A cat found shot with an aluminum arrow had to be destroyed because of injuries, according to Mower County Chief Deputy Mark May, who said an 81-year-old Brownsdale woman reported the feline assault to police.

May said deputies responded to the woman’s home — the 2200 block of 585th Avenue — around 1:20 p.m. Saturday.

The report did not indicate whose cat it was or when the injuries may have occurred, May said.

The aluminum air-target arrow used was taken into evidence, he said.
