An investigation of animal cruelty is under way in the local area and the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office is putting the public on notice to take caution when it comes to their pets.
A Chester woman called authorities after she said she found her cat with an arrow sticking out of its head. A local veterinarian performed a successful emergency surgery to remove the arrow saving its life and the cat is said to be doing well.
The owner of the cat is offering a $500 reward for information that leads to the conviction and arrest of the subject responsible.
If you have any information you can call the Hancock County Sheriffs Office.
