The Waldoboro Police Department is expecting to make an arrest in the case of a cat pierced with an arrow that later died, according to Chief Bill Labombarde.

Lorraine Prock, who owns Prock Ridge Farm with her husband, Merle, discovered the pierced cat on her porch the evening of Dec. 7 as she went to let her dogs out. Prock said she had seen the cat around her barn, but "it was wild, you couldn't get near it."

"I don't know how it got up over the steps because that arrow was sticking out quite a ways," Prock said.

Labombarde said in a Dec. 19 interview Waldoboro's Animal Control Officer Laurice Ducharme went to the Procks' farm at around 8 p.m. on Dec. 7. and brought the cat to a veterinarian for treatment.

The arrow went in through the cat's nasal passage and exited under its left arm, Labombarde said.

"Based on my investigation, it appears as if this was done at close range," he said.

Labombarde had previously confirmed the arrow used was a target arrow.

The incident remains under investigation, but Labombarde indicated a conclusion may be pending.

"We are expecting to make an arrest," he said.

Prock said she believes the cat traveled the neighborhood, as it had turned up near her daughter-in-law's home about half a mile away.

"I guess he was a roamer, but that's no excuse to shoot him with an arrow," Prock said.

Anyone with information relating to the incident is asked to call the Waldoboro Police Department at 832-4500.
