PETITION TARGET: New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office

UPDATE (1/23/2023): We sent our petition urging accountability to the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office; thank you so much to everyone who spoke up for these cats! Unfortunately, authorities did not connect anyone to this case and the case has since been closed. “NHSO Animal Services unit responded to Gordon Woods and investigated the cat that had been killed,” said Lt. Jerry Brewer. “At this point we don’t have any other evidence as to whom may have killed the cat.” We’ll keep doing all we can for animals! — Lady Freethinker Staff


Found with an arrow pierced through his lifeless body, an innocent cat died outside a home in Wilmington, N.C.

Resident Fred Holloway discovered the cruelly slain feline in his front yard and contacted law enforcement. An investigator from the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office reported to the scene but did not identify any witnesses or suspects, according to Lieutenant Jerry Brewer.

This horrifying incident comes amid multiple reports of arrows found in neighbor’s yards, including one arrow on the roof of a house, WECT reported.

Neighbors are rightfully worried about their beloved pets’ safety.

Whoever cruelly shot an arrow into a defenseless cat is still out there, and they must be found and charged before any more animals are harmed or killed.

Sign this petition urging the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office to use all available resources to identify the individual(s) responsible for needlessly killing an innocent cat and forward any applicable animal cruelty charges to a prosecutor.
