“A cat is recovering after narrowly avoiding death when it was shot with a crossbow on Teesside. X-ray images show how Smokey was speared by an 8in (20cm) crossbow bolt in Hartlepool. Vets said the bolt just missed vital organs…[a] Cleveland Police spokesman confirmed there had been other similar incidents in the Hartlepool area recently.”
I’m not exactly a cat person myself, but who in the world goes round shooting them with a crossbow of all things?! Wow. Just…wow.
