Reward offered in cat cruelty case

Posted: Updated:

Lancaster City/County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward in an animal cruelty case where a domesticated cat was shot in the head with an arrow.

The agency will pay up to $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest and/or conviction of the person responsible.

The cat, named Mack, was shot with the field-tipped arrow December 22 in the 300 block of Walnut Street in Bainbridge. The arrow entered Mack's skull through the top of his head and exited the rear of his skull, and remained in place until it was removed by a veterinarian.

Mack survived the attack and has since been returned to his home. The arrow narrowly missed his brain but struck his sinuses, potentially causing a lifetime of sinus issues.

According to police, a witness reported seeing a silhouette of a person standing in the backyard of Mack's home. When the witness saw Mack on the front porch with an arrow in his head, the person fled toward North Second Street.

Anyone with information may call Susquehanna Regional Police at (717) 426-1164 or Lancaster City/County Crime Stoppers at (800) 322-1913. Callers do not have to give their names.
