DIAMOND SPRINGS (AP) — Authorities in Northern California are looking for a suspect who apparently struck a cat with a crossbow arrow.
El Dorado County Sheriff’s Lt. Bryan Golmitz says the wounded cat was found on Dec. 20 by deputies who were called out an animal cruelty call in Diamond Springs. When deputies found the cat, it was alive, but had an arrow lodged in its head.
Golmitz said the bolt did not appear to have penetrated the cat’s skull, with the arrow falling out when animal control and officers tried to capture the injured feline.
El Dorado County Animal Services Director Henry Brzezinski told the Sacramento Bee that the arrow apparently went in through the ear of the adult male cat named Taz and did not pierce his skull.
Brzezinski says the cat is recovering well, with a drain tube inserted to catch fluids removed Thursday.
