ANGERS, France, March 23 (UPI) -- Animal rescuers in France are warning residents of a town where hundreds of felines have vanished to keep an eye on their cats.

Marie-Louise Triollet, vice president of the French Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, said several hundred cats vanished from Angers in 2011 and officials suspect a fur trafficker could have been behind the disappearances, The Local reported Friday.

"It's a serious phenomenon," Triollet said. "We have to warn the people of Angers. Tell cat owners to remain vigilant."
