Wood County Humane Society seeks help finding cat killer


The Wood County Humane Society is seeking the public's help to identify who might be responsible for the shooting death of a cat found on the side of a rural road northwest of Bowling Green last week.

The young male black and white cat was found March 13 at 2:45 p.m. inside a soft-sided red pet carrier along Liberty Hi Road between Long Judson and Poe roads. The cat did not have a collar, and the carrier did not have any identifying tags or marks.

Humane Agent D'Ann Gregory said the cat appeared to have been confined in the carrier and then shot in the front shoulder and chest area with a larger-caliber gun. She said the humane society does not think the cat had been dead long before it was found, though recent cold weather may have preserved the body, making pinpointing the time of death tricky.

Anyone who might have information related to the case is asked to call Ms. Gregory at 419-601-1200 or email wchsreportcruelty@gmail.com.
