Don't mind me, just trying to do my part to help spread awareness about a cat killer that has been kidnapping and killing cats in New York City by the name of Paul Zhang... Seriously, if you have any information on Paul Zhang that could potentially aid in his arrest, PLEASE report him to the FBI immediately so that we can maybe get him off the streets for good. Get this animal-killing psychopathic menace in prison where he belongs.
You can find more information about Paul Zhang by going to http://stoppaulzhang.wordpress.com/ . I'm just trying to spread the word out on what I know about his crazy ass in the hopes that it will result in him getting arrested.
If you see an Asian man setting traps around known cat colonies - call the police, do whatever you have to do. STOP HIM. This man is a former cat rescuer who has 'snapped' and is now killing the animals he catches. He killed the 25 cats who were formerly in his care, and the cats who were in his TNR colonies. He is now targeting other TNR colonies, especially around the Bushwick Avenue/Cypress Hills area - but he is mobile.
This is not TNR gossip - Zhang has admitted his behavior, and claims he will NOT stop - he believes he is 'saving' the cats by killing them. He will target any cat he sees - including family pets.
The ASPCA and NYPD are notified, and they need the public's help in stopping this lunatic.
Asian, 5'5" - 5'6", 40ish, wears jeans, military haircut. Drives a light blue Hyundai hatchback, license starts with AZM.
You know, Paul, the list of things you don't know could fill a fucking phone book (like the fact that you didn't know anthony had a loving home), and the fact that you take irreversible action based on limited knowledge is what makes you so scary and dangerous.
The neutered "light colored orange tabby" at the boiler store was probably anthony, and the only reason he would wander so far from home was because you were putting food down, you fucking jerk. Obviously you have abandoned the principles of TNR, which means you were putting food down simply to gain the trust of these innocent animals so you could come back and trap them in order to euthanize them. That is so sick. And, in typical god-like fashion, you see these places and these cats as belonging to you-- "MY colonies; MYcats." How does throwing some food down on the sidewalk equal a colony? You don't live here, you weren't asked to come here, and you fed those cats only so that you could later prove some warped point by killing them.
You count my block as one of your colonies (I hate that possessive pronoun-- "My cats" "My colonies;" what made the cats on my block, which i and others have been feeding for years, suddenly yours?) You claim you've been coming here for months, but I don't think that's true. I first heard of you about 8 weeks ago, and you certainly were not here every day or I would have seen you. It's a dead end, people know each other, and people know that I'm an animal person. I work at home three days a week, and at night two. So I'm here at all hours. After I first heard about you, I asked people to knock on my window if they saw you again, so i could find out who you were and what you were up to, but no one saw you.
The other orange tabby, the twin, must be the cat I've been seeing on my block the last few nights. It's been freaking me out because he looks so much like anthony, but he runs when I call him. I'm sure he's over here because you haven't been leaving food over there.
I went over to your other "colony" last night to feed the cats-- not for you, but for them. There were no cats there. I left a bunch of dry food, but I won't do that again. The neighbors really don't like it. And here's another thing you don't know. Miss Lee feeds in her back yard, which backs up against the houses on that boiler store corner. So on those days when the cats weren't there and you were convinced they must be starving to death and would be better off humanely killed, because nobody cares but you, and nobody does anything but you, and you know that euthanasia is the only answer; on those days, Paul, when you didn't see the cats, they were probably in Miss Lee's back yard eating arroz con pollo.
I'm not going to feed "your'" pseudo-colonies. I have been feeding the cats on my block for years. They come to my window when they're hungry, and I bring them out food, and when they're finished I throw away what they haven't eaten. Forgive me if i'm not doing it right; forgive me if i'm not "certified." Look at what certification did for you.
Just look at the pictures. I don't see any of these cats anymore. It's not just anthony I am grieving for.
I don't want your money. Give it to some kind and responsible TNR person to help maintain a real colony.

I just want to follow up on a few more thoughts:
1) I feel very sad for what happened because Anthony did have a loving
home. Please don't feel insulted by my saying this: Too many pets get lost
and many of them have a worse fate out there than to be humanely
euthanized. I don't know why this happened but it did. If I could
bring Anthony back, I would. I could feel how much you loved him. Perhaps
because so many people abandon their animals, especially in Bushwick area, I
just made a wrong decision thinking, like all of the other cats, no one
would look for them. Many people have made physical threats against
me. You may have read my posting that I do not fear death at all and I look
forward to it because I have a firm belief of the beauty of the after life.
If it's any consolation, you will see Anthony again just as I will reunite
with all of my animals again. I don't think I'm crazy or psycho, maybe
I would rather choose loss of life over likely or potential life
of suffering depending on how secure I perceive an animal's future. I
chose to euthanize my own house cats because I couldn't bear the thought
that they may end up in a not so good home and that they may get abandoned
or got out by accident and never to be found again which I have seen far too
2) The Super of the building by the Boiler Room
occasionally put out left over human food which I don't believe the cats
eat. I've been putting a lot of dry food and sometimes a few cans of wet
food. There is one light orange Tabby that's fixed, and another
one, his twin not fixed. And the rest of the cats are not fixed. I
hope you can get them TNRed soon or have someone help you. If I hadn't
intervened that spot from 2 years ago, there would be about 30 to 50 cats
there. Believe me, it's a pleasure for me not to have to go back to Bushwick. I really hate
that area. Please take good care of the cats and hopefully all can be TNRed
soon. Please contact Evon from the Mayor's Alliance to see what she can work
out with you.
Please do not ever abandon those 2 locations at Bushwick. I will not go
back there again.
That missing cat Bee Bop has been posted everywhere since summer. Did Paul Zhang kill this cat in Brooklyn? does anybody have any information on Paul Zhang's whereabouts on July 4 weekend?
