COEUR D’ALENE – Police officers in an Idaho city are seeking information regarding someone using a blowgun-type weapon to shoot cats.
KHQ-TV reported that animal control officers took a report this past weekend after an owner called in saying their cat had a metal rod protruding from its body.
Coeur d’Alene police say the rod was removed from the cat and missed its vital organs.
Last year, Coeur d’Alene police had a similar incident where a cat was shot by a blowgun.
Police do not have suspects for either case.
