This photo of a cat shot and killed with an arrow was posted on Facebook August 26 by a wimpy monster named Kevin Paz (AKA Kev Meija). No information is given on him unless you send him a friend request. The photo has been reported.
WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGE: if you go to his Facebook page now you will see that he has impliedly admitted also to injurying a dog around his muzzle [Update (28th Aug): he claims to have done this but it seems someone else shot the dog some time ago and he is revelling in the cruelty and trying to get attention from someone else’s crime].
The dog is bleeding profusely and in great distress. I presume that he owns this dog (apparently not). He has more or less, in so many words, admitted to injuring this dog. This is evidence of the crime of animal cruelty. He should be arrested at least. Facebook should take down his entire page. I have communicated with him – you can see the communication below. I have added a link to this page on his FB page (see screenshot) so Kevin Paz can visit it and see how his behavior has been exposed to the world. He needs to be confronted.
The police should be able to locate him through his computer IP address (unless he has hidden it). I would urge people to report him to the police who might be able to track him down.
A petition (which is now closed) gathered more than 19,000 signatures asking Facebook to flag horrific animal abuse photos. We all know what happens when we contact Facebook. A “canned” message comes back that reads
“Thank you for taking time to report what you think might be in conflict with the guidelines for the Facebook community. Reports like yours are important to make Facebook a safe and pleasant environment. At this time we have checked the page that you have reported for violent images, but do not consider that the content is in breach of our Guidelines for the community.”
Hopefully, someone knows the abuser and can contact authorities. Not that any action will be taken because Kevin can always claim that’s what he’d do to a cat, should the cat attack his chickens. He hasn’t actually admitted to anything. Even if he did, the case would likely die out in court after being postponed three or four times.
Feel free to go to Kevin’s Facebook page and leave him a message.
P.S. This is a postscript from Michael. If you go to his Facebook page now you will see a dog at the top of the page, very badly injured having been hit around the muzzle, bleeding profusely (warning: graphic and disturbing). This person is a criminal. He should be arrested immediately for animal abuse and animal cruelty. He has communicated with me on FB.
P.P.S. Judging by comments on the FB page concerned added later it seems that this account is entirely fake:
