Dear Neighbors of ham Hill 2/28/2012
On Monday Feb 27th a man knocked on my door to let me know he had shot & killed my cat. His exact words were “I shot your cat. I usually shoot at his feet but this time I got him & it killed it” My response was “WHY ARE YOU SHOOTING AT MY CAT?????” “If you had a problem with my cat on your property, why didn’t you come tell us so we could find a way to remedy the situation and have a chance to keep our beloved cat out of harm’s way?” His aloof response to me was.. ” I didn’t know whose cat it was. I thought it was the other guys. “I am pretty sure that “guy” didn’t want his cat shot at either! My husband and I have been living here together raising our family for the last 13 years. this home was in mu husband’s family for over 30 years now. On a daily basis I have someone else’s cats and or dogs in my yard. We live on a big hill with a large field connecting all of our yards. My cat was a mouser. He was fixed. He wasn’t a problem to anyone. To have a neighbor shooting at will at neighborhood animals is just too much for me to wrap my head around. I am passing out this flyer to inform the neighborhood of this man’s actions, had I known this was occurring I would have been diligent in keeping my cat away from this man’s yard. But unfortunately he did not give our family a chance or the dignity to even try! I am disgusted by this behavior and feel that everyone else should at least have the knowledge that this is going on. The worst part is that this man is a “Pastor” of the Destiny Church in downtown Centralia. Mr. Bill Bates. A man of God??? I think Not! A man of My God would have used communication, not a weapon! My children are very distraught over this, and now are scared of our neighbors. By law there is not much we can do about this, aside from sue, which we are still considering. But I think everyone who owns animals that roam free on Ham Hill, which last time I checked were a lot, need be aware that there is a man amongst us that is willing and able to kill it. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
And if this has happened to you or your pets, we would like to know, as we are considering a lawsuit. Any information pertaining to this would be helpful.
