A Florida man was arrested for felony animal cruelty following his admission to police that he shot his neighbor’s cats because they were leaving droppings in his yard.
34-year-old Andrew Straley told police that he would frequently shoot the cats using a pellet gun but not to kill them but only to scare them. One of the cats was euthanized because the owners couldn’t afford the surgery to remove the pellet that was dislodged in the abdomen and also treat his broken knee. Another cat which was either shot or caught in an animal trap had most of its tail amputated by the vet.
Straley told the reporters he was instructed not to comment about his arrest.
