BELLVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Officials at an Ohio animal shelter say a cat they found had been shot with an arrow is now recovering.
The Humane Society of Richland County says the orange tabby cat named Oliver Queen was brought in Tuesday after the society learned he had been shot with an arrow in Bellville near Mansfield. Cleveland.com reports the society noted it is currently hunting season, but doesn’t know if it was intentional or not.
Officials at the shelter say the arrow missed the cat’s heart by two inches. A spokesman for the humane society says the animal “has a good prognosis but is not out of the woods yet.” They say the cat does not have a known owner, and the society is currently collecting donations for the cat’s care.
