Cat survives after being found shot in neck with crossbow
BATTLE CREEK, Mich. - A cat survived being shot with a crossbow in southern Michigan and authorities are trying to find the person responsible.
Laurie Sullivan tells the Battle Creek Enquirer she found the cat in Battle Creek with a crossbow arrow, known as a bolt, stuck through his neck. Sullivan says she was "mortified."
Benjamin Huelsbergen at Turner Veterinary Clinic removed it Tuesday and says it didn't damage muscle or bone. Sullivan says the cat was "purring and trusting and loving 24 hours later."
Animal Control Officer Mike Ehart says the person who shot the cat could face an animal cruelty charge.
Another cat was found in early October in Eaton County's Kalamo Township with a crossbow arrow through his chest. Kalamo Township is about 27 miles northeast of Battle Creek.
