PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- The Animal Welfare League in Port Charlotte Florida is investigating this photo of Thomas Mcguinness of Port Charlotte pointing the gun at a cat as a possible case of animal cruelty.

The post by Mcguinness that has since been taken down was reported to the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office and Animal Control.

"It angers us beyond belief," Charlotte County Animal Control Division Manager Lt. Brian Jones told the NBC affiliate in Ft. Myers.

Thomas Mcguinness later posted: "don't know why everybody so mad about a cat we only shot it twice."

"That's a confession, where I come from if we found a dead cat," Jones said.

Animal Control also found pictures on Facebook of Mcguninness pointing a gun at a dog and himself.

NBC also reports that authorities have made contact with Mcguinness and he is cooperating.
