Several Pets Shot With Arrows Across Atmore

April 30, 2022

Several pets, mostly cats, have been shot with arrows in the past several days across Atmore.

Milo Rae, a black and white cat, was shot on Fernway Drive.

“My 3- year old niece was playing outside with my great-aunt when their missing cat wandered up to them and had been shot through the head with an arrow,” Taylor Ware told about Milo Rae. They were forced to put the cat down.

Atmore Police said the pet shootings have occurred  across town — on Fernway Drive, Fridge Drive off McRae Street, the Rockaway Creek Road area, and on Swift Street.

Ware asked, “If it’s happening to pets like sport, how long is it until it moves on to children?”

Anyone with information is asked to call Atmore Animal Control at (251) 368-0859 or the Atmore Police Department at (251) 368-9141.

    It starts with small animals.

    This person needs to be put down, before their sick desires drive them to harming people.

    Armed and dangerous, with deadly intent; stop!

    When they catch the lowlifes that are doing this, they should line them up and shoot them with an arrow!!!!!! My heart goes out to all the families of these poor babies, as well as the babies themselves!!

    I am a pet parent.. I have cats , dogs and various other animals. I happen to live in one of the spacifuc areas mentioned.. Let me just say that I will go to extremes to protect or defend my animals. There is no line that I wouldn’t cross if I ( my animals) were to become one of the victims . It would be yo Azz if I found out who u are. You and your loved ones would best be ready bc It would be coming . BET THAT!

    Hunter 400 arrows can be purchased at Bass Pro, Cabelas and on Amazon. They’re used for their straight shot so the person would have some experience and knowledge of bow hunting. I hope the deputies catch this sick fool. Reminds me of Jeffrey Dahmer.

    Most people don’t have the stomach to do to these people what needs to be done when they’re caught.
    Give ‘em to me…both you and I will sleep just fine at the end of the day.

    To the lowlife that did this, there are people like me who would retaliate against you in the same manner and sleep like a newborn baby afterwards.

    About a year ago, we had one of our stray cats that we fed get shot across it’s back and it was paralyzed but dragged himself home. This was on River Annex Road in Cantonment, FL. Just last week, someone poisoned our little 6 week old kitten and we are pretty sure we know who is doing it. We are getting the cops involved. Just like I read above, these are family members not just animals. They are Gods creatures and to do something so hateful shows what type of people are out there in this world. God will deal with them in his own way one day and they will regret it.

    These aren’t just “pets”. They are “FAMILY MEMBERS” and that’s the way I look at it. When these satanic monsters are caught, I hope it’s eye for an eye! Whoever is involved needs to die. Prison is too good for them.

    Thank you. The farthest thing from my mind was to discover my sweet kitty with an arrow through his head!! He did make it home, so we do know what happened to him. But, how many pets have been killed with no information about their disappearances? We are and will continue working with the Law, Animal Control and the media to inform the community of the problem and to apprehend the evil, hardhearted perpetrators. There are stringent laws against ‘animal cruelty’!!

    Future serial killer at work. Actually a serial killer now but nothing will be done about these actions.

    I hope that whoever did this, is caught SOON!! This is sickening and disturbing! Anyone that could do something like this, is capable of doing anything!! And, whoever did this, I want you to know that you’re a SICK DISGUSTING LOWLIFE PIECE OF GARBAGE!!

    This is heart breaking in every way. I guess not everyone had a mother who drilled into them to, “Always put yourself in another’s place.” People that have no feelings for other living creatures, most likely do not have feelings for people either. Scary and very very sad.

    yes camaras are everywhere these days I have them inside and outside my home they work great and sometimes they go down and make me think I’m being hacked someone is viewing my camaras ? but yes Wal-Mart I’m sure sells arrows they will get caught alot of sites sell this stuff. what I will say is I’m a animal lover and yes I feed stray cats and dogs living in the woods on my street they drop them off in dark areas . all I can say is we all going to stand before God on judgement day . times are hard I get it ‘ however we can all step up and come together and stop this evil that is around us. ” amen “

    I hope you ever did this will meet his maker cause it’s gona happen.a sick person did this.breaks my heart to think people are heartless.hell is waiting for people like this

  17. Kate on April 30th, 2022 8:23 am

    What is the matter with people all ages. They have gone crazy with the violence.

  18. Susie on April 30th, 2022 8:18 am

    You’re right @Debbie! Whoever did this to these animals that are part of a family who loves and cares for them is a sick individual! And YES, they are capable of doing the same to humans. I’m sure with the help of neighbors and acquaintances alone, someone will know who they are and come forward. This is heart breaking. This is a horrible thing to do AND A CRIME! I sincerely hope they catch this hateful person.

    Poor Milo Rae managed to get himself back to his safe place to get help only for his owners to learn there was nothing that could be done for him . My heart goes out to the owners that had to be horrible for them to see their pet like that . Whoever did this has a black heart . They have serious mental issues and the person that said that about this person moving on to humans could be correct it is what we’ve heard about some of the murders from the past . There are so many security cameras out there now days that if they are checked by law enforcement they might can see the same vehicle in one or all of the videos if they can narrow down about what time this happened with each animal then give people a general time frame . Please don’t let your pets just wonder around unattended you would hate to be in Milo Rae’s owner shoes . I really hope this evil person is caught . Sorry this is so long , I have a huge soft spot for animals.
