BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) — People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is offering a reward in an effort to find whoever shot a cat with an arrow.

A Battle Creek homeowner found the struggling cat on her front lawn and rushed the cat to the local veterinarian clinic. The arrow was removed last week, and the cat survived.

The cat, who is now named Lucky, is expected to be OK.

PETA is now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever shot the cat.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Battle Creek Police Department at 269.966.3322.

The Battle Creek incident is similar to a case out of Eaton County in October in which a cat was found shot with a crossbow bolt. That cat, named Booger, also survived. A $5,000 reward has also been offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in that case.
