Lawmen already getting tips about who may have shot cat with target arrow

GRIFTON, N.C. -

CrimeStoppers said they're already getting lots of tips about a cat found shot by an arrow Tuesday.

Grifton police officers and Pitt County deputies went door to door in the neighborhoods off MaCrae Street Wednesday searching for answers.

A woman found the cat under her car with an arrow through its back.

Officers took the cat to a local vet, but it didn't make it. They said the cat likely suffered for several days.

"If this person would do this to a defenseless animal, my biggest fear is them working their way to do something violent toward a human," said Lt. Kip Gaskins, Pitt County CrimeStoppers. "I think they need to be taken off the street as soon as possible, just like any other criminal. And I'm taking this case very seriously."

If you have any information about the incident, you're asked to call the Grifton Police Department. Anyone with information about this animal cruelty case can stay anonymous.
