church's way of getting former members to leave Colorado City.

"It's been going on for years," he told Right This Minute. "I've recorded up to a dozen dead cats put into his horse corral. I've recorded dead animals that have been put into his truck."

Chatwin is a former member of the pro-polygamy church.

The cat was cut from the pipe but died from its injuries.
