Shoot a cat dead in Michigan?

You shoot a cat dead in Michigan? What is going to happen? The person, a neighbor who allegedly shot a cat from 3 feet with a rifle may well find out. The County Sheriff's Department said it could lead to animal cruelty charges and careless use of a firearm. How can this be careless use if a firearm? 3 feet away and shoots a cat? The cat was called Ben and he was kept by Irene Sawyer and her daughter. The alleged shooter lived not far away and it seems that Irene tried to stop him. The place?: Ypsilanti Township:

The person who saw it said the person had scooped the cat up into a garbage bag afterwards. No rhyme or reason for this.

Well, a lot of people hate cats (see i hate cats). A lot of people love cats. The world is divided. Strange. The world is divided in many ways, however.

In the state of Michigan, if the perpetrator is charged and convicted it would be a felony (not all states classify such a crime as a felony). He could face a sentence of a fine of not more than $5,000 and/or imprisonment of not more than 4 years. Yes 4 years. See the law here. Don't shoot a cat dead in Michigan? Don't even consider it. Better - learn to love cats. If you hate them it must be based on incorrect information/training or irrational behavior.
