THIS is the gruesome image of a decapitated bunny allegedly found in a popular Costa del Sol park last week. 

Local Cruz Lopez shared the images online saying she had also found two injured bunnies at Paloma Park in expat hotspot Benalmadena. 

She also shared images of two dead birds, however it was not clear how they had died. 

“Finding things like this is so horrific,” she wrote, “In one week two seriously injured rabbits and one beheaded.

“We didn’t need a house of terror for Halloween, a walk in the park is terrifying enough!” 

British expats branded the yet unknown sicko as ‘pure evil’. 

“Disgusting behaviour,” commented one, “Just don’t understand why or how anybody can be so evil and cruel- hope they will be caught!”

It comes after eyewitnesses reported seeing a teenager abusing animals in the park last month. 

“I watched him and his two friends kicking the chickens and ducks in Paloma Park in Benalmadena,” one resident claimed in an alarming Facebook post.

“He also tried to wring this poor little rabbit’s neck. I grabbed it from him and chased him and his accomplices off. I’m sorry to say I think it’s a regular occurrence.

“We have reported the incident to the park manager and are going to report it to the Costa del Sol tourism unit.”

When professional profiling of criminals began in the US in the 1970s, one of the FBI’s most consistent findings was that childhood animal cruelty appeared to be a common behaviour among serial murderers and rapists.

Many notorious serial killers – including Jeffrey Dahmer – began by torturing and killing animals when they were children. 

Jamie Bulger’s murderer Robert Thompson was also cruel to household pets while Moors murderer Ian Brady also abused animals.
