Yorktown Police and county Humane Law Enforcement officials are looking for the individual responsible for shooting a Mohegan Lake family’s cat with an arrow.
“Sammy,” a 6 or 7-year-old house cat was found by its owner with an arrow through its front leg around 5 p.m. Sunday. The owner, Marietta Del Mastro, said Sammy was last seen early that morning. After Del Mastro took the cat to Katonah-Bedford Veterinary Center, vets found Sammy had also been shot with a metal pellet from an air gun in the same leg. Both the arrow and pellet were removed, and Sammy was in good but guarded condition today.
Police investigating the case are seeking public help in identifying possible suspects. Confidential calls may be made to the Westchester SPCA’s 24 Hour Hotline number 914-941-7797 or the Yorktown Police Department at 914-962-4141.
