Animal Cruelty Case:Cat Shot With Arrow Survives
OMAHA (KPTM)- The Nebraska Humane Society is looking into an animal cruelty case after a cat was dropped off after being shot by an arrow. They say a man found the cat in his yard near 68th and Pacific Wednesday. The arrow was surgically removed. The cat may have to have another surgery. The Humane Society doesn't't know who the owner is. The Nebraska Humane Society is offering a $1000.00 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person(s) responsible. Tipsters can call NHS at 402-444-7800, x1, and can remain anonymous. An anonymous donor is chipping in another $1000.00 reward for information. Animal control officers are also looking into a possible neglect case. They say a dead pit bull was spotted in a car near 44th and Dodge Wednesday. The owner of the dog told officers he was in a store for about a half hour. The dog was a five year old female pit bull. At NHS says that at the time of this incident the outside temperature was well over 90 degrees, and the inside temp in the car, where the dog was for 35 minutes, was 130 degrees. They say the dog owner parked directly in the sun, left the car windows up, and provided no ventilation for the dog. A boxer puppy was also in the car. The owner was cited for two counts of Omaha City Ordinance 6-72(4), which states it is illegal to leave an animal in a car for periods of time that may endanger the health or well-being of the animal. The puppy was released back to him. NHS warns that if it is too hot for you to sit in a car, it's also too hot for your dog.
