A Buchanan family is demanding justice after a family pet is killed.
Last week, their cat was found shot to death in a neighbor's yard.
On Wednesday Brad Leshman was inside his house around 8 a.m. when he heard a gunshot. His family owns two cats and a few dogs.
“About 8 o’clock I hear a 22 revolver go off…shotgun and I go up and 15 minutes later the gentleman across from us wasn't home and I found my cat in his yard,” says Leshman.
He ran outside to look for one of his cats and eventually found him in the neighbor's yard, next door, suffering from a gunshot wound.
The cat died a few minutes later. The Leshmans say they've been threatened several times by their neighbor, Dale Campbell. He says he wasn't home when the shots were fired and wouldn’t hurt a cat.
Campbell says, “I just wanna say I'm an old man. I'm tired and now I'm afraid for my personal safety because of the individual that lives next door that is accusing me of a crime that I did not do.”
The two neighbors have been feuding for more than years over everything including the control of their pets.
Michigan State Police and Berrien County Animal Control were called out last week to the scene.
Animal Control officially took over the case and recently handed it over to the Berrien County prosecutor's office.
The Leshmans ordered a necropsy from the veterinarian and waiting for the results.
