BELLEVUE, Pa. - A Bellevue man was arrested earlier this month after admitting to shooting his cousin’s cat with a BB gun.
According to the criminal complaint, Timothy Wynn, 20, told police he shot the cat inside an apartment on Balph Street on Nov. 4 because it scratched him.
Police sad Wynn claimed to have also shot his dog and that the dog “didn’t mind.”
Wynn was charged with two counts of animal cruelty and was set to have a mental evaluation.
During their investigation police seized a BB handgun and a bolt action air rifle.
“I don’t believe in that. I don’t believe in cruelty to animals at all,” neighbor Sean Copeland said. “You shouldn’t have an animal if you’re going to treat it like that. I definitely wouldn’t shoot my animal or dog or cat.”
A family member told Channel 11’s Vince Sims that the cat survived the shooting and is doing well.
