Police investigate cat being shot by blowgun in Idaho

Associated Press

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.
