Md. Cat Recovering After Being Shot with Two Foot Arrow

(WGGB) — Animal control officers in Maryland are trying to figure out who shot a cat with an arrow in suburban Maryland.

Anne Arundel County Police say that on Wednesday, June 12, a Millersville, Md. resident called after seeing their 2-year-old cat Xena had been shot with an arrow, approximately two feet in length, through her left shoulder.

Millersville is located about about 30 minutes south of Baltimore.

Officers were not initially able to catch Xena because she was scared, but they were able to finally catch up with her on Friday.

Police say that Xena was then taken to a local animal rescue group, who arranged for her to be seen by a veterinarian.

Staff at the Belair Veterinary Hospital in Bowie, Md. were able to treat Xena for her injuries. She was released from the hospital this past Sunday and is back with that rescue group recovering.

Animal control officers are still working to determine who shot Xena and where the incident actually took place. They are urging residents in the area who may have information to give their county police or animal control a call.
