A Waianae man was arrested for allegedly shooting his neighbor’s cat with a pellet gun.
Honolulu police are investigating the first-degree animal cruelty case.
A 27-year-old man was arrested at his home Tuesday night for the crime.
Police say the cat was found dead and the Hawaiian Humane Society is doing a necropsy on the animal to determine how it died.
They will then turn that information over to police.
The man was released pending further investigation.
