A Cleveland family searching to find out what happened to their six-year-old cat found that answer on video. Their surveillance camera caught images of a man as he shot their cat “Jack,” reported Fox8 on Thursday.

At 3:30am on Wednesday, the surveillance video shows three men walking in front of Danielle Stigermeier’s home near 133 St. and Puritas Avenue. One of the men reaches over to pet Jack. The man then takes a few steps. He turns around. Then shoots the cat.

Jack is then seen dragging his feet behind him as he attempts to get away from the shooter.

Warning, video is disturbing.

Honey, the Stigermeier’s dog, found the injured Siamese mix cat in the backyard. Jack had been with the family since being adopted from a rescue group.

Although the family tried to save Jack, his spine was shattered from the blast. Jack had to be humanely put down.

Many are wondering what kind of a person can pet a friendly cat then shoot him. Anyone with information on the man in the video is asked to contact the Cleveland Police Department at (216) 623-5000 or the Cleveland Animal Protective League at (216) 771-4616.
