Two men were filmed killing and maiming a stray cat in Pomona, California, and police are still looking for the suspects.
The dark and grainy video shows two men stopping their vehicle in front of a business at 560 Union Avenue and fatally shooting a feline in the parking lot. The cat was initially seen flailing around before dying.
The men then jump over the fence and approach the cat. One of the men pulls out a sharp object and cuts the animal open while the other man records the incident on his cell phone.

Authorities released surveillance video of the men and asked the public for help identifying them.
CFR Patio employees feed the feral cats in the area and have taken some of the felines home. But, they say, “we can’t take them all, so we try to take care of them here as much as we can.”

Some of the cats are quite friendly, including the one that was killed, named Scruffy. Someone was preparing their house to take the cat with them.
The humane society took the cat’s body as evidence and is viewing security video from other businesses in the area to help with the investigation.
