CHARLOTTE COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Southwest Florida investigators are looking into a disturbing photo posted online. It shows a man holding a cat by it's "scruff" and pointing a gun at its head.

The Facebook post, which has been removed, was first reported to the Charlotte County Animal Welfare League. "To see something like that, it just turns my stomach," said Sharon Thomas, the executive director at Animal Welfare League. "Just to pretend you're doing it, or to think that it's funny in any shape or form, is criminal to me."

Animal control also found pictures of the same man pointing a gun at a dog. They are now treating this as a possible case of animal cruelty.
