The Wood County Humane Society needs the publicâ??s help to find a cat killer.
On March 13, a woman and her son spotted a red soft-sided pet carrier sitting along Liberty Hi Road between Long Judson and Poe Roads in Bowling Green. Inside they found the dead body of a young black and white male cat.
â??They realized the cat was deceased, she called me and I went out to do some investigation,â?? said WCHS Humane Agent Dâ??Ann Gregory. She continued, â??The cat was inside the carrier and had been shot inside the carrier on the side of the road.â??
Gregory said the catâ??s gun-shot wound appears to have been caused by a large-caliber gun. No identification tags were found. Gregory believes the crime is an isolated incident. WCHS is turning to the community for answers.
â??We rely on our citizens to report this information,â?? said Gregory. â??If theyâ??ve seen anything, a stopped car or anything thrown on the side of the road, they can call us.â??
If you have any information, call the Wood County Humane Society at 419-601-1200.
