Taipei - Taiwan police on Thursday turned an American pastor over for prosecution for allegedly shooting stray cats with an air gun, killing at least one cat and injuring another.

"After questioning him, we turned him over for prosecution on charges of cruelty to animals and illegal use of firearms," a police officer from the Gushan Police Bureau in Kaohsiung, southern Taiwan, said by phone.

Under the Animal Protection Act, if pastor John Sisk is convicted of animal cruelty, he could face a maximum one-year sentence and a fine of up to 1 million Taiwan dollars (30,000 US dollars), the police officer, who gave only his surname Lin, said.
