Deputies: Oregon man wounded nuisance cat with arrow

The Associated Press

PHOENIX, Ore. — A southern Oregon man has been accused of shooting a neighbor’s cat with an arrow because it harassed his own cats and knocked over his garbage cans.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office says the man called the cat a nuisance.

Deputies said in an affidavit the arrow went through the cat’s abdomen. It was treated at a pet hospital and is expected to survive.

Officers said they were called Friday by people caring for the cat.

The Mail Tribune reports that 25-year-old Cody Edward Daigneault made an initial court appearance Monday on an animal abuse charge. Court records list no lawyer has been appointed yet.

Deputies say Daigneault lives near Phoenix, outside Medford. He was held without bail on a probation violation from an unrelated assault case.
