Horrific Case of Animal Abuse on SW Side

By Bill O’Neil

A horrific case of animal abuse has Animal Care Services asking for your help in finding whoever is responsible.

“This case is probably one of the most terrible things our cruelty investigators have ever seen” Lisa Norwood with Animal Care Services told KTSA News, describing the case of “Maggie”–an orange tabby found shot through with an arrow in a neighborhood off of Valley Hi Drive over the weekend.

“A friendly neighborhood cat… and for whatever reason… somebody decided to enact a cruel, cruel act on her–and shot her through her upper body with an arrow” Norwood said, adding “This is a weapon that is used to hunt big game.”

The cat survived for a short time, but ultimately had to be euthanized.

Investigators said they have a number of solid leads in trying to track down whoever is responsible–but Norwood said they could use a little more.

“Any information–even if they think it’s just the slightest thing… call 311” Norwood said.
