    Police are investigating after a dead cat was found hanging from a stop sign in Portland, Maine.

    Lt. James Sweatt says the cat was reported to police around 6:20 a.m. Thursday after it was first spotted at the intersection of Washington Avenue and Johansen Street. 

    The feline, which had a white belly and tiger stripes on its back, was not wearing a collar and did not have a microchip. Police are hoping to locate its owner. 

    A preliminary investigation found that the cat was likely struck by a car based upon its injuries. It was then attached to the stop sign after it had already died.
