MURRAY, UT (March 1, 2017) -- Humane Society of Utah adds reward for the arrest in cat shooting case


The Humane Society of Utah (HSU) announced that it is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for shooting a 4-year-old orange tabby cat named Robin Hood in the Millcreek, Utah area. The HSU hopes the reward assists the Salt Lake County Animal Services in obtaining information required to identify and charge the responsible assailant.


Robin Hood was found by a Millcreek resident Sunday, Feb. 26, 2017, in the area of 1300 East and 3300 South.


According to a statement by the Salt Lake County Animal Services, the cat was found with a Crosman pistol bolt lodged in his neck and wounds on the face caused by a shot from a pellet gun.


“The fact that this cat suffered for several days with these unwarranted injuries is both gruesome and heartbreaking,” said Deann Shepherd, HSU representative. “Torturous acts of violence against our companion animals in inexcusable and the person responsible needs to be held accountable. We hope this reward offers an incentive for someone to come forward with information.”


Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact Salt Lake County Animal Services at 801-743-7045.
