In northern Louisiana, animal rescuers and organizations like the Humane Society of Louisiana are seeing a shocking increase in horrific, extreme animal abuse cases. People are shooting cats and dogs with guns — and also with bow-and-arrows.

“It’s a lot more common than you think, and it keeps happening because no one’s held accountable,” The Humane Society said.

Executive Director of The Humane Society of Louisiana, Jeff Dorson, said they frequently get disturbing calls of animals being shot in this area. “There’s a high level of crime against animals in north Louisiana because there are very few shelters, animal control departments, and there’s a huge gap in the infrastructure in helping stray and unwanted animals,” Dorson told Knoe 8 News.

The situation keeps getting worse. Some of the violence inflicted against these defenseless pets comes from neighbors who take out their aggression on others’ beloved companion animals.
