Cat found shot 17 times
A cat was found Sunday in Bright's Grove with 17 pellet shots in its head.
Donna Pyette, shelter manager with the Sarnia Humane Society, said Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals agents are investigating, and the cat is in the care of a veterinarian.
A man on his way home from church Sunday spotted the cat on Lakeshore Road, west of Mike Weir Park, "half dragging himself alongside the road," she said.
The man stopped, saw the injuries to the animal's head and brought him to the shelter.
Pyette said the young male cat, named Joe by shelter staff, was in stable condition Monday, but is expected to lose anan wholesale cheap Ravens jerseys china

"We're hopeful he's going to make it; a lot will tell in the next couple of days."

the injuries are approximately a week old, Pyette said.
"Definitely someone either held him down, or put his head in a vice to inflict that kind of pain."
She said the veterinarian is hopeful all 17 pellets cancan cheap Ravens jerseys china
be removed, but the surgery and care is expected to be costly so the humane society is asking for donations.
The humane society is also asking that anyone with information about the incident contact the agents by calling the shelter at 519 344 7064.
"It was definitely done deliberately, raising a huge concern about the kind of individual that would do something like this," Pyette said.
"We just really want to find out who did this, and make sure it doesn't happen to another animal."
Pyette said there has been a "very alarming increase" in the number of cases of animal cruelty in Sarnia Lambton, with 38 reported last month compared to 25 in January 2013.
