Ohio cat shot with arrow recovering after surgery

BUCYRUS, Ohio (AP) — An animal welfare worker says a cat shot with an arrow marks the fourth such case reported in a northern Ohio county since July.

The Bucyrus Telegraph-Forum reports that a Crawford County Humane Society agent in Bucyrus received a call Friday from police in nearby Galion that a cat was found with an arrow in its face.

Agent Angela Chandler says the female cat is recovering after surgery. The arrow entered under the cat’s lower jawbone and came out between the upper jawbone and cheekbone.

Chandler says the humane society has received three other reports of cats being shot with arrows in the Galion area. But she couldn’t find them after driving to Galion.

Galion police say they know of at least one similar case and are investigating.
