Hannibal cat survives being hit with arrow
HANNIBAL, Mo. -- A cat in the northeast Missouri town of Hannibal is recovering after surviving an arrow through the stomach.
The incident happened last week. Owner Mike Moore told KHQA-TV that his son found Junior the cat with an arrow in the stomach. Fortunately, the arrow missed Junior's lungs. Moore said the cat seems to be holding his own, but his recovery remains uncertain.
Animal Control officer Robert Stout said finding the shooter will be difficult unless a witness comes forward. But if the shooter is caught, he or she could face felony charges.
