Rodney and his wife say the cat found shot dead was a community cat that he and his wife helped care for.
Animal officers saw the cat was shot with a BB gun.
“I peeled through layers of her fur and seen that there was a pellet,” Rodney told us.
Rodney says they called the cat Coon because her eyes looked like a raccoon’s. They were shocked to learn the cat was one of two animals killed.
“Everybody loves the cats, they’re friendly, and just for this to happen is a tragedy,” Rodney said.
“As far as animal abuse of this nature, this is, this is the first,” said Rebecca Ross, the Director of Animal Services at McKamey Animal Shelter.
Two deaths in three days are leaving McKamey officers with lots of questions.
“The neighbors that we have spoken with, they’ve never seen the German Shepherd before,” Ross told us.
Residents say the dog was found in an alleyway, which is a popular place to dump the trash.
These crimes are devastating and investigators are on high-alert. McKamey wants to get to the bottom of this, and Rodney wants justice.
“If you see something, say something,” Rodney said.
